G. V. Jackish, 5312 \?in- <br />dsor Avenue and Mr. Richard M. Mast, 5305 Windsor Avenue, that this intersection <br />would be reworked at the time that Vernon Avenue is improved, but that, in the <br />meantime, it might be possible to widen the road somewhat so that a lefthand turn <br />lane could be installed, Mr. Hite noted that he does not believe that the twenty- <br />four proposed apartment units will generate an appreciable increase in traffic to <br />cause an additional hazard at that intersection. Mr. Grant North, 5300 Windsor <br />Avenue, protested that multiple dwellings are being constructed adjacent to single <br />family dwellings, whereupon Mr. Hite replied that multiple residence dwellings <br />should be relatively isolated from single family dwellings but still-not in an area <br />which would not be suitable for single family residence construction. In reply to <br />a statement of Mrs. Jackish that they were assured that the neighborhood would be <br />developed with" single family dwellings when they purchased their property four and <br />one-half years ago, Mayor Bredesen noted that while there were no plans for mul- . <br />tiple residence development at that time, changes often lead to a more desirable <br />type of area development. Mr. Ernest Hansen, 5612 Dale Avenue, and Mrs. M. C. <br />Lindboe, 5600 Dale Avenue, stated that they would favor the construction of the <br />proposed apartment building.
