Timely Project The Parkland Bu.~iness club h:is announced intention to investigate thoroughly the subject of possible incorporation of this community as a town. The club's action is to be applauded and its findings w:itchcd with interest. There arc many phases of the subject that need to be brought into tbc light before the community will be in position to decide what course it wishes to pursue. And, the time remaining for free decision is comparatively short. Incorporation of a town is no matter to be decided overnight. The implications of such a step are many. If intelligent decision is to be made, there is rnuch groundwork that must be done. The Business club is commencing to turn tbat earth now. Presumably, Parkbnd is faced with three possible courses of action. It may continue for the time being as an unorganized community under county administration: it may be absorbed into the city of Tacoma, or it m:iy retain its own identity under a town government. Probably the first choice has most appeal at this time to a large proportion of residents. The community has so far not fared badly under county administr:ition. The community is relieved of responsibility. Controversy is at a minimum and community feeling is practic:illy non-existent. But, there is ever-incre:ising pressure to disturb the status quo. As the area between Parkland and tbe present city limits of Tacoma becomes more settled, there is a tendency for this community to be considered ever more as a Tacoma suburb. Evidence of this fact is the proposed extension of the -1 ·acoma street numbering system through and beyond Parkbnd. The day is not far off when the conuminity will find itself a stepchild of both the county and city and will find no other course open but to turn in desperation into the city fold. This is th@ history, with few exceptions, of communities placed as is Parkland, upon the borders of a first class city. So, actually, Parkland has but two alternatives of pernunent choice: To vote into the city of Tacoma or to vote incorporation as a separate community. Now is not too soon to examine the merits of those altern:itives.
