The area is located south of East McGregor street and east of South Hale street, and is owned by Frank J. Cunningham and Louis J. Ferstl. Approximately in the center of the plot will be a two acre park, which would be established as a city project, with city upkeep. Exact price of the lots is noi known, but Seeley stated he thought the cost might run in the $1500 - $2000 neighborhood. Practically all the lots will be about 90 feet wide and 130 feet deep, larger than normal city footage, and curb and gutter, sewers, public utilities and blacktopped streets will come with the package. No minimum price range has been placed on homes that might be built in the subdivision, but Seeley estimated $12,000 might be the bottom. It is thought this would prevent older homes from being moved into the area, and would eliminate the possibility of basement homes.
