City calls one week
bldg. permit freeze


Wednesday, January 26, 1972

In a special session Monday
night, City Council decided to
withhold all residential building
permits until Feb. 1.
Council members indicated that

procedure, charging that Clark
-Denied an open hearing;
-Denied the right to see the
evidence against her;
-Denied the right of confron-
tation, since none of her depart-
mental supervisors testified before
the hearing;
-Denied the right of cross ex-
amination; and
-Denied the right to investigate
what others in her job classifica-
tion were earning, as well as their
job-related background and experi-
ence, until 15 minutes after the
hearing began.
As a result of Edward's charges,
a new complaint appeal procedure
was drawn up by the Commission
for Women and the executive of-
ficers. The new procedure, used
only in cases of alleged discrimi-
nation, includes a three-member
arbitration board.
'In each case, the plaintiff and
defendant each choose one mem-
ber of the board and the third-
the impartial chairman-is chosen
by the other two members.
,In Clark's appeal law Prof. Rus-
sell Smith acts as chairman; busi-
ness Prof. Jack Stamm and en-
gineer Prof. Harold Harger repre-
sent the respective choice of Clark
and the University.
Following the final hearing, the
arbitration board will make a rec-
ommendation on the case and sub-
mit it to Fleming for a final deci-
sion. The common recommendation
of two members constitutes a ma-
jority; if none is agreed upon,
each member submits an individ-
ual recommendation to Fleming.

the freeze on permits could con-
tinue for months.
The decision was reached after
the council concluded that it
would take a week to determine
how a study of the city's growth
rate policy should be undertaken
and that such a study should be
The bipartisan subcommittee
which will meet this week to
draw up the study design is com-
posed of Democratic Mayor Rob-
ert Harris, Mayor Pro Tem
J a m e s Stephenson (R-Fourth
Ward), Councilman Richard
Hadler (R-Fourth Ward), Coun-
cilman Robert Faber (D-Second
Ward), City Administrator Guy
Larcom, Planning Department
Director Michael Prochaska, and
Planning Commission Chairman
Clinton Hewitt.
The purpose for the "freeze"
on development-which is very
likely to be extended in some
f o r m beyond the expiration
dates-is to allow time (an es-
timated four months) for an in
depth study of the rate of growth
policy,tthe means of achieving
it, and the contributions a de-
veloper should make to the city
and school board.
Harris cited as needs for Ann
Arbor's growth rate to be curb-
ed limited public resources for
road bond issues, and the fact
that schools cannot pass their
bond issues.
However, Harris admitted that
there are also reasons why it
could be detrimental to "cramp
Ann Arbor's rate of growth."
He cited the creation of unem-
ployment, an increase in the
price of housing, and the ques-
tion as to what the economic
consequences concerning in-
comes and wealths would be.
Harris further commented that
"unless people loosen up their
hold on tax dollars (which he
says he seriously doubts) then a
lid must be put on the growth
rate;"sthe annexation process
must be controlled.

However, he was countered by
some longtime critics of the war,
including Sen. George McGovern
(D-S.D.), a Democratic presidential
contender who said he does not
think the Nixon formula will work.
Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark.),
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee, said the pro-
posal appears "fair to Western
eyes," but probably seems unfair
to the North Vietnamese.
"I think there is very little hope
of it being accepted," he said. "I
believe I would go further than
the President. I think we're going
to have to do more . . . to make
the North Vietnamese respond."
Fulbright continued, "For us to
