Public Hearing Arranged’ for Ap- ril 14th When Details of New Scheme Will be Unfolded IF THE “PLANT” SHOULD SHUT DOWN IN ONE YEAR FROM NOW, ONE HALF OF THE HOUSES WOULD BE EMPTY IN THE OLD VILLAGE A co-operative plan for the develop- ment of the Buffalo river from the up per Lat-kawanna raiii'oad bridge. to which point the work has already been carried, to Seneca street, was laid before the council yesterday at- ternoon by Arthur W.

The most desirable line for this channel would be as direct II possible from this railroad bridge to the Seneca street bridge. This line would conform in but small part to the present channel and would leave the land as now subdivided in ‘most inc-onvenient sizes for the commercial use of the channel. With this straight- ened channel there would be but small parcels of land exclusive 0! that ownecl by the I‘it_\' above the Bailey ll\‘t‘llllE‘ bridge and such would not warrant the extra cost of the con- . struinun and nizuiitennnce of a bus-4 cull» bridge on Bailey avenue above the cost of a bridge. \Tins \ilililllE‘l czui. be modi within this territory so as to provide rnnsitlernble valuable water front- age on this new channel. but such rollld be accomplislierl only by tho. co-operation of the interested own- ers. The improvement of the chan- nel has progressed practically to this point and if it is to be continued ‘this season the channel lines should be do-' '- termined as soon as possible.\ There was a meeting of interested property-owners on .\‘lni't-11 33d. he states. and as a result of the meeting he thought it advisable to recommend to the council some ‘general plan or action which could be considered. He;-_,.. i-ecommenris that the channel be ex- tended easterly of the Lackan'nlma.~ railroad bridge at approximately right angles with Bailey avenue and thence in a direct line to the Seneca street bridge over the river. He re- commends also that th plan be sub- mitted to the property owners and that an answer be received from them within 30 days.
