Mr. Newkirk said that lots 38, 2-8, 10-16, 18-24 and 16-32 are to be zoned R-1. Lots 1, 9, 17, 25, 33-38 are to be zoned R-4. It shows an extension of Douglas to the East. Timer Drive West goes to the South which would eventually tie into over-all plan. They are looking at a donation of a piece of property to the Park District for access to the East side of Ol'Timers Park. They plan on a two-phase project. Phase I would include developing Lots 1-16 and 33-35. Phase II would include Lots 17-32 and 36-38. Both phases will come in as one whole plat. All lots are essentially the same size, with the corner lots a little larger (100x175). This plan is basically a duplication of the 11th Addition. They are selling R-4 lots 1, 9, 17 and 25 aa duplexes, not as apart¬ ments because they do not feel apartments would be appropriate there along Algonquin Road.

It invites the public to join in making this life saving contribution a success. Basic qualifications require that donors be in good health, between the ages of 17 and 65, weigh 110 pounds or more, and have not donated blood within the past eight weeks. A more detailed screening of donors is conducted by staff prior to giving blood. Blood is provided for all residents of the region served by the Aurora Area Blood Bank without regard for the ability to pay or donate and without obligation to replace any blood used. Upon request, blood will also be provided for any relatives of area residents needing blood in any hospital in the United States. For those concerned about Aids and blood donations, medical staff emphasize there is no way of contracting Aids from giving blood. Any impression of a danger of exposure to Aids from donating blood is entirely wrong. Your chairman. May Chesak, is looking forward to a good turnout. Blood is badly needed at the 25 participating hospitals. Mayor Dhamer said that Village Engineer Schwegel is on vacation and that a letter of approval is pending on Bakley's 12th Addition. Mr. Schachtner said that he believes according to Code Book (page 93, 7B) Neville will have to blacktop "any¬ thing over 5 stalls", otherwise he would have to apply for a variance.
