Very great source of pleasure. Elimination of the City Hall eyesore which has served by its very appearance to stamp the downtown business District As outmoded and antiquated will undoubtedly serve to give the business District a tremendous uplift and ii some excellent business concern should see fit to locate on the Corner the advantage would be too obvious to need further comment Here. This Call for bids Means that probably within a year or less the Basic unit at least of an Arcadia civic Center which we All Hope will be the Pride of the Community and a show place of the Valley will Rise on the Beautiful 12-acre plot recently purchased on Huntington drive just beyond the Pony express museum. Hardly five years ago the Council was offered the then handsome Price of $30,000 for the City Hall property by interested local real estate men. Their Wisdom in refusing this offer is graphically demonstrated by the fact that the present Call for bids stipulates a bid of not less than $80,000 and presupposes a possible bid in the neighbourhood of $100,000�?more than enough to build the first unit of our civic Center. City councilmen have indicated their intention to push this project to completion As rapidly As possible. Add to it the assured development of excellent shopping facilities in West Arcadia and the Village and the future of Arcadia acquires beyond question a Rosy Hue.
