Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBP.IDGE HERALD Tueidoy, Augusl 10, 1971 MRV still coming C'ily council Monday decided to "make liaste sl-wly" in pro- viding a park tor motorized recreation vehicles- City Manager Tom Nutting was directed lo the implementation of an order which would have set up a temporary MRV area in ciU land soutl- of the power plant. Mr. Nutting is also to inves- tigate tlie feasibility of the city encouraging MHV operators to negotiate for use of a private- ly-owned 160-acre parcel of land near Uie southern bound- ary of the city, The latter move vas contain- ed in a report froir Lhe parks and recreation commission ad hoc committee on MRVs. The committee, which includes representation from MRV user groups, suggested Lhe city might acqmre the land or obtain recreation use rights and then sublease to MRV op- erators or help MRV users set up their own operation. Dr. Tom Atkinson, parks and recreation commission chair- man, said that while the rec- ommendation might sound like a delaying laclic it could pos- sibly be a belter solution than setting up a piece of city land on a temporary basis and then working toward a permanent solution. Tliere was general agree- ment that the problem of des- ignating a specific area for MRVs could best be handled by an organization of persons who use this type of vehicle. Dr. Atkinson said the city could probably support such a ven- ture, without direet involve- ment. Alderman Joe Balla pointed out that similar groups, such as shooting enthusiasts, have dime the same in the past.
