Myers Junior High Students Union has drawn up plans for a clubhouse, to serve 200 winter residents of the area and double that in summer. Moyie is about 22 miles south of Cranbrook. The club hopes to get a grant from the provincial recreational grants fund to cover one-third of the costs. The project is estimated to cost Total area of the centre will be square feet, including a 40 by 60 foot gym area. Secretary treasurer Heather Browning says members hope to know by April whether or not they can proceed. If so, construction could start this spring. The provincial department of human resources has donated to the project. The secretary also expects a trend to rural living to increase the permanent population of Moyie. At present, community activities are held in the one- room school. The proposed centre, which will contain gym, dressing rooms, kitchen and storerooms, would be built on provincial government land adjacent to the school. The land has been reserved for recreational use. Then the school children could use the gym, Mrs. Browning points out, and the school grounds could be used by the community at large in the summer. Truly a community project, plans were drawn up by architect Gerry Browning and donated. Ron Brown has offered to donate his services as a surveyor. And other residents will be asked to volunteer their labor when construction begins. The club has already been given approval to apply for a grant by the Regional District of East Kootenay. Other government grants, provincial and federal, will be sought to cover the balance Telltale signs spring Eleanor Allison reports from Vauxhall that pussy willows are out "in their pretty white coats" on a tree in her back yard ig Two more gopher sightings, one from >f John Lazarul, 1812 6th Ave. A N. and the other from the Heninger farm S near Raymond, indicate the little rodents can feel spring in the air.

The South in short School library opens today COALHTIRST (HNS) The annual school board meeting and the official opening of the Coalhurst High School library will take place today at 8 p.m. in the high school. J. Nicol, chairman of the County of Lethbridge school committee and C. E. Burge, superintendent of County of Lethbridge schools, will be guests. All parents and interested persons are invited to attend. By NANCY MILES Herald News Service CRANBROOK Because mobile homes are seldom moved more than once or twice, if ever, they should be regarded as permanent structures, says Regional District of East Kootenay planner Eugene Lee. He told the RDEK directors recently that homes, either conventional or mobile, are intended for families who have the same basic desires, wishes and demands. says Mr. Lee, "For the purpose of good planning and good government, the regulations for mobile homes should be as similar to that for the conventional homes as possible." The RDEK does not approve of location of more than one mobile home on a residential lot. It will not support the East Kootenay Union Board of Health in its attempt to have regulations changed to allow such development. The health board earlier wrote the RDEK to request support to have the definition of a mobile home park changed from "aay parcel of land on which are located two or more mobile homes." "The said the health board, "Is that many new types of dwellings come under the present definition of a mobile home." It noted that a mobile home is defined as a "structure manufactured as a unit, intended to be occupied in a place other than that of its manufacture, and designed for dwelling purposes." The health board says it is an "unintended hardship" when children cannot put a mobile home on their parents' property if the parents' home is of modular construction or a mobile home. It is allowed only if the parents' home is of frame constructuin. It requested support in having the definition amended to enable the health staff to apply the regulations "more in keeping with their intent." The planner says people in mobile homes demand about the same amount and standard of municipal services and protection. There is no reason, Mr. Lee says, not to allow mobile homes in residential areas, although intermixing would not be recommended. He told the REK council that the standard of construction of most mobile homes is "inadequate" and that many building inspectors refuse to inspect and approve them. Therefore, he would not recommend permitting higher density of mobile homes. Mr. Lee said, "It has been the tradition of most land use control laws that only one main building per parcel of land is permitted and it should be observed at least until alternative land use control measures are devised The concept of the homeowner's grant is based on the one main building per parcel princple, and no grants would go to mobile homes if there were two on a single lot. million shopping mall will have 40 new stores CRANBROOK (HNS) Tamarack Centre plans have been outlined to city council and an agreement draft is now in the hands of Cloverleaf.

But he said he is against "spot zoning" and wants the entire Cardston Municipal District zoned before the MD council gets into an area it could find tough sledding. Cardston MD Coun. David Wilde of Welling brought the matter up at a meeting of the Phone system 'not sufficient' PINCHER CREEK (HNS) The ski committee for the 1975 Canada Winter Games says it is not satisif ed with the communications system offered for West Castle. A temporary satellite will be in operation for the games but will be taken down afterwards. It was felt that a more permanent underground telephone system, to benefit the West Castle area, should be put in. The present communication system for West Castle is a mobile unit which isn't satisfactory. With the multiple use of the area in the Forest reserve, with family campers, boys camps, prison camps and recreation of many forms, a permanent system is a necessity, says a ski committee spokesman. Cardston MD council "Would there be more or less (planning) opposition to just another row of houses behind the row that is there rather than (subdividing) the whole 64 he wanted to know. "I would say more opposition to said Mr. Simons. "I don't believe in ad hoc developing." He suggested that some areas around hamlets like Welling be zoned "transitional." Coun. Wilde said the church ward wasn't subdividing the farm to make money because it makes more money as a farm. But the ward wanted to make land available so the community could grow. And they want Welling to grow in an orderly manner. Coun. Wilde said he thought the MD council could put it through that same afternoon. Sometimes it seemed hopeless. Said Mr. Simons: "I don't think you ever get to the point where there is no hope." Said Coun. Keith Olsen of Glenwood: "The point is, how bad do you want it Dave. If you want it bad enough there is always Cranbrook St. An incomplete steel-framed motor inn has stood on one parcel for four years.
