40 years ago: City annexes church site, defers action on Iowa Street businesses

September 21, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for Sept. 21, 1972:

The Lawrence City Commission this week annexed a three-acre tract of land to the south of the city limits after having been asked to bring the area into the city limits. The request for annexation of the site, located at the southwest corner of 19th Street Terrace and Louisiana, had come from the Indian Hills Church of God. Annexation had been requested so that city water and other services could be provided for a planned church building, construction on which was to begin next month. Commissioners had deferred action on a site plan for a Sirloin Stockade Restaurant and a financial institution on the west side of Iowa, between Harvard and Yale. The area recently had been rezoned to Neighborhood Shopping and was surrounded (except on the north) by residential zoning.

I'll bet that should have read "29th ST Terr"

Opened my first bank account at that CapFed -- back in the mid 1970s when I was in grade school.
