<br />Disctission was had wit; menbers of the Planning Commission conce&g 'the clari- fication of their reeomendation that developers dedicate five'percent of their .
<br />developaents for park atid playground purposes, 1-5P. Nichols summarized Commission's
<br />thoughts on this-namely, tbt dekication of the recommended f5ve percent of smU
<br />developments has been found to be more of 8 detriment than a heip to the park
<br />progran; that the purpose of the Cannnission's recommendation is to secure reasonably
<br />large playgrounds where possible;-that the Council can expect to receive very few
<br />useable lands through the dedication program, but that it is better to accept l*siab-
<br />marg2naln lands by dedication, with thought to future developnpt, than to have to
<br />condemn lands later; that the only way Council can expect to secye good land for
<br />park purposes is by purchase or condemnation. Developer Elickelsen suggested tht
<br />developers be required.to pay five percent of their purchase pkce of property
<br />developed, in order that Villags have funds for the purchase of'such lands as they
<br />desire bf park and playground development. h f
