Maybe he figures Hollywood Squares is for Cranbrook launching detailed growth study CRANBROOK (Special) A plan to detail the growth design of Cranbrook during the next five years has been given the go-ahead by city council. Eugene Lee, community planner for the Regional District of East Kootenay, will make the study. It could cost additional fees after 1974. It is expected to take a year or IVz years to complete. The need for comprehensive planning has been the main objective of the present city council since it took office Jan. 7. It will determine which areas of the city should be used for residential purposes, commercial purposes, industrial expansion and recreational needs. It is expected the plan will give a general layout of streets, incorporate water and sewage needs and provide plans for the redevelopment of the downtown area. Mayor Ty Colgur said a consulting firm could have been hired to complete the job more quickly but council felt Mr. Lee will be able to provide a more accurate study. Mr. Colgur said because the planner is in the community and knows the area he will be able to obtain a great deal of community input as to what the people of Cranbrook want.
