VILLAGE MODELS READIED: These two model homes, the first visible step in a planned $150,000,000 redevelopment of Willow Village with private housing, are now nearing completion on Blossom St., just east and north of occupied portions of the Village. These houses, to cost in the area of $11,000 for the frame (left) and $12,000 for the brick, are the first of 61 planned in the lower-priced Washtenaw Orchards Subdivision No. 1. Construction of homes there and elsewhere will begin after the sales models have been completed and opened, spokesmen for the Willow Woods Development Co. of Detroit said. Private redevelopment of the wartime "Bomber City" began after Ypsilanti township purchased the village in November, 1954. No completion date has been set, although the existing Village structures are scheduled, by law, to be razed by July 1, 1958.

PITTSFIELD PARK CONTINUES TO GROW: Despite government restrictions and material shortages, Pittsfield Park Corp.'s president and architect, Charles Noble of Ann Arbor, reports that building activity will move along through the winter at a good pace. Eleven houses are currently under construction, with other dwellings being planned for as the number of commitments once again begin to add up after last summer's temporary "embargo" on sales was lifted in November.
