Shopping Center Would Cost Taxpayer: Economist The probable cost to the average taxpayer of the pro- posed new west side shopping center was outlined Friday af- ternoon by an economist who is a member of a volunteer group organized this week, "Tax- payers for Sensible Members of the group, includ- ing L. W. Van Nostrand, chair- man, conferred with members of the board of directors of the Cedar Rapids-Marion Area Chamber of Commerce. The board also heard a report from William Fletcher, chair- man of the mayor's committee to make a feasibility study about the community center proposed for downtown Cedar Rapids with the aid of some private financing. Report May 15 Fletcher, who told the board that the center should be in the jf black within a year on operating expenses, said the committee hoped to make a final report to the city council by May 15. Van Nostrand explained to the jboard that the Taxpayers for (Sensible Planning was or- ganized by a group which is concerned about the economic, ecological and taxpayer costs in the proposed center, which would represent new retail area equivalent to 40 percent of the entire retail area now, including Lindale Plaza, Sixteenth ave- nue, downtown and other outly- ing shopping areas. Important Decision This is one of the most im- portant decisions the city coun- cil will be making in terms of the effect on the community in the Van Nostrand said.

Sixth Person Is Arrested in Hunter Breakin A 23-year-old man was charged Friday with the break- in of the residence to become the sixth person arrested in the case. Robert Cage, 23, of 710 Ninth j avenue SE, was taken to the county jail in lieu of bond on a charge of breaking and en- tering. The other five defendants are juveniles, two boys 16, one boy 15 and two girls ages 14 and 16. They were charged with the in- cident earlier this week. The breakin occurred Monday at the residence of C.F. "Bud" Hunter, 1132 Twenty-first street SE. Four shotguns, two rifles and a pistol valued at were among items taken. Hunter also reported a movie camera valued at a calcu- lator valued at and two snives valued at were mis- sing. Police said none of the miss- ng items have been recovered. tual dollar cost to the average taxpayer. He cited two major factors: First, the need for street wid- ening and improvement in the area and the installation of ex- I tensive sewers to handle the run-off will be among the costs borne by all taxpayers; and, secondly, the potential drastic decrease in the downtown as- sessed valuation will need to be made up through increased levy on all taxpayers. Waterloo Example "You need to look only as far as Waterloo to recognize this is a very real Dr. Chap- man said. Within a short time after the opening of a major shopping center in Waterloo (which is about two-thirds the size of the one proposed in Cedar the assessed valuation in Waterloo dropped from million to S5 million.
