GH! Board Breaks Through Barricade
By Robert Philleo
At last Thursday’s regular meeting, the GHI Board instructed
the manager to take appropriate corrective action against an
arbitrarily erected chain link fence in the 26 court of Ridge.
Three families in the court had previously complained that the
ungated (mesh) fence blocked the rear yard walkway, the court’s
only formal access.
A separate motion (by Bill Helm) requested
the affected member, who was present, to take down the barrier
by August 11, with the board placing the present policy, on main-
taining unobstructed rear yard walkways, before the entire mem-
bership at the next opportunity. This was agreed to by the mem-
ber, and the motion passed by 5 to 3.
The member accused GHI of in-
equitable treatment, alleging that
many violations of present policy
on rear yard walkways are unde-
tected or tolerated. GHI manager,
Paul Campbell, acknowledged the
previously unknown violations,
which were discovered as a result of
a recent joint GHI-city study on
walkway jurisdictions. The study in-
volved on-site inspections of GHTI
walkways to determine those prin-
‘etpally used by the public, and
therefore city responsibility. The
formal results of the study are pos-
ted on two maps in the GHI mana-
ger’s office. One of the maps indi-
cates brick home yard lines, here-
The manager’s recommendation
for a tie-in walkway between pre-
sent public walkways near 26
Ridge and 4 Gardenway was ap-
proved pending petition to the city
to share costs on a 50-50 basis. The
manager was also directed to ex-
plore with court members the es-
tablishment of an aisle and walk-
way between the two courts. A mem-
ber with an unauthorized obstruc-
tion of the walkway at 3 Garden-
way was instructed to secure con-
sent of other court members. To
round out the discussion of walk-
way obstructions, the board una-
nimously reaffirmed the present pol-
icy prohibiting obstructions and di-
recting such obstructions shall be
A brief outline of activities sche-
duled during the month of October

birthday was discussed at a meet-
ing of the Silver Anniversary Com-
mittee last Wednesday. Highlights

Space Flight Center, and a Grand
Ball at the Armory. Foremost event
of the month, of course, will be

Other events and exhibits will al-

Land Use Problem
A request to purchase or lease
GHI land on Northway for a de-
tached home _ precipitated the
Board’s interest in re-examining
the GHI land use plans. The ab-
sence of criteria to evaluate the
single request before the board un-
derlined the need. for careful ex-
amination of all facets of land use.
A citation and an engraved ga-
vel and sounding block were pre-
sented to Edward Burgoon for his
service to GHI as president from
1955 to 1962. Board members paid
additional tribute to his outstand-
ing and exemplary public service.
The board officially accepted GHI
manager Paul Campbell’s resigna-
tion with regret. The News Re-
view’s editorial commemorating
Campbell was read into the min-
utes. The open house to recognize
Campbell will be held August 17,

Council Considers Bresler’s
Proposal for Joint Planning
by Sid Kastner : i
City council began its regular Monday night meeting at a lei--
surely pace, with the dry topic of insurance bids, and ended up with
a spirited discussion of whether a community should allow a de-
veloper to share in its planning responsibilities.
The exchange was prompted by
the subbmission of the Advisory
Planning Board's report on a pro-
posal, by the developer, Charles
Bresler, for the joint development
of a master plan. The proposal es-
sentially would provide for the pre-
paration of an over-all land use
plan and detailed parcel plans, at
an estimated cost of $8000, with
the city and developer sharing this
Reasons given by the board for
rejection of the proposal were that
some of the contemplated work has
already been carried out or is in
progress (by the board and the
Maryland National Capital Park and
Planning Commission) and that
joint financing of a master plan
could lead to conflict of. interest
on the part of the developer.
Police Rews Review
On Tuesday of last week, a resi-
dent called and complained of van-
dalism to his car, stating that tail
lights and antenna were missing
this time but that on previous o¢-
casions, other things have also been
taken from his car. This happens
in the area of 16 Ridge.
A resident of Southway called
police to investigate a possible case
of breaking and entering. Investi-
gation failed to show signs of ille-
gal entry into the house but tools
were found scattered inside and
the television set showed signs of
being tampered with.
A North End resident notified
police that her little girl had been
struck by a bicycle. Her head had
been cut, and she \was taken to
a doctor for treatment. The parents
of the child riding the bike were
contacted and they agreed to pay
the medical bill.
A case of littering at the end of
Ridge Road near the water tower
was reported last Wednesday. In-
vestigation of the debris turned
up an envelope with a resident’s
name on it. The person was con-
tacted and made to clean the area.
An off-duty Greenbelt policeman
spotted a car on the Parkway with
furniture being carried on top of it.
The furniture was burning. The
policeman went on to report the
fire but when the equipment arrived
on the scene, the car was gone. On
the side of the road rested the

asking for assistance because a
dog had gotten, his hind paw caught

of the Public Works Department,

a speeding car near the Center and

party did not wish to make any
charges and therefore the man was
A fourteen vear old girl was
questioned by police on charges by
a resident that the girl broke the
windshield of a car. The girl’s par-
ents agreed to pay the repair bill
so no further action was taken.
On Saturday, the owner of the
laundromat complained to police
that one of their machines had
been broken into and an undeter-
mined amount of money. stolen.
Birner Heads School
Rev. Edward H. Birner has ag-
ain been invited to be dean of the
Advanced Lutheran Service Volun-
teer School, this time at Huron
College in London, Ontario, Can-
ada, from August 19 through the
24th. He previously served in the
same capacity at Wilbraham Aca-
demy, Wilbraham, Massachusetts

Synod, and the Board for Young
Councilman Dave Champion
though he moved to accept the
board report, voiced strongly his.
opinion that the city might be over-
looking an excellent opportunity to
achieve effective planning by work-~
ing with the developer. He quoted
from the general plan of the MNC-
PPC to support his contention that
the report was vague in certain
respects and probably would not
be carried out for several years,
Clifford Simonson, speaking for
the board, expressed the view gi-
ven in the report that developer
participation would represent a con-
flict of interest, and also noted that
the developer-would not actually be
bound by the joint plan. Cham-
pion and Mayor Francis White re-
plied that they felt the developer’s
own interests would ensure compli-.
ance with sound planning.
Councilman Thomas Canning mo--
ved that the developer’s proposal be:
rejected, giving as his main reason
reluctance to commit taxpayers to
paying for any part of a private
development. However, Ben Gold-.
faden spoke against the motion,
saying that he was undecided and
felt it was better to wait and dis-
cuss the matter with the developer,
Canning thereupon moved to table
his motion, and the participants
agreed to continue the discussion
(Bditor’s note: After further dis-
cussion at the Tuesday meeting,
council again tabled the motion —
to the next regularly scheduled
Insurance bids’ on such city
items as workmen’s compensa-
tion and comprehensive liability
were awarded to Nationwide In-
surance Co., which submitted low
bids in five out of seven items. A.
H. Smith Co. had the low bid for
smooth seal road treatment, al-
though council members were kept:
busy with calculations before this;
fact was established.
Other forthcoming city expenses:
were detailed by city manager
Charles McDonald, who gave en-
gineering cost estimates for the
following capital improvement.
items: Greenhill Road completion -—
$700, Northway sidewalks — $150,
Northway widening - $150, Wood-
land Way paving and gutters - $475.
A request was made by W. Ste-
venson, on behalf of Lakeside resi-
dents, for $335 for garden mater-
ials to plant in Lakeview circle.
Council members felt, however, that
the Center mall had a higher prior-
ity at the present time, and on a
motion by Goldfaden authorized less
expensive seeding or sodding of
the circle instead.
A major item for discussion at
the Tuesday night meeting of coun-
cil was a job description for the
post of police chief. On a 3-2 vote,
council agreed on a set of qualifi-
cations which are detailed on a
classified advertisement on the next
