force woulc be required Morse launched his lengthy attack on US military actions and policy in Viet Nam as the Senate moved toward the cli max of its debate on the meas ure to authorize additional funds for military operations He was laying groundwork for a move to tie onto the bill a pro vision rescinding the 1964 reso lution that gave President John son a blank check to carry on what Morse

for Mason City has received informal approval by the regional administrator in charge of federal urbanrenewal a id Except for two minor changes a draft copy of the citys Workable Plan for Community Improvement is acceptable for processing John P Mc Collum regional administrator for the Chicago office of the Department of Housing and Ur ban Development informed Ma son City officials While the workable program does not commit the city to any type of federal aid such as urban renewal approval or certification is necessary be fore the city can make ap plication Approval for formally sub mitting the actual workable pro gram must he given by the City Council The matter is ex pected to be discussed at the March 7 meeting The Mason City Planning and Zoning Commission Thursday night accepted the draft copy and has recommended thecoun cil consider it for submission lo federal agencies City Engineer Don Boell who prepared the workable program said that if the council does not make too many changes he ex pects federal approval of the workable program to come quickly after formal application After the program is certi fied the city is eligible to make application for programs such as urban renewal Federal per sonnel then would make a spot check to determine whether the city qualifies A detailed study by a pro fessional consulting firm would follow Most of the workable program deals with a review of city pro grams in seven areas Codes and ordinances comprehensive community plan neighborhood analyses administrative organ ization financing housing for displaced families and ciiien participation Because Mason City recently com pleted a comprehensive plan and now is working on a companion zoning ordinance the city already meets most of the requirements established in the workable program One of the main areas pos sibly the most controversial is the adoption of a housing code Mason City has established a tentative adoption date of June 1967 The housing code sets up standards for existing housing It would give the city power to force owners of substandard housing to comply with mini mum standards in areas such as sanitary facilities wiring and structure The reason cities are required to adopt the workable program federal officials say is to make sure planning continues for the overall community after federal aid for a certain area is re ceived One federal official has ex plained to Mason Cityans that prior to the establishment of the workable plan requirement some cities receiving urban re newal aid were using that por tion of the city as a show case and were paying little at tention to development in other areas One of the areas which has received informal council ap proval is the declaration of PLAN Please Turn to Page 2 400
