The Milton district, set for C-2 commercial usage, borders both side* of Milton road from Oakland avenue, a block south of Brown street, southward to Lincoln. Zoning districts over the entire dty, an a result of last night's action, become effective as soon as publication by an amended zoning map ia effected. Two zoning ordinances were enacted. One extends district zoning Inspect Trees in Cleveland Members of Alton Park Commission saw all sizes of trees used in "street" planting at Cleveland, Ohio, Wednesday — according to requirements of the surroundings. The commissioners flew to Cleveland in the private plane of their newest member, Herbert Hellrung. The visit provided them a chance to tour a portion of the big dty with Edward Scanlon, urban tree planting specialist who spent two days in Alton recently discussing his subject with groups here. He has charge of a program in Cleveland which aims to match the street tree planting with the surrounding requirements and reduce interference with wires, street lights, sidewalks, homes, and other factors. During this public discussions of the problem here. Scanlon stressed smaller tailored trees in tight situations. Dr. Gordon F. Moore, chairman of the Alton park board, pointed out today this was because the development of these smaller trees was the new information needed to assist Alton. "Mr. Scanlon did not mean to eliminate forest trees and he likes them very much," commented Dr. Moore. "He has many planted under his program in Cleveland, but the planting is in spota adapted to them. "Most of these spots where the larger forest trees are planted are located in new subdivisions where utility wires and other interfering elements and located away from the streets and space remains for the large trees." Accompanying Dr. Moore on the tour besides park board members Hellrung and Dr. Robert Elliott was Edward Foeller, Alton district manager for the Union Electric Co. In Cleveland the expense of surveying the city and evolving a recommended tree planting program was financed by the power company. to arejs so recently annexed they couldn't be included in the original zoning pYogram. The other makes two amendments to the text of the ordinance, chief of which is to make the City Plan Commission the hearing body for any future changes in either zoning classifications or in zoning regulations in the ordinance text. Amendment* Approved Several amendments as to business site usages in Milton area were approved by the Council members, as a committee, after a final public hearing on zoning ordinance and map amendments last Monday night.
