COALDALE (HNS) Invin Adderley, executive director of Uic Oldjnan River Regional Planning Commission, recently discussed with town council the functions of the OKRPC and how the town could benefit to a greater degree from the ser- vices it is set up to provide. Code Clements, associate planner with the commission, was present. He is responsible for the town of Coaldale. Mr. Adderley said there are nine planning commissions in the province. Seven were regional and two, Edmonton and Calgary, were city-wide. The provincial planning act was set, up to encourage orderly development. Funds for opera- tion of the commissions will now come from the province, Through new legislation a foun- dation program has been es- tablished. The commission is not sure what it will receive, therefore the new budget it somewhat delayed. In the past Uic ORRPC op- erated on a budget established by the equalized assessment method, 60 per cent from the province and 40 per cent from the contributing municipalities. The ORRPC is responsible for square miles and 33 municipalities. The commission is comprised of representatives from each municipality. They set up policy and executive director Adder- ley carries out the policies. Mr. Adderley wants a list of priorities of projects for which town council would like to have pi a mi in p. Councillors said a p 1 o I scheme for the northside resi- dential area has been referred to the commission. Park areas and the trailer site proposed for the west end of town will be studied. Adderley pointed out' it would be advantageous lor Hie town io have an overall park development program prepared by the commission, rather than a study on one park at a time in a certain area. Then when new subdivisions arc developed council wDuld readily know if. an area should be set aside for recreation. The funds are held in a social community recrea- tion reserve and used as need- ed for recreational develop- ment. Council, with the co-operation of the Coaldale Fish and Game Association, has been interest- ed in having planning work done in the development of the former lagoon site as a trout pond and park area. Residential is a priority. Where and when the next subdivision should b c opened has a concern of council. Recommendations on service and plot schemes i n contemplated subdivisons is de- sired. Mr. Adderley urged council lo present a list of projects deemed as priorities for the commission lo plan. He also en- couraged the lov.ii officials to contact (he ORE PC whenever information on a planning mat- ter is required.
