EXPANSION TO THE WEST: Graveled Maple Rd. (running diagonally across picture) may become a city street in the not-too-distant future. Growth to date can be seen in this Ann Arbor News aerial photograph. Home Realty Co.'s 100-home Arbor Heights subdivision No. 2 (at upper left) is under construction Fritz School to right of Maple Rd. (near center of picture) has already been taken into the city school district (June, 1949). The Ann Arbor Board of Education anticipating continued growth bought a ten-acre site last June for a proposed 18-20 room elementary school. The site includes open fields (left edge of picture) and part of wooded area. The fairgrounds (at upper right) may be a community recreation center if City Council plans to buy it are carried out.
