(AP Wirephoto) Apartment Complexes In Jeopardy By CLAUDETTE DUHOCHER Zoning interpretations which Jeopardize the proposed construc- tion of four large apartment com- plexes will be reviewed at a meeting of the Planning Board and'the Zoning Board of Adjust- ment, City Planner Fred D. Mc- Cutchen said today. McCutchen' said. the zoning diffi-' culties involve a literal interpre- tation of frontage requirement! by City Engineer 'James F.

Pressed by newsmen on what he meant by clarification, the governor said he. has two op- tions open. One, would be to propose an amendment'to the bill.' The other would be to let it go through as it is' and to enter, a so-called "Rider Bill" clarifying, it. The governor reported he couldn't say just which course his administration would because he will need more in- formation as to how the Senatt feels ajbout the measure. Peterson was asked whether he felt the attorney general was stepping into an area outside his concern. The governor replied that he didn't. He said the matter is "in the area of policy." He added, "We've been acting with that in said that he has the :best interests of the departments -in mind.

He said the tests will be com- pleted today. Potter said in part, "As the boiler capacity is greater- than the steam load being the plant, -some: steatri'must be dis- charged to the atmosphere to provide V full load test. "The expansion of a large quan- tity- of steam from 125 pounds per square inch -pressure to atmos- pheric causes a noise similar to that of' a Jet engine. The new. boiler is rated at pounds per. hour 6f 125 pounds .per steam, with a fuel consumption .of. .IS gallons per minute of No, 6-fuel oil."
