Growth Control For Alberta Cities Seen In Future Erwin Adderley, executive director of the Oldman Rive Regional Planning Commission says a program of con trolled urban growth in the province may eventually re suit in smaller centres being expanded while growth in larger cities is deliberately curtailed. Mr. Adderley was comment ing on a statement by Dennis Cole, Red Deer city commis sioner, at a recent Town Plan- ners' Institute of Canada con ference in Edmonton. Labor Picture In Balance The labor supply and de- mand in Lethbridge is fairly well balanced at the present time, according to the Canada Manpower Centre in Leth- bridge, with no serious job shortages and fewer than aver- age job placements. A July report showed eight per cent more people looking for work throughout the month this year than last, but there were also 12 per cent fewer job Agricultural job placements are down 70 per cent, largely due to improved mechaniza- tion. The Canadian agricultural population is now about eight per cent of the total Canadian work force, but is expected to drop to near five per cent within the next few years. With the end of summer in aght, general increases in pub- lic service placements are ex- pected to be evident, and also an upward employment trend in construction and r skilled labor. He had suggested that small er cities, such as Lethbridg and Red Deer, be "deliberate ly expanded" instead of Albei ta's two larger cities, Edmon ton and Calgary. The reason for the sugges tion, Mr. Adderley said, was that both cities had expe- rienced tremendous growth in a short period of time, wit] the result that many problems had been encountered. These were problems associ ated with rapid expansion, said, and would not necessarily be transferred to smaller cities if they were to expand more quickly than they had in the past. He said the whole idea is part of the "growth centre con- which involves de-cen- tralization and which is con- sistent with the federal govern- ment's incentives grant pro- gram. Any such program of deliber- ate growth of smaller centres could be co-ordinated through the regional planning commis- sions, he said. There was some indication given at the TPIC conference by Fred Colborne, minister of municipal affairs, that these commissions will be jiven a stronger voice in plan- ning in the. future, he said. He also mentioned that the dea of "participatory plan- ning" was in line with the over- all philosophy of the Task 'orce on Urbanization and the Future. Mr. Adderley attended the hird meeting of the Task Force study in Edmonton last week. While the terms of ref- erence of the study have not yet been released, he said the aim was to involve as many seople as possible in identify- ing urban problems and sug- esting solutions. Mayor And Minister To Talk Day Care Survey Mayor Andy Anderson said Tuesday he intends to broach the subject of a proposed day care survey being incorporated into a planned study of urban life, when Ray Speaker, min- ister of social development, vis- its Lethbridge today. The survey on the need for a day care centre in the city was Dorft Worry... It's Never too Say it with FLOWtRS called by Mr. Speaker after plans for the centre ran into opposition from local operators. Mayor Anderson said the sur- vey, which would be part of a general review by the province of the day care situation, would be possibly better handled by the urban life study ratter than as a series of independant surveys. The'urban life-study, an out- growth of a series of meetings called by Premier Harry Strom, will examine all aspects of the quality of life in Alberta cities. The exact terms of ref- erence of the study should be released in a week or two. City council has agreed to the day care survey, provided it is done at no cost to the city. Mr. Speaker is in Lethbridge today for a meeting with pen- Permit Values For Building Ahead Of 1969 TWO OF SEVEN WINNERS-Top, new garden class In the annual gardens competition in Lethbridge, spon- sored by the Lethbridge Horticultural Society, was won by R.
