BUT THE CHANGE could ,

sharp curtailment on unitsj
could mean an equally sharp1
rise in rents, unless new high-
density development is begun.;
Katz admits the possibility that1
cutting off the supply of new
housing could have such an ef-
fect, but says 'the problem isj
not a zoning matter.
"The trouble with the hous-1
ing market in Ann Arbor is
that it's gotten out of touch!
with the ability of pople to pay.
That problem can be correct-
ed, but not through zoning; zon-;
ing doesn't address it."
The draft plan also includesI
measures to:1
" provide flexibility for al-
ternative life styles to single
families through creation of a
new "cluster dwelling" district;
0 limit the growth of large-
scale office buildings in resi-
dential areas by creating a new
professional business classifica-
tion which would allow small
professional uses (doctor's or
lawyer's offices) in such areas,
and,
* create four special down-+

of uses, lots of pedestrian ac-
tivity and good attention to ur-
ban design," said Katz. "Just
the kind of things the downtown
plan asked for."
The Planning Department will
bh publishing a map and ex-
planatory text about the pro-
nosals so-etime around May 1.
During the months of May and
June, said Katz, a set of'public
meetings and hearings will be
held on the draft revisions.
"I DON'T KNOW what kind
of reception this thing it going
to get," said Katz. "But we're
hoping for wide distribution and
a wide response from the cdm-
munitv."
During June and July, the
planning staff and a subcom-
mittee of the Planning Com-
mission will revise the propos-
al, incorporating citizen sug-
gestions into the revision, and
in September the new draft
should be presented to the Plan-
ning Commission.
"I'm not in love with it,"
Katz said of the proposal. "But
it's the result of a year and a
half of analysis and discussion;
it addresses the problems we
fo-d_ How well it does will
depend on how well we've been
informed about those prob-
lems."
TAKE CARE OF
WINTER TIRES
AKRON, Ohio (P) - Despite
their heavy, aggressive tread.
winter tires can't take any
more abuse than regular tires.
warns Goodyear.
For at least three full sea-
sons of wear, the tire com-
panv says:
-Maintain proper air pres-
sure and avoid road hazards.
Never mount bias or bias-
belted ' snow tires with radials
on the front. That produces bad
handling characteristics.
-To store, lay tires on their
sidewalls with white sidewalls
facing inward toward each oth-
er. Keep theri dry - away
from water, petroleum prod-
ucts, electric motors and ex-
cessive heat.
- If stored mounted on
wheels, reduce inflation to 12-
16 pounds.
