As 1954 draws to a close and we look forward to 1955, the city is working vigorously to solve some of its major problems.

Parking and traffic continue to be two of these. Plans have been made to clear the Harlow Street property owned by the city in early 1956 in order to increase the size of the Abbott Square Parking lot. Plans are also in a formulative stage for the construction of a multilevel parking structure on th west side of the city.

The Air Force, the Bureau of Public Roads, and the State Highway Commission together with the city, have arrived at a solution to the problem of the relocation of Hammond Street around the expanded Dow Air Fore Base and it is expected that construction will be started in 1955. It is hoped that at the same time, a by-pass road can be constructed to connect with Main Street to route east-west traffic around the center of the city.

The operation of the new auditorium will be a major problem in 1955. An auditorium ordinance must be drafted for the regulation of this new department and a new department head chosen to supervise the operations.
