Mayor Anderson Enthused About Urban Life Study By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer A study on the quality of urban life in Alberta, proposed by the provincial government and accepted in principle this week by the mayors of the 10 cities in the province, is one of the most important studies be- ing done in Canada, Mayor Andy Anderson said Friday. The mayor, just returned from the meeting in Edmonton at which the terms of reference of the study were discussed, said he was very enthusiasitc about the project. Details on, the terms of refer- ence should be known in about two weeks. Some changes are now being made in the member- ship structure and there should be an announcement once these have been ironed out. The three-year study, known officially as the Task Force on Urbanization and the Future, will be financed by all three levels of government. No exact figures have been released on bow much it will cost or what portion will be borne by the city.

Each city will be able to con- centrate its efforts on whatever part of the study that is most applicable to its own situation. Mayor Anderson said Letb bridge would likely place con- siderable emphasis, as it has in the past, on higher educa- tion and cultural programs. The relationship between rural and urban life will also be included in the project, thereby involving all parts ol the province. The mayor's commendation of the provincial government for initiating the study was echoed by Thomas Nutting, the new city manager, who accom panied the mayor to the Ed- monton meeting.
