PA-O TIM'- EI I'aso's li'.niE NY n -paper Want Ad Dept. 5J2-1971 Page 9-A South El Paso Residents Meet Over Urban Renewal Question Alderman Hector Bencnmo, candidate f-r mavor. told pore thar; lift oersons Monday irght :r. the San Juan Civic Center that "as of now no one has been ab'.e to cor.vir.ce me that urban renewal will help anyone but industries' Urban renewal, scheduled for referendum in November, had been a po:n; of concern for residents of San Juan, Worn-b!e. Thomas Manor and Brentwood Heights areas who described their neighborhoods as "target areas" for the project. Residents expressed belief that urban renewal would result in their being deprived of their homes without adequate compensation. Oscar Fragaso. president of San Juan Civ:c Community, said the program would give the City power to purchase homes at tax value and resell them to industry. Tax value is low on the homes and would not provide adequately for relocation, he said. William H. Adams, director of the Community Renewal Program, said residents would get extended benefits from urban renewal. Ismael Rincnn. a San Juan edition resident who has been researching the project for the Civic Community, cited statistics which he said showed resui's of Urban Renewal to be undesireabie. Quoting from a book by J. Alien William Jr.. "The Effects of Urban Renewal on a Black Commumly," he said "18.7 per cent of former home owners have become tenants." Rincon then showed a report by the EI Puso CRP which contained results of a similar project relating to the Chami-zal relocation program. The report stated that both before and after the relocation project, 32 families resided in sub standard dwellings. He also showed a report in a publication of the National Association of Real Estate Boards which quoted Secretary of Housing and Urban Development George Romney as saying basic approaches to providing adequate housing f :r iOw-income families strict code enforcements, rehabilitation, and federal subsidies have had disappointing results. Adams said earlier Monday, "The city now has the power to carry out code enforcement, but the people would have to upgrade their residence without federal assistance." He said primary target of the NDP program was the second ward. If Urban Renewal is passed in November, he said, the San Juan area will not be affected for at least three years. Federal Payroll Checks Taken In Chamizal Offiee Burslciry s 'Wns Building Material Theft Charged Two Lower Valley men were arrested by police Tuesday night following the theft of a substantial quantity of building material from a new home under construction in the 1100 block of Lakewood. Juan Ramirez, a guard employed by Mobile Security Service, told police he County Officials Continue Court Docket Investigation County officials continued their investigation Tuesday into irregularities in the court docket books of Justice of the Peace Al Mestan. Mestan requested the stand-and $4 JP fee for each of the cases in the docket book. However, they drew sharp attention when .it was found he had apparently taken action in certain cases which were not in his jurisdiction as a JP. The request asked for payment of fees for examining trials which investigating officials say they suspect may never have been held. County Attorney George N. Rodriguez Jr. has directed County Auditor Willis Sample not to pay the fees on the cases in question which mum-ber, at this point more than 130. Although the docket sheets reflect judgments in felony cases of "guilty" or "not guilty," the JP has no authority to make that judgment. The focus of the investigation at this point has shifted to whether the examining trials listed were held at all. Many of the hearings, held on teh day of arrest without a defense attorney, have appeared not to mee' requirements of an examining trial, which allow a defendant a "reasonable and adequate" 'time to obtain a lawyer and prepare a defense. William Knapp Dies Tuesday William Harry Knapp, 61, of Balmorhea, Tex., died Tuesday in Pecos, Tex. after a lengthy illness. He was a resident and businessman in Balmorhea for 43 years and moved to El Paso where he was in business for six years prior to retirement.
