Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 19, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdntiday, Ftbruary 19, 1975 Fernie's home needs says city Airport commission formed to meet grant requirement FERNIE (Special) The City of Fernie has had no word yet from the B.C. Hous- ing Commission on the city's application that the commis- sion develop about 600 lots in the airport subdivision, Aid. Adrian Kennedy said today. The city applied to the com- mission about six weeks ago. City council has informed the provincial government that if it is going to develop the airport subdivision, it must say so by March 10. If the province agrees to allow development of these lots, building must start by April 15, council has decided.

Kennedy says, "There is a desperate need for con- struction and lot development." He says there will be a 50 per cent population increase in this area over the next four years. And he has B.C. Telephone population forecast figures to back him up. Besides the option of bring- ing in the provincial government, there are two other possible developers for the airport subdivision area. Lucaya Construction Com- pany Ltd. of Vancouver has offered to include fire hydrants at no cost to the city. The firm would sell fully ser- viced lots to individuals. Edward Lipp, Lucaya president, said in a letter to council, "As you know, several months have elapsed since the start of this project and we are most anxious to commence work on the sub- division in order to complete 100 housing units by the end of 1975. FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Mayor Charlie Edgar and Coun. John Viens, chairman of council's airport com- mittee, Monday night were named by council to the air- port commission. Acting quickly, council agreed to Coun. Viens' sugges- tion that it would be good to have an airport commission because one is called for on the grant application form that will go to the department of transport. A grant and a loan are sought. The local airstrip is owned by the Town of Fort Macleod and is operated by a com- mittee comprising members from town council, the Fort Macleod Flying Club and the Fort Macleod Chamber of Commerce. "If we don't have an airport commission established by bylaw, they won't even con- sider giving us a Coun. Viens told council. Town Administrator Roy White told council the ment had investigated the air- strip site. and found it un- suitable. But council said the present Elementary schools reorganized at Taber RETIREMENT SAVINGS PLANS AVAILABLE write or phone CO-OPERATIVE TRUST tOMPANY OF CANADA 301 14th St. N.W. Calgary T2N 2A1 Phone 283-5502 TABER (HNS) Two elementary schools here have been reorganized and pupils redistributed, School Superintendent James L. George said this week. The Dr. Hamman School will be used for Grades 1 to 3. Central School will be for Grades 4 to 6. It will be effective this September. Acceptance of he plan, proposed four years ago, com- es after a first-hand view of a similar plan at Fort Macleod. It was studied by Taber prin-' cipals James Oshiro and Morgan Johnson, school trustee Mary Cunningham, and the superintendent. Economic advantages include the reduction of teachers at each school by two. Expenditures for teaching aides will also be reduced. Preparation for junior high school will be more effective, says Mr. George. There will be a larger group of upper elementary pupils who can be better geared for the transi- tion to junior high school. An additional benefit will be moving lower elementary pupils away from 54th St., the Central School location. Staff will play the division and relocation of educational equipment. site is the most convenient one. Coun. Ian Bennett said he found it difficult to understand that the airstrip was deemed unsuitable for paving but a new Highway 3 could be built in that area south of town to be used by 50 ton trucks. "It's a matter of said Coun. Phil Hodnett. Coun. Viens said it is the most logical site. Paving must be done, not gravelling and piling, and the town will have to commit itself to a portion of the costs. "If you move it and build a new one it is going to be said Coun. Bennett. Taber and Cardston got foot strips. That one is close to feet. We would lose 400 feet it would make some difference to the sort of plane that could use it." He said Taber's airstrip, cost originally and the cost has climbed to "They just applied for another to put in lights." The present airstrip here is lighted, council noted. A brand new strip would cost from to "if we can find a level piece of land to put one on." "This is the logical said Coun. Phil Hodnett. "During the war they flew planes for years and years. It's just a matter of enough bucks to get down there and make a runway." The application for the loan and grant will be mailed im- mediately, said Coun. Viens.
