(1) Military Strength 1 - 25. This smallest of Commu-
nity Activity Centers is a compact version designed for a
very limited population of about 25. The space program
is shown in table 6 - 10. The design (see figures 6 - 46
and 6 - 47) reflects the organizational principles dis-

low partition and built-in seating from the games area.
