The top fashion and photographer's model is first woman police officer in Hamilton, Canada, Industry Parks Are Booming Around Nation By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-The spread of Industrial parks across the nation is accented today by a newcomer — New York City — and the report of a survey by the New | England Council showing that its! six states now have 113 estab-j lished and 18 others in the pro- 1 posal stage. i Most other sections can point! to existing and planned industrial! parks or districts. For both the i growing sections of the land and j the older and more static ones, the idea oilers two chief gains; New payrolls boost the local economy or offset previous losses; local and state governments col-! lect more taxes. ! Unused Plots i The idea works this way: The planners find either large unused plots in the cities or run down plots that often have been taken over by the city for unpaid taxes; or they seek wide open spaces on city outskirts, and sometimes in its suburbs. Such a site becomes an industrial park when a developmental group, civic or private, has it 7-oned for industrial building and installs adequate facilities — access roads, water and gas mains, electricity and sewer lines. Railroad facilities often are stressed. Some times private industry takes over and builds plants on the site. Often local development bodies build what they consider suitable plants and find a company interested* in operating in, them. Or the company may bei found first and the new plant tail- i ored to its needs. Public Sponsorship New York City's industrial park will be its first under public sponsorship — a largely vacant 100 acre tract in the flatlands of Brooklyn. (A private industrial! park in the same general area! was approved by the city last year.) The proposed one illustrates the gains cities expect from such projects: The land is now assessed at 2^4 million dollars and yields the city about $40,000 a year in taxes. The city expects its development to cost as much as 20 million dollars (to be regained by sale to concerns that settle there), afford jobs for 3,000, and bring in $700,000 a year in taxes. The New England Council's survey reports the 113 industrial parks in those six states have a recorded investment of 30 million dollars for promotion, land acquisition and construction on the Bites. It estimates that unreported investments would bring the total to around 60 million dollars. Postwar Push The industrial park idea has been pushed in New England in postwar years to repair the damage caused by the flight of much of the textile industry to the South. Concern also has been expressed iu both New York City and state of late because its industrial growth wasn't keeping pace with that of the nation as a whole and compared badly with some of the newer, fast growing industrial regions. fa its survey the New England Council reports that Massachusetts now has 59 parks or districts with 5 more proposed; Maine has 22 with 7 more under consideration; Rhode Island has 10 and talks of one other; Connecticut lias 9 with 3 proposed; New Hampshire, 7; and Vermont, 6 with 2 proposed. From S Acrei The sites range in size from a 3-acre one in Cambridge, Mass., to a 1,724-acre one in Sturbridge, Mass. One at Stratford, Conn., has four buildings already erected at a cost of five million dollars. A 800-acre one at Sanford, Maine, boast* «n airport and an expan- sionable building. These examples in the East are eoJy a part of a general move, duplicated at least in, countless communities and most regions. SAME NUMBEB, SAME JOB SAYRE, Okk.
