a subenm-mittae CITY ZONING BOARD REJECTS TRAILER PARK fContinued from Page One year in the city. He said this was based on inquiries in both West and East Coast cities. Among those endorsing the request request was Harry McWhorter, city councilman from the ward in which the site is located. Mr. McWhorter, McWhorter, a realtor, said he had sold the property to the Greshams without knowing of their plans for a trailer camp. After learning of the proposed proposed development, Mr. McWhorter said he had investigated well-run well-run well-run parks in other cities and asserted: "I want my position known. I favor the establishment of a trailer camp in that location run by the Greshams. If it was somebody else I might not favor it but I know they will not allow anything objectionable." Among those speaking in behalf of a modern trailer park although for the most part not involving themselves in the controversy over location were Roger Ford, W. B. Seabrook, Barney Daniels, George Crawford, E. M, Magaha and Dr. Watson Walden. Objections Given In voicing objections to the park, Dave Ireland, Maurice Flynn and others who said they either lived on Linhart avenue or planned to build there, said they agreed that the city had need for a trailer park but objected to its location near their homes. They held it would depreciate value of adjoining property property for home purposes and would attract undesirable businesses to the neigmborhood. It was suggested suggested that a location equally as good or better could be found in a non-restricted non-restricted non-restricted zone. Mr. McWhotrer answered that be had looked for other sites for the development since he found that Linhart residents were objecting objecting to the proposed park but had been unable to find any. To the contention that the park would lower value of other property, Mr. Gresham answered that he beauti-fication beauti-fication beauti-fication he planned "couldn't possibly" possibly" detract from the value of surrounding surrounding property. In fact, he added, his property would look better than other improved properties properties in the section. Among others protesting either by letter or from the floor were Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Stevenson, Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Kinzie, Alice McCann, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Anderson, Anderson, A. L.
