Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta ercusswns CRANBKOOK (Special) A special mceliny will be held tills month to further consider the proposed zoning of the Elk Ilivor Valley. A bylaw, given three read- ings by the Regional District of East Kooleiiay at its June meeting, was opposed so vocal- ly at its public hearing, July 10, that citizens were invited to make written submissions to the Board Office before Satur- day's meeting. Several letters were received, and more than a dozen citizens attended the Board meeting. Although chairman Vincc Downey explained that the pub- lic hearing en the proposed zonhig bylaw had already ta- ken place, several Elk Valley residents were allowed to com- ment again, and the hoard de- cided to hold a special meet- ing before forwarding the by- law to the lieutenant-governor in council for approval before final reading. The bylaw pro- Deny Union NATAL, B.C. (HNS) On August 5, 1970, the Labor Rela- tions Board of B.C. conducted a hearing and invited all in- terested parties concerned to attend. After hearing all argu- ments, the board ruled that the application for certification by Local 115C of the Operating Engineers was outside the time limit as per Section 10 (I) (C) of the Labour Relations Act. The Operating Engineers will now have to wait until May and June of 1971 to try to re- organize, if they so desire. The legislation was amended to the seventh and eighth month in the last legislature. The board said that the effective date of contract is the first of Novem- ber. It previously allowed for any union to apply for certifi- cation where anolher union was already certified in Ihe eleven- th and twelfth months.

FEW CALLS According to an official report from New Delhi, the Indian Army was called in to maintain law and order 12 times last year, five times the year before and 14 times in 1987. vidss for two urban develop- ments in the Elk Valtcy-Spar- wood at t li e southern end and the Fording Coal townsile, which will be built at Ihe north- ern end, where Boivin Creek flows into the Elk River. B.esi- denls objected lo clauses which would not allow subdivision ol agricultural land into parcels ol less than eighty acres and which would keep residential sites at least five acres in size. The main gist of the argu- ments presented was that the bylaw would prevent owners from doing what they like with their land. One owner felt he should have the right "to capi- lalize on Ihe situation where there is now a shortage of land." He said there had been no encumbrances on his lanci when he bought it, and lie thought t here should not now he regulations controlling his use of the land. He did not ob- ject to implementation of building standards, and he did not agree with the proposed zoning regulations. Why was the Board taking time to zone when it should be controlling pollution? Mayor Maurice Klmkhamer of Cranbrook suggested that the rancher was being contra- dictory in demanding the right lo do as he pleased with his property at the same time that he was demanding that the board protect him from pollu- tion. Mayor R. Lenardon of Fernie recommended that the concern- ed citizens come up with some alternatives if they could not agree with the provisions of the bylaw. Several directors pointed out that zoning is a highly imper- manent thing in municipal gov- ernment Administrator Frank Bertoia called it "a highly flex- ible tool." A zoning plan can easily he amended by the board that controls it if any owner comes to that board with an acceptable proposal. The purpose of the plan as it stands, said Regional Planner Alfred Miller, is to maintain the natural beauty of the Elk Valley as long as possible. When development must come, however, it will be controlled by the hoard if the area is un- der a zoning bylaw. If it is not, the development will occur at the whim of any owner. What the board intended in propos- ing the bylaw was the preven- tion of "ribbon development" up the valley. A similar bylaw, covering the Wasa Lake Improvement Area and some adjacent lands, was enthusiastically accepted at its public hearing, July 2.

The proposal basically is 30 of the lots lo be developed as a housing development and Ihe remaining 31 lots to have cus- tom built homes. Council will retain first rights of refusal on the 31 lols for custom houses. The plans for each house will have lo be ap- proved by council after htey have been studied by the advis- ory planning board. If agreement is reached with council and if Paradise Homes limited can arrange for a mortgage, the development will take place over two years. Any of Ihe 31 custom home lots not developed after two years will revert to the municipality on the MD road will begin about mid-September. The council also agreed to oil gravel roads in front of farm steads troubled by dust raised by MD trucks while hauling 'gravel for road work. A protest has been lodged by the municipality to the federal government in connection with a bill for which repre- sents sales tax on a dragline was purchased three years ago. The purchase was exempted because the machine was to be used on road building. It has been in use handling j gravel from pit to crusher to provide surfacing foi surfacing for district hich com being used for road IP' roa'ds, which councillors main- tain is work. But the government docs not feel the connection between the dragline and road construction is close enough to exempt the payment of sales tax. Hence the bill. .And hence the i protest.
