Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, APRIL PRESETS TENTATIVE PLAN FOR HIGH RIVER MEMORIAL CENTRE HIGH CHKS) Stevenson, Calgary architect, at- tended the meeting of High Biver Community Council on April 24, to present plan for the proposed Memorial centre, and to discuss with the council the desir- ed facilities to be embodied in. the building. As roughly drafted, the plan provided overall space of feet by 72 feet, at an estimate of or It would include as main features an auditorium, kitchen, rising room, ciuJ> rooms, am lounge on one floor, with bowl- ing alleys and other sport activities in the basement, and an upstairs library and reading room. The plan as presented was merely to bring in to tangible form the ideas pro- posed and served as a good basis for discussion and J. Denney presided, and reported that the town council on being ap- proached in the matter of four pos- sble sites, had expressed a decided preference for the Astonc. site, as being most feasible of all available town property. This has the advan- tage of central location in the down- town area, near the shopping centre, the park, and probably meeting approval of country people. Its drawbacks were proximity to flood area, and lack of space for large- scale landscaping and outdoor sports in conjunction. But it was pointed out that the curling club was al- ready building elsewhere, that the courts were not far away and were well established, and that advantages might outweigh da- advantages. Two names were presented to the meeting for choice. The majority favored Memorial Cen- tre" rather than "High River Dis- trict Memorial Centre." In respect to financing it was agreed that there would have to be assistance from the town, probably through jsjajmg debentures, as vol- untary contribution could not care for total cost. Clark Fraser. rep- resentative of the town council, out- lined procedure for a money bylaw if the council agreed to the deben- ture plan. This would mean a two- third majority vote in favor with only property owners voting. Meth- ods of financing the proposed pro- ject will be presented at the nest meeting after consultation with the town council. Old Slack Pile Source Of Material For Improving Highway Grades work In the district is rapidly being com- pleted and the road crews have moved to new locations. The gravel highway to Picture Butte, which during the spring break-up was in a deplorable condition, has now been renaired with red ash from the old Commerce slack dump. In time it looks as though the entire road will be covered with the red ashes which have been hauled by the ton and dumped in the bad spots. Roads repaired with these ashes last year have proven more than satisfactory and with such a wealth of material available it should be an easy matter to keep the rosds in good condition. A high grade has been built on the mile soath from Cleve Johnston's, thus join- ing the gap which existed between the junction with the gravel and the grade extending north to the correction line. Truck load after truck load of red ash have also been snread on the road running on the east of Park Lake joining that soft stretch of road with the gravel at the park gates and the north grade. These imarovements are greatly anpre- ciated by the motoring public as at times these roads hare Seen al- most impassable.
