Committee considering new site for F. A. Day Junior High School recommends use of three acres of former Avery property. Newton Villager reports the committee's view that "it is obvious that existing legal restrictions as well as logic require that the so-called 'wooded area' of the Avery Estate be left inviolate." Negotiations begin with Avery heirs to relax deed restriction to allow open portion of land to be used for school construction.
Newton Villager reports the committee's recommendation that "an absolute minimum of on-site parking, service areas and roads be allowed on this site."
The newspaper also reports that the committee recommended that the city purchase 3/4 acre of vacant land adjacent to Albemarle Playground and add it to the playground, "to partially compensate for the recreation land taken for the site." The land was never acquired, and most of it was subsequently developed.
