Horn read from "The Bard" which was sent out with the improvement notice, <br />noting that the Vooddale Neighborhood Council f'supports the general replacement <br />of the curbs throughout the Country Club area to avoid the increased cost of <br />alternative approaches and to expeditg the benefits of the projact". <br />advised that the Vooddale Neighborhood Council supported the ''principle that <br />alternate methods be used on streets where tree damage is potentially heavy, <br />i.e. Edgebrook, West Sunnyside and Moorland, as determined by a majority of <br />of the residents on these streets. The proviso on this support is that the <br />entire street be treated with the same method." <br />to future utility installations, Mr. Dunn said that all water lines which had <br />not been previously replaced would now be replaced from the main in the street <br />to a point behind the curb where the shut-off is located. Mr. Horn recalled <br />that he had received nineteen calls supporting the proposal of the t7ooddale <br />Neighborhood Council, five calls opposed to the overall curb project and three <br />calls which stated a moderate position. <br />from officers of the Wooddale Neighborhood Council or from block workers. <br />cussion ensued as to the particular methods which would be used for curb install- <br />ation where trees might be saved. tlr. James Rubin, 4619 Moorland Ave., objected <br />to the improvement on the grounds that his assessment would lje $2,800 and that <br />his curb is still in good condition. Mayor Bredesen advised Mr. Rubin that he <br />believes that his curbing runs from 'aadequatet* to 'every and that he was <br />sure that Nr. Rubin would not lilce his curbing to be patched. Nr. Thomas Har- <br />mon questioned what would be done if the Gas Company lines should need to be <br />replaced. Mr. Dunn said that the Gas Company would be notified of the pro- <br />posed improvement and that the improvement would be held up if they felt it <br />necessary to replace their pipes. <br />Ralph Tully, 4619 Bruce Ave., objected to the proposed lmprovement and the <br />grounds that there is not a need at this time and that the engineering and <br />clerical costs are too high.
