Meadowbrook Area Only Property Owned By Borough; Engineer Making Study Of Acreage; Welfare And Park Boards In Joint Meeting Tomorrow A joint meeting of the Board of u^ic Welfare and Board of Park Commissioners will be held tomorrow, according to Warden Harry 1- Carter, for the purpose of dls- cussing possible building sites for the proposed National Guard garage and armory. «J h » me f u "S Om e has not teen set as yet by the warden, as all members of the two boards have not been contacted. The two boards have jurtsd.'c- .ion over certain pieces of borough Property, and recommendation" must be made by the board, on their respective properties to the Board of Warden and Burgess-. transactlons m »y be com- Gtven Warning The CNG garage and artnorv issue is in a precarious positic." to Naugatuck. General Joseph 'Nolan of the state National Guard has warned the borough to take immediate action to obtain a cuit- ajble site if it desires the construe- tlon. The first proposed site, on prop- rty adjacent to Recreation Field wa.« rejected on the basis of Hood conditions of the Naugatuck rive- f>e!ng undesirable. Warden Carter, although favorable to the proposed building*, is not inclined to parting with borough own«d property In the vioio- ty of Meadowbrook Home Members of the park board say hev know of no suitable site con- Lrolled by the board, the only larg. pieces being the Tuttle propertv on Church street and Lewis park on Meadow street. Favor* Meadowbrook John H. Breen, park board "hairman, said he knows of no other place than the Meadowbrook Property, and said he believes there is sufficient land there to accommodate the guard buildings and * proposed high school William J. Stokes, another member. said that he docs not believe that the National Guard would be -nterested in building a garage ttrd armory on the Meadowbrook land. He said, "It Is my understanding that the guard does not favor l«nd which is not along a main highway." He expressed the opinion that the CNG has lost Interest in building in Naugatuck because of a statement by Atty. Joseph E Talbot at last week's Chamber of Commerce banquet that a garage on Riverside drive would disfigure the land. Mr. iStokes maintains that a garage and armory could easily have been built on the property adjoining the Recreation Field If the guard had desired to use the ,)ioperty. "Army engineers could have easily ovecome what little dangers might have arisen from floods," he said, and continued. "1 doubt that any other piec* of land in Naugatuck would be *c- coptable to the guard." General Nolan at the time he announced rejection of the Riverside drive land said the National Guard would be willing to inspect alternate sites for the buildings in Naugatuck. Warden Carter has instructed Borough Engineer Charles D. Curtiss to find maps, which will ascertain the amount of land in the Meadowbrook Home area. Mr. Curtiss said today that he will attempt to locate maps this afternoon. Officials are unable to say definitely how much land the borough owns in the Meadowbrook area. William H. Moody, park commissioner, said he knew of no other site than the Meadowbrook land, and Augustine Barbiero could offer no suggestions. Clarence H. Green was unavailable for comment.
