MucTTof iirifiejrcTaim, has been, eaten away by a "shopping center cancer" and restoration of its business 'vitality is beyond hope, v Those with large in• vestments in Waterloo's downtown area ha've been worrying for years about its decline. Now, as evidenced at a public meeting here 'Friday -iright,rtlrey~'STe~ speaking In desperate terms. Waterloo's problem is not unique. The case here, however, may be the most serious in Iowa. The downtown business district here is" split by the Cedar River. Department Stores For years, the"section on the west side of the river commanded the bulk of the city's department store trade. Now, however, all three major west- s i d e department stores — Sears, Penney's and Montgomery Ward — all have left for the shopping centers. •The Waterloo-Cedar Falls metropolitan area can now boast of two of the state's newest and i most modern shopping centers. I Both the College Square Cen- I ler in Cedar Falls and the | Cross Roads in Waterloo are 50- store complexes, built around enclosed, climatized walls. Small shops on the downtown's west side had always depended on the three big stores to bring the customers to the area. Now that the stores have left, so have the customers and so have some of the smaller stores. Others plan to leave soon.

The Columbia Eagle captain, Donald A. Swann, told a newsman by marine telephone Sunday that the whole experience had been incredible.

At .Friday night's public meeting, attended by 300 persons, a recent "downtown Waterloo redevelopment study" was unveiled. 0 It was prepared by Jack Melt zer, director 9f the University of Chicago Center for Urban Studies, under contract with,the city of Waterloo and a down town development commltteee. West-Side The study recommends thai the west-side downtown area be written off as a shopping district, with commercal inter est becoming completely cen tered on the east side, along with the city's "governmenta complex."
