Farness director of the County y^en ^g result of vastly improved industrial transportation systems, increased use of family automobiles and a yen to return to the country, he nofed. It presents a great challenge and opportunity to communitites like Saline.' In order for a community to grow successfully," he commented, its governing bodies should have a "conscious, deliberate policy to- .vard expansion, part of which must rest on practical economic considerations." It is especially important in this respect that communities maintain a balance between residential and industrial or commerical development, he continued. Each unit of medium and .low priced housing uses up more city services than it pays in taxes, Farness explained. High-priced housing in the $20,000 - and - up bracket and-industry are necessary to main, tain adequate revenues for the city without major increases in the tax rate. The quality of a community has become an increasingly important factor in the location of new industry, Farness maintained, since there is often little difference in the transportation and utilities available in- various communities. Numerous small fabricating industries have been attracted to Washtenaw County for this reason, he stated, and more could' probably be found for the Saline area. Farness emphasized thatrespon- sibility for community development rests largely in the hands of city government, which controls use and provision of utilities. Help in planning for development is available through state offices and the County Planning Commission, he concluded.
