Below, you will find an architects drawing of the new subdivision, showing the various proposed lots, playground and park area, streets, etc. For further details, read below. p-%^%^ SITE OF SUBDIVISION The site of the subdivision is a 22-acre tract of land owned by Louis J.

IMPROVEMENTS The following improvements will be offered and completed before any construction in the subdivision begins: (1) Sanitary and Storm Sewers; (2) Public Utilities; (3) Curb and Gutter; (4) Hard-surface streets. These projects will be undertaken and completed in the very near future. PARK & PLAYGROUND Two acres of the subdivision will be set aside for a park and playground area. It is hoped this area can be deeded to the city as a city park and the maintenance and upkeep of the area handled by the city. SIZE OF LOTS The lots, which will number between 60 and 70, will have approximately 70 to 100 feet frontage and will be 130 feet deep. The majority of the lots will be 90 and 100 foot widths (average town lot in Algona is 66 by 132 feet.) PRICE OF LOTS An exact price for these lots has not been determined as yet but will be available in the next few days. Every effort will be made to keep the cost of lots as low as possible and lower, if possible, than many city lots are now selling for. Only 15 or 20 lots in the west half will be offered at the present time. RESTRICTIONS Restriction convenanls will be included in titles to lots, requiring substantial homes, preventing older houses from being moved onto lots and preventing the erection of basement homes. The size of the lots and other restrictions will permit plenty of space between homes. All these restrictions are for the protection of the lot owners. MEETS FHA & 61 REQUIREMENTS Since the Federal Housing Association assisted in the formulation of these plans, they meet FHA and GI requirements to the fullest degree. This will prove extremely helpful in arranging financing, if needed. FOR FULL DETAILS WRITE OR CALL- PAUL M. SEELEY, Realtor I^ ¥ • y~V V T T"* f* 4 * *-t W . n. ^ PHONE 714 OR 48 ALGONA
