Adderley speaks to town council COALDALE (HNS) train Adderley, executive director of the Oldinan River Regiona' Planning Commission, recently discussed wiih town council the functions of the OKRPC anc 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. lie 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 is somewhat delayed. Iii the past the 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 OREPC 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 ov.ii council would like to have planning. Councillors eaid a plot scheme for the northside resi- dential area has been referred to the ccmmission. Park areas and the trailer site proposed for the west end of town will be studied. Mr. Adderley pointed out it .vould bo advantageous for the :own to have an overall park development program prepared the commission, rather tliaa a study on one park at a time n a certain area. Then when lew subdivisions arc developed council would readily know if i an area should be set aside for I recreation. The funds are held in a special 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, lias been interest- ed in having planning work done in the development of the former lagoon site as a trout pond and park Residential expansion is a priority. Where and when the next subdivision should b e opened has been a concern of council. Recommendations on service and plot schemes i n contemplated subdivisons is de- sired. Mr. Adderley urged council to present a list of projects deemed as priorities for the commission to plan. He also en- couraged the tov.ii officials lo contact the ORRPC whenever information on a planning mat- ter is required.
