Other conditions will remain unchanged.

An existing industrial zone on both sides of Seventh St. and extending up Market St. to the project boundary will remain unchanged. And the heavy industrial area below the Nimitz Freeway will keep its present zoning. If after the hearing the changes are approved by the planning commission, the proposal will go to the City Coun terest, the City Planning Commission selected a night meeting to allow all interested parties to attend.

Actually, the rezoning proposed now will vary little from the present use of the land. And a large portion of the Acorn project will not be re-zoned at all. The final rezoning to match the ultimate land use plan developed by the Oakland Redevelopment Agency will take place after City Council adoption of the final plan and during the "execution" phase of the project. The Acorn project is the first in a 10-year, five-step program planned for a 250-block area. It is roughly bounded by 10th, Rrush, First and Cypress Streets.

The entire project area is bounded by the Southern Pacific tracks on the West and South and by West Grand Ave. on the North and Brush St. on the East. Zoning changes to be aired Nov, 12 include: 1 Rezoning about eight blocks across the top of the project area from multiple-dwelling to '-UR-C" ur til $15 Million Drive For Jewish College NEW YORK, Nov. 7 Plans for raising $15,000,000 in three years to improve facilities of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion were announced today.
