THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland i, urn Urbana Civic Association Proposes New Regulations In aflUpfratVMi o f a meeting to U held by the Frederick County Planning and Zoning Commission this coning Thursday, the " · Civic Association has matted proposed new trailer paries regulations to the planning and aoning commissioners* * The new, proposed regulation takes trailer parks out of agriculture, (A-l) districts and sets them up as a separate district br qualification in the zoning code, In addition, the proposed regulation would only allow trailer parks in areas in which ·school, fire, and police protection jras deemed to be adequate to handle the increased population generated by the mobile home park. - The attorney for the Urbana Civic Association, Herb Morrison, said, "The adoption of this proposed regulation would re- quire developers to place rezoning notices on their property, advertiseitinthenewspap«rs, and have public bearing on the subject Under the present regulation a developer is not required to do any of these things and the approval of the site is solely up to the planning and zoning commission and the county commissioners." 'V this new regulation, or a similar one, is approved,'* said Morrison, "A developer would have to show that there was a change in the make-up of the area in question which would warrant the increased population caused by the placing of a mobile home park in the area. It would also give the local residents much more right to be heard on the subject" "The Urbana Civic Association has become very expert on the subject of mobile home parks since it has been opposing the placement of a park near Urbana since April of 1969," Morrison said, and is presently taking the battle to the Mmry- lafld State Court of Appeals. The civic association is in hope that the planning commission and the county commissioners will change the regulations in such a way to end their battle with the Urbana area developers. The mobile home site proposed for Urbana would incorporate 1,340 trailers on a 214- tract of land at Centerville. Marion Lawson, president of the civic association said, "We believe that any new regulations passed by the planning commission should be made in such a way as to eliminate the present danger to the residents of Urbana from a trailer park which would crowd our schools and over populate our countryside. Supporting Services Employes To Vote - By WILLIAM GRAFFAM - Montgomery Bureau Chief - ROCKVILLE -- Climaxing a dispute over cost-of-living pay increase, the supporting services employes of the Montgomery County Public School system Developer Raps Town Cpuncilmen .-:"- By MARGOT MOB · : Staff Writer 4|jiDDLETOWN -- Joseph DeCaro, developer of Jefferson Village Townhouses here, accused 'th town fathers of speaking with forked tongues at a town council meeting last night. In a display of histrionics which equalled if it did not exceed Ms frustration at delays in his project, he bitterly complained, "Pve been shoved around beyond any endurance." DeCaro claimed he presented his 'proposed townhouse development to the town council in March, 1968, before planning and zoning and subdivision ordinances had been adopted by Middletown. He did so, DeCaro said, because he felt it was the honorable thing to do and he wanted to establish a rapport between .himself and the community. Q He had already been assured by his bankers that the necessary financing was available to him. Shortly thereafter, however, his bankers advised him that his project had not been approved by planning and zoning. He then faced a number of obstacles, culminating in the tight money situation. ' Harold Kefauver, chairman of the Middletown Planning and Zoning Commission, emphasized the necessity for provision of curbs, ·gutters, and sub-base for roadway? to warrant approval of De- Car o's Plat No. 3. DeCaro focused his invective at Kefauver-"you are a sick man." , Burgess Floyd Stine poured water on the troubled waters by stating that perhaps the town must share its part of the responsibility for a dual misunderstanding, since they had not required DeCaro to conform with the same standards which previous builders had to meet prior to building dwelling units. ' The town council later met in closed session to determine how best to proceed with the DeCaro dilemma. (Need An Electrician? Need Immediate (i Servicet Call Brandenburg : 6624)144 Mr M* W. Prtrttk Frtttrtck, MA Dispatched Tracks will go to the polls June 17 to choose an exclusive representative to bargain with the joard of education. The choice will be between: a council of AFL-CIO unions; a council of employe associations; or no representation. In the costHof-living pay increase dispute that began the last week in April, the board had approved a 4.1 percent increase in its budget request, the county council upped this to 5 percent but provided no additional funds. The school board claimed this put them nearly a quarter-of-a- million dollars behind the financial eight-ball. Amid threats by some employes of a strike, presidents of the seven supporting services associations negotiated with school officials for more than a week to solve the pay crisis. As part of the recommended solution May 12, the board agreed to recognize a council of supporting service employes to negotiate in the future, "regarding salary and other working conditions, for input into the budget" A union group that had been attempting to secure recognition to bargain for cutodlans announced its intention to form a AFL-CIO council to represent all supporting services employes and called for an election. After several weeks of negotiation between the employe associations, the union officials and school officials, the election agreement has been worked out. Ten percent of the employes must request that an organization be placed on the ballot and the American Arbitration Association will be employed to verify this fact, and then to supervise the election. Nineteen school buses will be used as mobile polling places on two runs on June 17, one day before the end of the school year. The majority of employes will vote between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. when the polling place bus stops at their school or work location. An additional bus run that evening will permit custodians and a few night maintenance employes to register their choices. Aboard each school bus will be an AAA representative, and an observer from each of the competing organizations. The AAA will count the votes and if more than 50 percent of the employes eligible to vote in the election choose one of the organizations, the school board will recognize that organization as the exclusive representative of all of the supporting services employes. If none of the three alternatives gets 50 percent of the eligible vote, a run-off will be held between the two that receive the highest number of votes. The costs of the election process will be split between the school system and the two competing employe groups, with the schools picking up the tab on the school bus-polling place costs. Nearly 4,000 employes will be eligible to vote in the election. Hood Will Remain A Woman's College MAYOR, PRINCESS TOAST DAIRY MONTH With milk, that is!

The action taken by the trustees means that Hood will remain a woman's college, but the legal barrier to taking some steps toward coeducation has been removed in case the college should decide to admit men at a later date. Commenting on the vote, Dr. Handle Elliott, presidentcrf Hood; state, "After a year of careful study and investigation, we believe that the decision to remain a woman's college represents a wise and prudent course of action at this tune, m our judgment the woman's college has an important role to perform in higher education. "Even in a period of increasing social emphasis on coeducation, continuing effort should be made to maintain an established institution that provides an op- portunity for those who prefer to attend a single-sex college for women. This special type of college supports certain intangible values which receive only token recognition, or which tend to be forgotten in a coe3 environment. "Hood will continue its emphasis on the enrollment of highly qualified women who possess the potential for creativity and leadership."
