City gets $200,000,
to develop park sites
Voters reject millage
By JOHN ADAMS
A $200,000 grant for the pur-
chase of park sites in the cam-
pus area has been approved by
the Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD).
Parks are tentatively planned
in four areas. The city will
match the federal funds with
$200,000 of its own, coming
from the 1971 Parks Bond Issue,
where the city set aside one mil-
lion dollars to match any fed-
eral funding for park develop-
The city had originally request-
ed $400,000 from HUD to ac-
quire parks in eight areas but
because of limited funds, HUD
chose to fund sites only in areas
where the median family in-
come was below the state med-
The Department of Parks and
Recreation has not decided on
specific park sites yet. T h e
parks will be up to a half an
acre in size and the city will be
responsible for their development
Areas receiving parks are
heavily populated which might
necessitate the acquisition of
buildings and the relocation of
families and businesses.

-one for the establishment of
a police force and the second for
a renewal of a garbage levy.
However, voters were much
more enthusiastic about the
prospect of a statewide lottery.
The 137-year-old constitutional
ban on lotteries will be removed
as a result of Tuesday's vote.
With 85 per cent of the vote
tallied the vote in favor of lift-
ing the ban on lotteries was
1,18,238 to 436.736.
The vote allowed the legisla-
ture to approve a lottery, which
will presumably be modeled
along the lines of the New
Jersey lottery, where a 50-cent
ticket can win as much as $50,-
000 in the weekly drawing.
At the same time, voters re-
jected a proposed constitutional
amendment-697,073 to 752,958
-that would have allowed legis-
lators to accept another office
