4,200 NEW HOMES FOR CUMBERLAND IN NEXT 3 YEARS

Chamber of Commerce Has Plans Well Under Way for Big Project.

CUMBERLAND, Md., July 16.—

Franklin H. Ankeney, secretary of the Cumberland Chamber of Commerce, has practically perfected arrangements whereby the desired number of new homes will be built here at a selling cost not to exceed $4,500. It has been estimated by Philip W. Blake, former secretary, that 4,200 additional houses will be necessary by 1924, to accommodate the expected influx owing to the industrial and commercial development anticipated. Two out of town institutions have practically agreed to finance, build, and sell the homes.

The exact number of houses to go up depends entirely upon the cost of building lots, which the engineering company stipulates must be fifty feet frontage and not exceed $400 per lot.

It is known that enough building space to erect more than the 4.200 houses needed here is available. If the costs of all the lots meets with the $400 stipulation it is practically certain the entire program will be accomplished before 1924, the secretary emphasized.
