The wisdom of possibly In- ing the arena near the col- lege was questioned by mem- bers of the luslnnt Ice Council who wondered if Ihe college wouldn't "hog" the facility for its own purposes and leave lit- lion of location and concentrate on the facility itself. First of all, it mast be de- termined if Lethbridge at this point in its development needs a multi-purpose, spectator ice arena, Ostipov said. In order to make such a fa- cilily successful, he said, it must be versatile enough to be used 250 to days a year and not just for hockey. The city must decide if it wants to atlracl major-drawing events which now bypass Hie city because Ihey can't afford to come here.The Ice Capades is one example.

"I am requesting that you reconsider your plans for the expressway in Jjclhbridge and, if necessary, change its path so that the college campus development plan will not be adversely affected."
