Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIOGE August Medicine Hat-Redcliff population may reach by 1994 MKDICINK HAT The Combined population of Hodi-liff and the 'Hat will probably increase by 50 per cent over the next 20 years to 50.000 pi-uple. says a growth study released at a public meeting here Wednesday night. The study prepared by Calgary con- sultants I'nderwood. McLellan and Associates says the combined population of Redcliff and the 'Hat is expected to jump from 35.000 to 40.000 between 1976 and 1981. The Calgary planning consultants, hired six months ago by the regional planning com- mission, presented the 180-page brief to civic- groups, many of whom had submitted position papers. In accord with a proposal from St. Mary River Irrigation District, the 20-year growth forecast recommends that the "peripheral areas of Medicine Hat and Redcliff should be maintained free of all residential development, except that which is directly related to commercial agricultural operations." Country residences, the report adds, should be located ''in or near existing settlements, rather than denying them completely." Based on a "medium" population projection, the town and city will need new residential lots bv 1981 and 2.700 new lots by 1996. Tin- report recommends "infilling" of current residential areas and warns against housing starts north of current construction in the Cres- cent Heights area, north and west of city centre. "Expansion in Crescent Heights should be limited to retain that area as a buffer between heavy industries to the northwest in Brier Park." the study says. With heavy industry moving north of Highway 1. the report urges residential growth between the 'Hat and Redcliff "should be restricted to areas south of the Trans-Canada Highway." The study also recommends: Retaining the airport in its present location: Upgrading Highway 1 in its present location: -Relocating CP Rail yard facilities outside the 'Hat, keeping two tracks and the passenger station within city limits; and calculating natural gas reserves for "basic community needs." The report recommends that "proposed petrochemical industries should obtain their natural gas requirements from sources other than the city or town until reserves are proven to be more relocatable buildings for the 'Hat day care centre, facing "an immediate demand for 200 spaces." The child care centre "is operating at full capacity and must give priority to those children with special circumstances." -Replacing Redcliff town police with RCMP; a common boundary between the 'Hat and Redcliff to "eliminate uncertain jurisdictions over school costs, provision of municipal services and land development." The report also says the town and city could both save money by integrating schools, police, fire protection and the cost of water, sewer and gas service. The 'Hat and Redcliff earlier agreed to build a connecting sewage transmis- sion line after department of the environment of- ficials told Redcliff that the town's sewage dis- posal system fails to meet provincial standards.

Tomatoes from potatoes? A fair number of Lethbridge potatoes are going to seed these days, a Canada department of agriculture research scien- tist told The Herald Wednesday. W. E. Torfason of the Lethbridge Research Station, said he has received several inquiries about small, green, tomato-like fruit appearing on potato plants. They aren't tomatoes, though the two plants are related. They're potato seeds, he says. Most occurances have been in the Norland potato variety, he adds. Dr. Torfason said the seeds will produce potatoes, but have to be started in a greenhouse Potato varieties are developed this way, but commercial potatoes are grown from eyes, he says. Potatoes have a very complex genenc inakeup, he says, and the seeds are cross-pollinated and would not have the same characteristics as their parents. If one fruit contained 100 seeds, it would probably yield 100 different varieties, he says.

Jay Purnell. director of the Alberta irrigation division in Lethbndge, said the Alberta Energy Resources Conserva- tion Board has passed an order that will stop oil com- panies from drilling wells in Trucks sold to Three garbage trucks assembled by a city firm are being loaded on board a CP Rail flatcar in Lethbridge for shipment to 'die V.Vsi Indies. The truck bodies called "Haul-Alls" are produced by Haul-All Equipment Systems, a division of Neufeldt In- dustries and mounted on right hand drive trucks supplied by the International Harvester Co. of Springfield. Ohio. The units will be shipped by rail to Montreal, with one destined for Granada and two for Mont Serrat. Worth the contract was obtained through the Canadian International Development Agency and is being financed by the Cana- dian Commercial Cor- poration. J.J. Neufeldt. president of Neufeldt Industries will travel to the Caribbean to provide operational and maintenance instruction to vehicle operators. The company manufactures about 200 to 250 Haul-All units psr year. The 12 cubic yard units feature a side leading compactor and are said to be more versatile for shorter runs than conventional larger garbage trucks. Operating out of a Kenyon Field hangar since 1965, the firm, which originated in Coaldale. also makes potato bulk boxes and a line of in- dustrial gas fired appliances. the middle of fields where possible. The problem has increased during the past few years with the increased use of irrigation systems which move across the fields under their own power. Wheel-move side roll units and centre pivot systems require a certain amount of clearance to operate efficient- ly and the well sites prevent this because many wells in the south require tall pumping un- its, Mr. Purnell saia farmers now are in a better position to negotiate well sites on their land. The main problem in oil companies moving their well sites to corners of each quar- ter section of land involved petroleum withdrawal rights. Where an oil company moves to a corner of a field to a site closer to another company's operations, concessions are granted the company in the middle of the field for lost petroleum products. Checked back lane for weeds? Lethbridge residents are be- ing asked by the city to help clear back lanes of weeds, ac- cording to a spokesman from the city weed inspector's of- fice. The spokesman said the city has received several com- plaints about weedy back lanes and private lots. The spokesman said the weeds constitute a definite fire hazard in the fall and tend to become a nuisance. It causes excessive snow drifting in the winter and every effort should be made to keep these weeds under control." the spokesman said.
