Panel opposes sorority's addition
The Ann Arbor Historic District
Commission voted 5-1 last night to deny
the Collegiate Sorosis Sorority's
request to build an addition to a house
on 903 Lincoln.
While the commission agreed that the
architectural design is in keeping with
the character of the existing house, the
long-range affects on the neighborhood
should be considered, members said.
"IF WE change the house to the
sorority's needs, I'm concerned that
people bringing in a family will not buy
a house in that neighborhood," said
Commission Member Allen
Adrienne Malley, a commission
member, said bringing 40 people into
the neighborhood "will change the
balance of the neighborhood."
The commission voted on the
proposal because the house is part of a
proposed historical district.
ON WEDNESDAY morning, the
city's Planning Commission voted 5-2 in
favor of the sorority's request to add
4,440-feet onto an existing building.
If you missed the first act, you can still catch the grand finale of the

IS NOW HIRING
The sorority must now go to the
zoning commission to resolve parking
facilities which are under dispute.
The sorority's request will go before
City Council on March 25. Council will
take into consideration the Historic
District Commission and Planning
Commission and the zoning com-
mission votes in reaching the final
decision, which will determine the fate
of the addition.
AT THE Planning Commission
meeting, area residents said there are
other problems with the addition. They
said the addition will double the size of
the existing house.
"It's strange that preserving the
structure means adding more than
twice the size of the original building,"
said neighbor Andrea Van Houweling.
A city zoning law says that a house
measuring less than 5000 feet can not be
expanded and used for group housing.
Although the Planning Commission
measured the house at 6000 feet, neigh-
bors say that city records show the
house to be only 3100 feet.
Area residents were also concerned
Lowell Peterson is the incumbent
candidate for the First Ward seat on
City Council. He was incorrectly iden-
tified in yesterday's Daily as the
Second Ward representative.
Watch for it in
about noise levels.
"We have been awakened in the
night. Who's going to make them stop
partying with each other?" resident
Mary Gibbard asked.
Currently, the sorority is renting the
Alpha Epsilon Pi house at 1620 Cam-
bridge. However, the fraternity wants
the house back in September.

THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO
BECOMING A NURSE IN THE ARMY
And they're both repre-
sented by the insignia you wear
as a member of the Army Nurse
Corps. The caduceus on the left
means you're part of a health care
system in which educational and
career advancement are the rule,
not the exception. The gold bar
on the right means you command respect as an Army officer..If you're
