HOME OWNERS OPPOSE PARK.
Brush Creek Scheme Would Mean Confiscation, They Say.
Twenty-five men who are paying for their homes on the installment plan remonstrated with the park board yesterday against the contemplated revival of an effort to establish a park along Brush creek from Prospect avenue to The Paseo. They told the board that the cost of the improvement would mean confiscation of their property.
The charge was openly made that the promoter of the park is a man who owns the most of the land to be taken, and that he hopes to sell it to the city at a high price. A hearing will be given to all parties interested a week from next Wednesday.
During the Jost administration both houses of the council passed ordinances for the park, but Mayor Jost refused to sign them.
