Report of City
Following Is a written report of
Director Lawrence of the University
of Oregon and suggestions on the
Mr. Bert R. Greer, Chairman Springs
' Water Commission, Ashland, Ore.:
Dear Mr. Greer: Now that I am
back in my office for a day or so
and have a chance of thinking over
my observations of Ashland, I am
taking the liberty of writing my con
ception of your problem, hoping that
it may at least make my own posi
tion in the matter a little more clear
than I was able to do on my short
I am convinced, in the first place,
that your opportunity is all that you
think it is, and that you are handling
the problem in a broad-gauged man
ner is evidenced by the employment
ot such an eminent landscape archi
tect as Mr. McClaren.
As I suggested in my last conver
sation with you and Mr. Dodge, I be
lieve that the entire problem should
be studied both from the landscape
and architectural points of view, and
that a plan be made forecasting as
far as possible the future develop
ment. From our experience at the
University In the university block
plan and in our park work in Port
land I believe that much saving will
be made if such a study is made to
start with. This would prevent
wasteful duplication and' would un
doubtedly make a greater proportion
pf the Improvements now made, per
manent. Incorporated in this plan I
would suggest that a provision be
made for the following Items in addi
tion to the sanitarium and hotel de
velopment: Treatment of approach to Llthia
Springs Park. This Is in a way a
problem of the city plan, for under
the present arrangement of streets
the congestion is very bad for a big
development, especially If you carry
out your intention of fronting the
tourist hotel and sanitarium upon the
activities of the park. The location
of the new station bear's definitely
on this matter of approach and I
strongly urge that the topography of
the town be respected as far in as
possible to avoid any descent to the
entrance of the park between it and
A city plan commission with strong
veto powers as far as municipal gov
ernment Is concerned would be of
great service to your commission in
handling this problem ot the ap
proach to the park. In the near fu
ture I hope to send from my flies a
rough draft of such a town planning
The control of property abutting
the park seems very essential If the
city's investment Is to be saved. It
would be admirable if the Increase
In value of the surrounding property
caused by the Improvement of the
hiark could be secured for the mu
nicipality. If the right of excess con
demnation was existing in the state
you could apply It to securing that
abutting property, reselling It at the
Increased value subject to such re
strictions as your commission deemed
best to protect the city's interest. Not
having this power legally, It Beems
to me that the matter should be han
dled privately by some group of citi
zens. If this for any reason seemed
Impracticable I believe that the or
ganization of the property owners
themselves, educating them through
such an organization as to their du
ties and opportunities, would certain
ly guarantee' the city a far wiser de
velopment and use of the private
property than individual owners or
dinarily would execute.
The treatment of the railroad sta-.
tlon and Its grounds Is of great Im
portance, it seems to me. The entire
right of way of the Southern Pacific
track inside the city boundaries
might well be planted with hardy
trees of some kind which would not
take much care, while the station
grounds might be landscaped, having
as a principal feature some water
basin or small fountain. Properly a
part of the city plan would be the
system of drives connecting up the
outlying springs with their rustic
buildings, etcr The development
likewise of country club, golf links,
tennis courts, ball diamond, polo
grounds, race track, etc., should come
under the study of the city plan, but
has a definite bearing upon the suc
cess of Ashland as a health resort.
. The treatment of the White Way
on Mill street leading to the real en
trance gate Is very Important, and It
is unfortunate that the city cannot
control both sides of this street, plac
ing the entrance gateway as It should
be, nearer the city plaza. If this Is
out of tlie question even in the near
future It might be possible to secure
Bome legislation placing a sort of
blanket restriction over all properties
facing on city parks. This would
probably be difficult to secure under
our present laws. Again, it might be
wise to organize the property owners
so that an agreement can be made
with tliem as to the type of shops to
be erected by them. The electric
treatment of this street, and in fact
the entire park, is one ot the most
Interesting parts of your problem.
Provision for the following fea
tures might well be considered: Park
gates, Temple of Waters, the spring
houses, outlooks, rustic bridges, com
fort stations, rest rooms and shelters,
children's playground, wading pool.
lake with boat house, auditorium.
band stands, garage and stables, zoo,
park concessions, etc.
I suggest also that you get In touch
with Dr. W. D. Smith, head of the
geology department of the university,
who might be persuaded to write a
report on the geological formation of
the Ashland basin. This might give
you a valuable piece of advertising
literature and should give a clearer
Idea of the sources of the waters and
It seems to me that you are to be
envied in your opportunity, and I
assure you we shall be glad to aid
you further in your problem If It is
within our power to do so.

Conference, about which I spoke to
you, are May 28 and 29. I hope
sincerely that you will plan to attend
I have asked the extension depart

At Grants Pass
The bids for the construction of a
court house at Grants Pass were
opened by the Josephine county court
Thursday and the lowest bid was by
a Portland contractor, $52,000 being
the amount. The architect's estimate
was $80,000 for the building.
A certain amount of opposition is
being manifested in Grants Pass
against the building of a new court
house, but the bids show that the
building can be built at this time at
a great saving to the Josephine coun
ty taxpayers. This fact alone should
overbalance all opposition, as It Is
only a matter of time before the coun
ty will be forced to build.
All of the bids were rejected by
the county court. No new bids will
be asked immediately.
