   Chester Times (Newspaper) - June 25, 1925, Chester, Pennsylvania                                 CHESTER TIMES—CHESTER. PA., THURSdA\ JUNE 25. 1925.  FIVE  EASTERN DELAWARE COUNTY NEWS  DISCUSS ZONING OF HAVERFORD  Argument Over Business Section On South Eagle Road  Eastern Delaware County Office of the Chester Times is located at 6836 Market street, Upper Darby, Pa. Telephone Boulevard 422.  What Anally reached into discussion of whether residents of Eagle precinct had purchased land in Haverford township for investment purposes or for the establishment of homes took place at the open meeting held Tuesday evening at the high school to consider the preliminary report of tile Haverford zoning commission. The argument ended in a draw, pith the residents of Bon Air strongly opposed and most of tile other residents of Eagle precinct strongly favoring the zoning of Eagle road from the West Chester pike south to tho Bon Air tract as a business section. There was no argument about restriction in the other sections of tile township more than a few objections by individuals who declared that tile zones as laid out at present would decrease the value of their land.  Throughout .-iii Eastern Delaware county tile subject of zoning is of great interest. Lansdowne has been working on ti zoning ordinance for the past three months; Upper Darby has approved tile appointment of a zoning commission to prepare an ordinance; and tile completion of the ordinance in Haverford township has been followed with considerable interest.  One of the best points made at the meeting last night was by George "VV. Deeves who said that tile town- , ship could not expect added improvements if building was restricted too closely.  "Several years ago, Upper Darby township was not in a very strong financial condition, but at present they have mono to give the taxpayers the improvements the' need simply because they have encouraged building." Mr. Deeves declared. "If we make the restrictions so .severe here as to discourage building, taxes i will be trebled within the next few yea rs."  In the discussion whether Eagle road should he encouraged as a business thoroughfare or kept a residential street, personalities were freely indulged in and the speakers on the two sides of tile question were greeted with hisses and applause on several occasions.  The discussion had progressed past the most fiery part when a large prominent appearing man arose and in a convincing voice spoke of Hie advantages of developing Ute road as a business thoroughfare.  "In ten years I predict that Eagle road and the West Chester pike w ill be a centre of as much activity as Sixty-ninth street.’’ he declared. ‘Property owners anywhere within Hie vicinity will Increase their investment many times.’’  He sit down amid applause no. ticeable by its absence and a littl" woman arose immediately and cried In a thin, shrill voice, "Well thank goodness, there's something in the world for some of us besides money." Applause halted tile meeting for a few minutes.  The root at the bottom of the objections of tile lion Air folk seems to b*» that the business zone on Eagle road extends only to Bon Air so that if the section now mapped out is ewer built up with stores it will destroy the value of Bon Air as. n residential section and yet it w'iil riot be available for further construction of business houses.  "My property is just outside the boundary of the business section.” : one woman said. Bo if a store is I built on Hie property adjoining mine. my lot will be worth nothing as a residential site and I will not be: permitted to sell it for a business ' s ie "If the e Is to be any business se tion on ingle road, I want it to include my property down in Bon Air."  Several other persons lold of their property being similarly located inst outside of business .sections One man war complaining bitterly of his fate when Dewitt Robinson.  is it man of Hie meeting, interrupted him.  I rn in the same fix.” h© told the  objector.  "You are?" The man brightened perceptibly. ‘'Well if Im not the ■ nly on© n that kind of a fix I guess 111 just have to stand for it."  Mr Robinson explained that the zoning bill as passed bv tile logia lature provided for a board of nd-jjstment to dec.de exceptions to the terms of the ordinance arui to re. imburse property owners whose property 'alue was Injured by the restrictions.  The two principal orators of the evening who started the program with a. display of fireworks at tile v erv outset were Raymond s< Mosser mathematics nstrurtor at the Central  git school, Philadelphia, and %■ :esid*nt of Bon Air. and Charles Weissinger commissioner from Eagle precinct Mr. Schlusser dealt in per (tonalities to a considerable extent and Mr. We!" r inger replied in similar terms.  Mr. Sc'’Josser attempted to snow •hat certain citizens, mentioning Mr We ssinger in particular, favored the zoning of Eagle road to Bon Air as a business section because of nrop-©tty thew owned along the road  Mr. Schlosser also attempted to show that Hie residents of Eagle precinct oo.jhj supply their needs at other bu- joss section© which were already established and which were more accessible  "We don t want* Eagle road to  grow up to be a business centre. Thats what we let: Philadelphia to Set away from," Hie streaker de dared. "The only ones who want a business section along Manna road are those who have not yet learned to provide for lit hours  Mr. Weissmger spoke of tile value which the development of a business section along Eagle road would have for the rest of the vicinity and denied that lie had any selfish wishes in advocating Hie zoning as proposed, was greeted with hisses when in j  ATLANTIC CITY TRIP  PLUMBERS HEAR WM.

"The question should be settled by those who live in the section concerned" After each classification of the eight districts had been discussed. Mr. Robinson, Hie chairman, read tim legislative act which provided fur th© zoning ordinance. Another leading of the proposed ordinance will be held Monday, July 20, and it is likelv that some change of Hie ordinance as read last night will be announced at that time.

Aside from the technical side (if his talk he spoke about Hic pleasant spirit of co-operation which existed between tile plumbing board of Philadelphia and that of Upper I >a rby.  "It is only natural that plumbers w ho have been reproved for inferior : work in Philadelphia should get the ; idea that they could go to the suburbs iv here regulations might not fie so strict nor inspections so tlmr-i "Ugh. In Upper Darby township they have been disappointed however for we contend to be oven more strict than Philadelphia," said Mr. Steele.  "Certified plumbers from Philadelphia are permitted to come out here and register, taking an examination. This means that they have been recommended by the Philadelphia board as competent workers and in cases where thee have done inferior work the Philadelphia board has been very severe with them '  -Mr. Steele told of a recent instance when h© liH<1 demanded that a certain plumber of Philadelphia take up the floor for the Inspection of a job just completed.  "He delayed doing as I requested until I got in touch with Hie Philadelphia board and they notified him to do as I had asked or have his license revoked."  Several Philadelphia plumbers have been arrested on < harp oh brought by Mr. Steele during the past few weeks for working In Upper Darby without. being registered  “Plumbing inspectors should have no modesty about arresting plumbers who work without permits or being registered or who do not do work  Or© of the oldest residents of Drexel Hill, Edgar A Murphy. 427 Runnymeud avenue.
