In arid OK i in p a c t of minins; upon the environment, an en- p la n nin g study sliould be conducted, lie said. "Extensive, plamimg-orient- ed research of a region and its predict eminent reading to crises. "One of tho well-established roles of a planning agency is to collect, review and comment" information collected by environmental ef- joint provincial, municipal and commis- sions, which are the only exist- ing agencies with botli regional ceope r.nd elected regional rep- resentr.tion, review any surface frcis of alternative land uses: private parties. and then relate these to social; Regional planning and economic values." Mr. Nicholson commended the introduction of new legisla- tion to permit more compre- hensive control of resource u-ics and the new legislation proposed. He said the hiRhlifibt of the proposed legislation is a rec- ommendation that all agencies a n d departments concerned with strip mining be involved in actual administrative deci- sions. 'Tills is crucial to successful Umd use and resource alloca- niining or land reclamation proposals, lie said. Tiie environmental impact from strip mining is regional. Therefore, Mr. Nicholson said, "a regional planning agency can and sliould have a key role in the administration of any new legislation."

The best way to "prevent" implementation of tic pro- posals is to "further encourage t h e compartmcntalization of jurisdictions and agencies in- volved." Mr. Nicholson said, the po- tential affects of surface min- ing are too diverse, too persis- tent, too complex and too over- whelming in their impact or the environment for its regula- tions to be regulated to a sin- gle government department. "In regional land uses, the agencies involved should he said. "But their concerns should be co-or- dinated." In a later interview Mr. Nicholson said, a preliminary regional plan is scheduled for next April, at which time strip mining and gravel pits in the region will be studied by his planning commission. He said there are about '200 i gravel pits active and aban- the area. The status and legislation governing these j year, will be reviewed.
