The plan features a reduction from 14- foot right of ways on each side of the street to 6-foot right of ways. 8-feet less than a previous recommendation by the planning commission which was rejected by the Upland City Council at an earlier meeting The plan recommends a six-foot high decorative masonry wall to be placed at the edge of the rights of ways along Mountain Ave The wall, to be constructed with an angular pattern, could be either brick or some type of slump stone, to be determined by the architectural commission It would have elevation steps to take up the differential in grade between street grade and level wall sections The area between the curb and the wall, according to the planning department's recommendation, would be filled with a textured masonry finish, possibly cobblestone, brick or e cement. The plan also recommends a "relatively dense landscape treatment on the property side of the wall which would vary from three and one half feet to eight and one half feet because of the staggered shape of the wall Trees and shrubs, to act as a screen between Mountain traffic and would be planted and a sprinkler system installed by the developer of the property Homeowners would be required'to maintain the landscaping "The purpose we are trying to achieve with this plan is to provide an adequate screen between the private property and the roadway in a manner that will not lead to any significant continuing maintenance cost to the city and which will require as little additional right of way as the recommendation stated Gym program has a Mot going for it' By DON HAM The Upland Recreation Department's gymnastics program has a lot going for- According to instructor Jesse Staples, the program is one of the best in the area.

The six classes Staples teaches during the week now practice in the big room at the Magnolia Recreation Center, Upland Because of the lack of equipment- and quality equipment. Staples periodically takes his classes to gyms at Mt San Antonio College, Walnut and at La Verne College to work out. The ideal facility, according to Staples, would measure 100 feet by 100 feet, be 20 to 30 feet high and include restrooms. dressing rooms and eventually a shower and locker room, with wooden or padded cement floors, good lighting and ventilation, including heating and cooling systems The program currently has a vaulting horse, high balance beam, parallel bars and several mats. The equipment was the "worst" brand of equipment made and needed repairs eight months after it was purchased. Staples said It was equipment for beginners, not satisfactory for advanced lessons or competition. The new equipment would include a free-exercise mat two high balance beams, two floor practice balance beams, another vaulting horse, two sets of uneven bars (one a table model and another and floor mats in three different sizes "Those are the minimum for running the type of program we Staples said. "The big problem is that the city would lose the program if we can't get the facilities and the equipment." he said "The program would have to make a serious cutback, one way or ano- ther The program is divided in nine classifications of students, including beginning, age 5-10. beginning 11 and up. advanced beginning. 5-10. advanced beginning. 11 and up. intermediate. 5- 10. and intermediate 11 and up. all making up the lower classification of students. The Upper classification includes the C team, the B team and the A team Presently, some classifications are combined into larger, more difficult to handle classes because of the lack of equipment and room. Eventually. Staples hopes to have four instructors, instead of the current two, with a minimum of 20 students per class, two instructors per class His program, if it gets the needed space and equipment, will easily be full time. r The upper classification, A, B ana t teams, currently practice only 2 hours a day and the B's and C's. 1 hour and 15 minutes a day, in addition to shor workouts twice fa week at La Verne College I, To support competitive teams. Staples has projected the following needs for each class: A team six days i week at three to six hours a day. B team five days a week with a minimum of two hours per day, C team four days a week with a minimum of one, and one half hours per day or thtce Says a week with a minimum of two; hours per day. The proposed rieeds would increase the program to seven hour days, even without the lower classification classes, according to Staples Fees for each class, now ranging from to per month, will raise in the fall to according to Staples, be- cause of the increased class times.
