Final General Plan Ready CLARIiSIIOLM long awaited General Plan for llic Town of Ciaresholm lias finally arrived from the' prov- incial planning branch of the department of municipal af- fairs. The first draft of the plan received about two years ago but rejected by the mayor and council and sent back for revision. The plan is in the form of a 50-page book filled vviih facts on the history, development, population analysis and projec- tion, public and semi-public fa- cilities, eight maps, and nine tables pertaining to population and trading area, birth rate and population projections. Up until 1901 Glaresliolm dis- trict was occupied by ranchers and Indians when a large influx of settlers arrived from East- ern Canada and the U.S. Ciaresholm was incorporated in 1903 as a village and 1905 as a town. By 1911 the population was 809 and grew to peo- ple 40 years later in 1051. Except for the sudden de- crease in population associated with the closing of the RCAF training base in 1957, the popu- Fisli And Game Sets Deadline At Sept, 1 PINCHER CREEK (Specia With hunting season ju around the comer and fishin coming up this fall, all men and spoitswomen are r minded to purchase their Fis and Game memberships.

'Hie year 1956 was noted for having the highest number of babies born in Ciaresholm 52 boys and 44 girls. The same year there were 19 deaths. In 1965 the birth rate equal- led the death rate with 27 of each. It is anticipated that the death rate will remain rela- tively high for some time as there is a high percentage of older persons residing in Ciaresholm. About 975 people in Ciaresholm are 50 years of age or older. About 820 people are in the age bracket between 15 years and 45 years. In 195G 10.7 per cent of the population was over 65 years of age. In 1966 there were 19.1 per cent in that age group or 490 persons. From 1956 to 1961 approximately 523 persons left Ciaresholm, mainly due to the airport closing down. Three hundred and fifty-two persons came into the town from other areas in the 1961- 1966 period according to the planning department's survey. This increase has been brought about by the concentration in Ciaresholm of medical facili- ties such as the Alberta Hospi- tal, the Willow Creek Hospital, a senior citizens lodge, indus- trial development at the form- er HCAF station (Ciaresholm industrial airport) three miles west of town and the town's strategic position between Cal- gary and Lethbridge on a maj- or highway. It is expected that this in- ward migratory trend will con- tinue as the expansion of exist- ing industries together with the establishment of new industries increases the employment po- tential of the town.

Located 10 miles east of Cranbrook on Highway No. 3, the new substation will be de- veloped in stages to meet growing power demands of East Kootenay homes and in- dustries. The initial stage, occupying 13 acres of the 47-acrc site, will be completed in 1971. Power received over a 000-volt transmission line now being built from Bonnevillc Power Administration's Bound- ary Generating Station switch- yard, near Nelwuy, will be transformed to volts and fed the East Kootenay and Columbia Valley area over four lines. Two of tiie lines will deliver power to Kimberley, via Cran- brook and Marysville with a southern extension to Jloyic and the other through Fort Stecle. Two other lines extend to Abcrfieldie, Galloway and Elko.
