SWIFT RUN DRAIN: Costing $228,000, work on the Swift Run Drain in Pittsfield township has started. The drain pipes will replace the open drain shown in the picture. Serving two-thirds of Pittsfield Village, Pittsfield Park and all of the township east of US-23 between Packard Rd. and Washtenaw Ave. and Oak Park and Washtenaw Heights Subdivisions north of the Central Ave., the drain will connect with the Ann Arbor trunkline near Hogback Rd. and Huron River Dr. The Ginno Innai Construction Co. of Dearborn is doing the work, financed by a 20-year bond issue. The picture was taken between Pittsfield Park and US-23.

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.

Two Pittsfield Park neighbors, the William G. Moores and Byron D. Abbetts of Yost Blvd., offer a study in living room contrasts. Almost identical in architectural design, the living rooms—as well as the rest of the dwelling—are decorated and furnished in opposing contrasting styles. The Moores' home (top) is furnished in Early American, the Abbetts' dwelling (bottom) is modern throughout. Interior color schemes help to set the two homes far apart in appearance.

Pittsfield Village, Pittsfield Park: Typical of urban development in Pittsfield township is the establishment of residential districts such as Pittsfield Village and Pittsfield Park, shown here. The Village, a large rental housing project, is identifiable by the curving roads. Pittsfield Park, a community of some 100 houses, is toward the upper left in the photo. A string of businesses have located in the area to service these residents. Other businesses and light industries have located in the township because of its proximity to Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.
