Farm Land is County's Best: Pittsfield township, with about 4,500 acres of Class I farm land is considered to have more top farm land than any other of Washtenaw county's 20 townships. Class I farm land is defined as "suitable for cultivation with ordinary farming practices. It is practically level, easily drained, with little danger of erosion." Whereas Washtenaw county land is typically rolling and hilly, in the central part of Pittsfield township the land is generally flat and excellent for farming. Despite top farming land, the township has lost about half of its farmers in the past 10 years.

Westward Ho: Ann Arbor's city limits are pushed ever outward. And this aerial photograph offers graphic evidence. That thoroughfare across the bottom of the picture, completely paved and lined with neat homes on landscaped lots is Duncan St. Earlier in this decade, Duncan St. resembled the area above it, an area which lies due west. Maple Rd., the western city limits in this area, is shown above the rough land under construction as it extends across the picture. Miller Ave. is shown along the right extending from Duncan up to Maple. The sector under construction is Westaire subdivision, a 200-lot project being developed by Staebler & Son and the Prospect Hill Construction Co., a subsidiary of the Home Realty Co. Today, its streets are but graded, exaggerated paths through the field. But, they have recorded names and, in the future they will appear as urban as Duncan. Looking from Duncan west, the first street (the curved street) is N. Circle Dr. (right) and S. Circle Dr. (left). Above the curved street are three straight streets known as Westaire Way, Hasper Dr. and Western Dr. On to the west (toward top of picture), beyond Maple Rd., lies pastoral land. How long will it maintain its rural appearance? Who knows?

This aerial photo shows the layout of the new "back nine" of the Huron Municipal Golf Course, scheduled to open for play this weekend. The new nine holes, located on 70 acres of rolling, wooded land just south of the present nine-hole course, should provide an interesting challenge to local golfers. As the yardage and par figures show, the second nine is not particularly long in distance, but the fairways are narrow and the greens craftily placed, putting a premium on accuracy and the "short" game. Alternate tees on the 12th and 16th holes will shorten them to par three's if the golfer wants to play them that way. Played from the back tees, the new nine has a par of 33. The City Park Department admits the back nine will not be in the best of condition when opened but by next year should be in good shape. The course is located on E. Huron Dr. south of the river.
