Three Omaha . Delegates Are at Ni

tar Establish CdubImIoi . 4o
Look After City Plan
las. .. '. :..
Action probably will be taken by th
Heal Estate exchange at the meeting
Wednesday upon the report submitted at
the last meeting by the city planning
In the report some radical changes are
suggested, which probably will take some
time for Omaha realty men to decide
upon.. The committee, however, was
unanimous in Its opinion. The report foU
. lows: x,1 ; ,y. v . ,
We are unanimous in the opinion that
corrections should be made through the
legislature for the following requirements
and restrictions in the platting of addl.
tlons: , - , ..
The first step toward the proper plat
ting would be the appointing by the leg
jslature of a city planning commission,
This commission to be composed of not
less than five nor more than nine, and
. the members of this commission should
be men of large real estate holdings in
or adjacent to Omaha, and that they
ould serve on said commission with
out remuneration of any - nature. That
thls commission should work out and
adopt a general city plan for the future
Omaha and that all new additions should
be platted and laid out along the lines
of this general plan and streets should
"be of the width and in the direction to
follow out a general plan to-the best ad
Second We find that no plat can be
accepted by the city If there is a blanket
mortgage against the land, unless the
holder of said mortgage joins in said
plat and dedication.
Third We believe that all grades for
all streets and alleys should be estab
lished by the city engineering department
according to the adopted plan of the
city planning commission and should be
brought to this established grade before
the plat la accepted and approved by the
. city. .... -- - ,
Fourth Restrictions: Whenever a party
platting wishes to place restrictions upon
an addition, these restrictions should be
incorporated in the plat and dedication
and the building inspector should then
have .the power to see that all restric
tions are fully carried out in the erec
tion of buildings upon said additions and
his office should issue no permits for any
Improvement unless all the requirements
are fully carried out-
Fifth Trees: All trees set out on the
streets of the City of Omaha to be set
out and designated and' under instruc-
;. tions from the park commission. We
would also suggest the employment by
the park -commission of a city forester,
whose duties -t should be to see that the
proper, varieties are properly set out, so
as to live and in such manner that they
wilh carry out the ideas of 'the park
commission. Each year in the city there
are ' thousands of dollars lost by poor
i trees and trees being Improperly planted,
whereby the Inspection of a city for
ester would save this to property owners.'-
Sixth Where' land to be platted abuts
, on paved streets on which there are un-
' paid specials, we believe these specials
should . be made , before platting. As it
; now stands the city legal department
and the city engineering department have
the option in their own hands of either
assessing the abutting property or"re-
sauig uie aouiung (iropeiiy or re-
Ink parties to pay up, the specials be
pTatttng. i .
vent Sidewalks. The'.wldth of elde-
walks' and. location Along the ." streets
should be made by ' the otty planning
commission ana an warns snouid be or
vidth and variety designated y the
!ighth It should be unlawful for par
is to advertise and sell as clottfid
Eround any piece of ground before . the
plat, of said ground has been approved
and accepted by the city. . ..

The .other Omaha delegates are Fred

is now being platted by Hastings & Hey

eighth and Brown and Fort streets, is to
