Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa BIG GEORGE! by Wt'tl Partdi Tho Cedar Rapids Gazette: Frl., Feb. 8.    1874 Action Expected Next Week On Subsidized Housing Plan Members of the city council, urban renewal board and Oak Hill liaison committee met Thursday afternoon to discuss proposals for a federally-subsidized housing project, but delayed choosing among six proposals until next week. The group plans to meet again next Thursday to make a decision, after more opinions can be gathered from members of the liaison committee. Only two committee members — Viola Gibson and June Varner — were able to attend all three meetings at which the project was discussed this week. They differed on which proposal they favored. Mrs. Gibson ranked the proposal by J.K. Stewart Construction Co. of Kansas City first, while Mrs. Varner favored the proposal submitted by Oak Hill Manor, Ltd., Des Moines. Extreme Importance Hob Brooks, a member of the urban renewal board, said management of the proposed project is of extreme importance. The best such projects in the nation, he said, are found in small Iowa towns. “These things operate successfully because of the community involvement after the thing is built,” Brooks said. “That’s been one of our prime concerns,” Mrs. Varner said, “since the inception of the program.” 'lorn Kelly, also an urban renewal board mmebor, agreed. Local Participant “The local participant is the key here,” he said. “You have to have someone you can talk to.” The project, to be located on urban renewal land, will house low-income elderly and handicapped persons. The Federal Housing Administration (FUA) will pay a portion of the rent for the tenants, depending upon their income. Six developers bid for the right to build arid operate the project. Since all were required to bid the same price for the land, the decision on which to choose is to be based on matters such as the site plan, experience, financial backing and management ideas. The FUA reported Thursday all six bidders are in good financial positions, and all architectural concepts arc acceptable. The Consensus Although considerable time at the meeting was devoted to the specific attributes and drawbacks of the various proposals, the consensus was that the details are not as important in making the decision as is the overall site plan. FUA will have final authority on most details, anyway. Those present at the metting agreed to consider all six proposals primarily on their appearance in relation to the rest of the neighborhood and what overall effect the different configurations will have on the neighborhood over the long run. 30 YEA KS AGO - The U.S. renewed its warnings to Finland that it must make peace with Russia and Britain or face the consequences. “The moat leaks.” Courthouse I amount for the additional paper, [ about $15.
