6 - frlda», April 30. Ht5 Redlands Daily facts Officials caught by surprise County's disposal rates may be doubled, tripled Published reports today of a possible double or triple rate increase at county pay-at-the-gale disposal sites have caught city and county officials off guard. All officials contacted this morning said they "had heard nothing" of a proposal by Robert A. Covington, county administrative officer, to raise the 40-cent-a-ton fee currently charged to a "dollar or more." Mayor Waldo F. Burroughs stated that it was common knowledge the 40-cent rate was not sufficient to pay operating costs at the cut-and-cover disposal sites, but that he had received no specific information on a rate increase. Similar statements were made by County Supervisor S. Wesley Break and by M. A. Nicholas, county engineer, whose depart, ment operates the dump sites Break declared, "I knew nothing about this. It may be a forewarning of some budget consideration." He also expressed some dissatisfaction with the idea of increasing the gate fees at the seven Valley dump sites without some adjustment at mountain and desert disposal sites where no charge is made. "The 40 cents was bad enough," Break asserted. Covington reportedly has stated that he intends to bring the pay-at-the-gate rate in line with the $1.30 a ton it actually costs to acquire and maintain the sites. He expects to boost revenue from $300,000 to $900,000 in 1965-66. Covington was not available today for clarification o£ his proposed rate increase. Also surprised about the possibility of increased disposal rates is Magnus Mead, Redlands city disposal superintendent. He expressed concern that a rate change might stir up new public reaction against the city's lib-year-old universal rubbish collection program. "I will try every way possible to absorb any extra costs. I'm not going to increase collection rates in Redlands if I can help it. "Our rubbish program is on a self-supporting basis now and the people are cooperating 100 per cent. There are few complaints and I would hate to make any changes," Mead said Richard Anderson, city finance director, reported that in .he 1964-65 fiscal year ending June 30 the city's rubbish collec- ;ion program will barely break even, with a surplus of about $2,000. A rate increase by the county would throw the city's collection program out of financial balance. At the present 40-cent-a-tor rate, Redlands will have pak the county about $8,000 in dump use charges at the end of• the current fiscal year. Anderson pointed out that a county order prohibiting Redlands from burn ing any of its tree debris wil probably increase the annua charge to $9,500 next year with out a rate increase. "If the gate fee is tripled, tb city's costs will increase cor respondingly," he noted. Anderson added that in the event the county does increase its rates, Redlands will probably take a new look at enterin; into its own cut-and-cover dis posal operation. "We couldn't consider it at th 40-cent rate, but at anythini over SI it might be practical,' he said. eiders of the Facts are Inrlte* to end their thoughts on questions t public interest ror use in the topic's Column.

Commercial development n the residential estate area will further fragment commu- ity commercial activity. A hopping center would absorb at most 25 per cent of the dis- josable income of the residents; liese same residents will still lave to rely on the existing ommercial areas of Redlands or 75 per cent of their needs. There is economic justifies ion to the developers who can eap the rewards of turning 10,000 per acre residential es ate land into $50,000. or more per acre commercial property. Should businessmen first at- empt to buy or lease property An Architect Findf : uin Project Sound Editor Facts: The decision o£ the planning commission on 13 April regarding the proposed Buin Development at Oak and Ford streets was the result of insufficient clarity with respect to interpretation of the Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance, specifically provisions pertaining to highway-freeway oriented facilities and the location of C-2 neighbor- iood shopping centers. Although the ordinance and master plan do not specify that H-F facilities must be buffered they do clearly provide that these facilities must adjoin the freeway. It is therefore obvious that the expansion of such facilities to other properties in the area feared by opponents of the project would not be permitted. Tennessee and Ford street interchanges are the only two complete interchanges located in Redlands. Highway-freeway oriented facilities should provide optimum visibility and identification to freeway travelers in both directions to allow ample reaction time for a safe and convenient exit. The location and topography of the Oak-Ford site fulfills this requirement admirably. The Master Plan has always envisioned a neighborhood shopping facility in this portion of the city. C-2 neighborhood shopping centers have on four, and C-l, on two previous occasions been determined, when meeting the standards detailed hi the zoning ordinance, to be compatible to residential areas despite initial resistance by nearby residents. Arbitrary discrimination in the case of the R-E zone against these uses as the Southeast Redlands Association demands its inequitable.

This fundraising drive will be conducted by Lions members who will call on Eedlands residents from 5 to 8 p.m. Long-handled brooms may be purchased for $2.00 and wisk brooms for $1.00. Chairman for the event this year is Vernon Crear, Sr., with Floyd Allen and Dale Gerguson serving on the committee. Proceeds from the drive will be used to purchase glasses for the blind and visual aids for school children. Chairman Crear announced that the quota this year is 100 per cent sale of Brooms and that Redlands residents are asked to lend their support to make the drive successful once again. Committee seeks water pact on school-parks A Park Study Committee proposal that the city and school district enter into a cooperative venture of creating parks on school campuses will be formalized at a special meeting of the study group May 5. The full 30-member Park Study Committee will consider a recommendation of its School- Park Subcommittee which has jeen working with school officials to establish a program of creating new parks on school sites where there is excess land. Specifically to be considered at next week's special meeting is a recommendation that the City of Redlands and the Redlands Unified School District enter into an agreement by which the City would provide water for irrigating the parks on a cost-basis, and, in turn, the School District would develop several school-parks adjacent to existing schools. It is hoped that the park areas can be located in close proximity to existing school playground facilities.

Is t proper that businessmen purchase residential estate property and ask the city to change he zoning to commercial to sat- sfy their needs when a large commercial area has already 3een established? It is noted that there are businessmen who are buying property in the commercial zones of Redlands and developing it n an attractive style compatible with city codes and ordi- ances. 3. Compatability with the general development in the area: to. The people in the immediate vicinity of the proposed commercial development have, by petition, expressed overwhelming opposition t> a zone variance for commercial development in an area now zoned resi dential estate. These people feel that their property will be less desirable to them personally if a shop ping center is close by. They chose this area in preference to residential areas around established shopping centers.

He proposed the following possible uses: 3. homes on residential estate size lots. b. light industrial. a park, riding trails, etc. a golf course or tennis Shippers in Southern Califor- a who applied for Early Ma- urity allotments were granted 8 cars and Arizona was given an allotment of 125 cars. This is a cut of 100 cars for the des- :rt area. Prices in the auctions declined slightly last week. A to- al of 117 cars of Navels sold at prices averaging $4.31 per carton delivered, down 22 cents rom the previous week. Twen- y-four cars of California-Arizona Valencias averaged $3.31, down 20 cents for the week. When final figures for the current week are in, they will show a sharp drop from these high evels which reflected the shortage of supplies occasioned by he light shipments during the wo weeks of rain. c. d. club. e. orange groves. i. church. g.

The likelihood of inconvenience being caused by facilities of the type proposed is reduced to an absolute minimum when the proponent provides his own peripheral residential area. The same is true of the highway freeway oriented facilities with respect to the neighborhood shopping center. The most ideal condition would logically be the following sequence: Residential existing; Residential by proponent; buffering and transition to C-2; C-2 providing buffering and transition to H-F facilities. Upon examination I find that the proposal by the Buin Corporation provides exactly this sequence. Further, it is apparent that the terracing of the land and the elevations and configurations of the structures proposed is such that no interference would be created with the distant views now enjoyed by surrounding residents. The quality of the research and planning that has gone into this proposal is of the highest order. Since the parcel of land involved obviously does not lend itself to total estate home development because of its topo graphy and proximity to the ex isting highway and freeway this proposal constitutes ideal utilization of the land.
