Jacobs is now asking that the area be approved under a Community unit plan which Means no zone change is involved and that the density of the development would be no greater than if single family Homes were built there instead. His request has been approved by the regional planning commission and the Rural zoning Board but opposed by the homeowners and the Madeira Council and planning commission. Basically the residents say they do not want apartments in the area under any circumstances a a it a a bedroom Community and. Wed like to keep it that Way a says.

Clean up time in Madeira april 22 week of april declared clean a City building style to be contemporary construction is expected to Start Early in May on a new contemporary style municipal building to be built on Cooper re. In Blue Ash. Style facility Over a expensive colonial Council passed a motion of intent to award a contract to the Amherst construction company and the engineering firm of Smith shilling Balke and Robinson at a special meeting thursday the building will Cost $636,000, $64,000 less than the City had budgeted for the project. Council chose a contemporary less e design at the recommendation of City manager Vic Suhm. Who said a contemporary style would be More compatible with surrounding architecture More functional More adaptable in terms of total site development and More distinctive. A Blue Ash desperately needs a new municipal building but it needs one that is compatible with its own Community character a Suhm said a rather than one which More appropriately belongs in a predominately residential Community trying to imitate the grand design and architectural character of Early America. A compatibility with the pre engineered fire House and with future recreation facilities and Community buildings anticipated on this site is much greater with the contemporary design than the colonial design a he said. Residents were earlier asked to rate designs submitted by seven companies. Preliminary tabulation of results showed other companies besides Amherst rated first in Peoples minds before and after they knew Cost Ligues on the projects. _ Suhm said however that the preliminary results were incomplete and inaccurate and should be discounted. A closer look at the evaluations he says shows that the Amherst design rated second when people did not know the Cost and first when the Cost was made known. A Tesij Ai n Eyer submitted by cd a came in first when costs were unknown and second when costs were known. A the City administration and the construction management team does not find additional value or Quality in proposal no. 6 al never in proportion to the extra Cost of the proposal a Suhm said in a report to Council. A in simple terms we do not find the Neyer proposal to be Worth to the City $37,-136 to $96,563 More than the Amherst proposal.
