The study area includes a fall of Anderson township North of or 32 and South of the Little Miami River As Well As that portion of Seminary plagued by recent vandalism vandalism has become a serious problem at St. Gregory Seminary after several incidents of bothersome mischief. The Rev. Francis vol Menke Rector of St. Gregory said All four tires on four cars and one tire on a fifth were punctured in the Seminary parking lot Early tuesday morning. The incident was the most serious since the beginning of a string of vandalism last thanksgiving. The Seminary is scheduled to be closed As an academic institution after the completion of this academic year due to rising Cost and declining enrolment. Before the tire slashing vol Menke said vandals entered the Seminary on Beechmont Avenue at Burney caused minor damage and stole Small amounts of food. The first incident he said was thanksgiving morning when vandals entered the Seminary and discharged a fire extinguisher and entered the administration office. A they did no to steal anything a a vol Menke said a even though they got into the office and the the next time vandals broke into the huge building was around Christmas time last year when ornaments from a Large Christmas tree were smashed. Vol Menke said the vandals seem to strike near vacation times. A whoever it is seems to know our schedule around Here. It seems to happen when Only a few people Are Here a he said. A that seems to indicate it May be the same people. A More recently vol Menke said on March 28, vandals also discharged a fire extinguisher about 2 . Students chased the vandals then heard voices later and found that the Kitchen had been entered again and food had been thrown around the room. All the incidents had been reported to the Cincinnati police he said but until tuesday the vandalism was a mostly dumb minor vol Menke said he returned to the Seminary about 12 15 . Tuesday got out of his car and heard the hissing of air escaping from tires of a car in an adjacent parking space. A after i figured out what the sound was i checked the other cars a he said. A when i found out later that at the same time some students chased some people off the grounds i figured i probably interrupted them in the process of slashing the a. Tuesday morning the vandals also entered the Kitchen again vol Menke said and a Freezer was left open to allow ice Cream to melt. Since the recent plague of vandalism students and staff have become More aware and suspicious of strangers on the grounds he said in addition to a stepped up patrol by police of the Seminary grounds. The Village of Newtown subject to flooding according to information currently Michael Cristiani planner from the Hamilton county regional planning commission attended the meeting to discuss the study with the pc and interested citizens. Cristiani said however that the discussion at the meeting was not As extensive As was expected. Cristiani said he intended to bring maps of existing land use and zoning for the comparison with the proposed plan. Since the county planning commission lost a Large portion of its graphics staff he said he was not Able to have the maps completed for the tuesday meeting. A there was some discussion about whether we could meaningfully discuss the study without the maps a Cristiani said. A i thought there might be some people at the meeting who would like to hear the presentation i had prepared instead of coming Back another time. I gave my presentation and stuck pretty close to the text of the after his presentation Cristiani said the discussion which ensued entered on use and preservation of agricultural land and use of Industrial land for both heavy and Light industries. Some of the discussion Cristiani said concerned uses and zoning of floodplain areas in the study Vicinity. All land uses in the floodplain area according to the study should be carefully considered in View of the county a participation in the National flood insurance program. The discussion about the floodplain also concerned mining especially gravel mining. The study recommends a extraction uses should be subject to very critical review to insure a minimum of visual and ground water pollution within the River corridor. A in addition the study says a gravel mining should be treated As an interim land use to be followed by beneficial some discussion at the tuesday meeting also concerned recommendations about Industrial uses including changing some areas zoned As heavy Industry to Light Industry Cristiani said. The difference Between a heavy and Light Industry he said depends on the amount of noxious materials it produces. The study recommends that Light Industry use be emphasized in the study area. After the study was published Cristiani said the township trustees asked the planning commission to go ahead with implementation after the beginning of 1980. The meeting with to be pc was part of the implementation process for the study and Cristiani said he believes he will attend the pc meeting next month with present land use maps to further discuss the study. The Northern tier study will probably be part of a new comprehensive plan for the area which the planning commission will soon prepare for the entire township Cristiani said.
