EWLDC Plan Discussed
By C.B. Hauser q
Special to the Chronicle tJ
Residents of East Winston participated in a discussion c
of plans for the development of a shopping center in the t
area, gave some input and expressed some concerns t
about the shape the center is to take. c
The meeting was held, Saturday morning in the F
Winston Mutual Board Rooih. The meeting was sponsored
by the Committee to Promote Black Ownership, s
and Alderman Virginia K. Newell, chairperson of the
The proposed shopping center is to be built in the area
bounded by Fifth Street on the south, Ninth Street on th?
north, Claremont Avenue on the east, and Cleveland
Avenue on the west. The site, an urban renewal area, has
been under consideration by a number of developers for a
possible shopping center for the past two decades.
The committee discussed some plans for the center
- which are being drawn up by the East Winston Local
Development Corporation, Inc. (EWLDC), a non-profit
corporation, which is separate from the Committee to
Promote Black Ownership. Atty. R. Lewis Ray was the
spokesman for EWLDC. He is a member of both groups.
Such a firm would develop a comprehensive package
for the project to include: a feasibility study, a financing
plan, a marketing plan, a presentation for prospective
tenants, and it would identify and secure all resources real

that it was their responsibility to do whatever was
en necessary to aid the city and the program.
Dn Farabee assured members that the Summer Youth
ng Employment Program would be implemented as plannhe
ed. He said that the funding for the program would be at
id least equal to that of last year. It was also noted,
nt however, that last year 1200 youths applied for the program
but only 500 were able to work,

The committee to Promote Black Ownership was very
pleased by the initiative shown by the EWLDC in
developing plans for the shopping center. "We want the product

plan will be developed," said Mrs. Newell.
The audience made the following suggestions:
