Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 6, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Cranbrook council extends city limit CRANBROOK Cranbrook city council Tuesday accepted a development company's re- quest that more of its proper- ty be taken into the city. Tomka Holdings asked council to incorporate a piece of land the company owns south of the present city boun- dary, west of 14th Avenue South and 17th Street. Over Aid. Art Beresford's objections council voted to in- corporate the land. The land is adjacent to other Tomka land Cranbrook building slows CRANBROOK City building permits here were down 72 in 1974 compared to 1973 resulting in about less in city coffers. There were 284 permits issued in 1974 with an es- timated value of compared to 356 permits issued in 1973 worth about An all time record for building permits was set in Cranbrook in 1973. There were 195 housing un- its started in 1974 up two starts from 1973. Forty four new family rental home units financed by the federal and provincial government were started in the last two months. The three bedroom homes should be ready in February or March for families who qualify. The rents of the homes will be subsidized. Snowmobiles are problem at Coleman COLEMAN (C.NP Complaints that snow- mobiles are using Coleman town streets and alleys for joy rides has spurred council to enforce the bylaw. It makes it illegal to drive snowmobiles on town streets. Persons are allowed to use alleys to drive their snow- mobiles out of town limits by the shortest route possible. Curtis Whyte, represen- tative of the Economic Developers Alberta Trade and Commerce, advised council that officers from the Alberta Industry and Commerce would be in the Crowsnest Pass from Jan. 8-10 to discuss a regional development ser- vice program and how it relates to the town of Coleman. The Alberta Heart Founda- tion was given permission to hold a local canvass during the month of February. Water analysis reports taken Nov. 25 and Dec. 2nd in- dicated there was no bacterial contamination in the Coleman water supply. Council will review the rules and regulations of the Coleman Gas Company. council recently voted to in- corporate. After council meeting Aid. Beresford said he objected to the incorporation "because it's a piecemeal deal I don't like doing things in drips and drabs." Aid. Beresford said the city should not incorporate land simply at a developer's re- quest. The land in question is va- cant but the company ap- parently plans to develop it and wants city services available. The Tomka proper- ty council previously voted to incorporate contains a sub- division in which lots have been sold and individual owners are ready to build. But owners had been unable to obtain regiona'l district building permits because the subdivision did not conform to regional zoning by laws. When the incorporation is complete and city services are available, subdivision owners will be able to build. Aid. Beresford said it was necessary to incorporate the subdivision to help the developer and individual builder with a problem that was not their fault. "If somebody's got into a bind I don't mind going along with helping them he said. But other than this kind of problem he wants the city's boundaries extended in an orderly fashion. Tomka "should wait like everyone else Has to" for a major plann- ed extension, he said. Aid. Steph Atchison dis- agrees. Council's action "is probably the best way to ex- tend boundaries when people or a person wants to come into the city." People are happier if boun- dary extensions are up to them rather than at council's initiative. Aid. Beresford had a good argument, he said, "but there are more reasons why we should take it in than why we shouldn't." Although council has stated its perference, it will be some time before the boundaries are actually extended. The city must now ask the provincial government for permission to go ahead with the extension and if the government agrees, must hold public hearings and advertise the extension. Taber has distemper outbreak TABER A high incidence of distemper among dogs in the Taber Vauxhall area has been reported by the veterinary clinics here. Although the disease usually affects dogs under six months old, a number of older dogs have contracted the disease in the past few months, a veterinary spokesman said. This would indicate the level of infection is quite high in this area. Symptoms of the disease are running eyes and nose, vomiting and diarrhea. Dog owners are urged to have their dogs vaccinated or to get a booster shot if they were vaccinated more than a year ago. South In short Agricultural society Tuesday PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) The next meeting of the agricultural society will be held here Tuesday.

Under an existing agreement with Calgary Power Ltd., the lights will be disconnected on the Jan. 10 cut off date, then reactivated one month later for two weeks duration.

MP may change motor ban allowing electric kickers CRANBROOK Okanagan Kootenay MP Howard Johnston is investigating the possibility of changing federal government regulations regarding the ban of motor boats from lakes. The regulations under the Canada Shipping Act ban all power boats from lakes, without taking into considera- tion the low powered, non polluting electric motors. The Regional District of East Kootenay and some lake side residents have made applications to have motor boats banned from a number of East Kootenay lakes. However, the RDEK and residents are not opposed to allowing electric powered boats to be used. The RDEK asked Johnston to see if a little more flexibili- ty could not be added to the "all or nothing" legislation. Crows Nest Industries has called on the services of a land use consultant before making any committment to lease land to the Regional District of East Kootenay. The Elko area company ac- quired several thousands of acres of land years ago which, being privately owned, is not available for public use. The regional district asked the company if it would lease some property in the Emerald or Grave Lake area to the RDEK which could be developed for park purposes. CNI has called on the land use consultant to make a report before responding to the RDEK request. RDEK directors and representatives of the federal ministry of transport will meet Jan. 10 to discuss small regional airports as a new function for the regional dis- trict. The meeting follows a re- quest made earlier this year, by the RDEK, to investigate the possibilities of assuming the role of regional airport operators. The new function would make the RDEK the ad- ministrators of small regional airports such as the Invermere airport. It would also give it authority to develop new air facilities. One of the first areas being considered for new airport facilities is the Crows Nest Pass area. Among those to attend the January meeting will be directors from Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford and Invermere and from electoral areas A, F, and G. Representing the ministry of transport will be C- H. Rhodes. The residents of the Lazy Lake area have made tion to the Fish and Wildlife branch to have a six mile per hour speed limit on the lake. Thirty of the 39 residents around the lake signed a peti- tion calling for the speed limitations. The six mph regulations would prevent any water ski- ing on Lazy Lake and keep it free for fishing purposes. The RDEK is expected to meet early in February with Bill Lane and other members of the BC Land Commission to discuss the agricultural land reserve for the East Kootenay. The meeting was to be held in October but it has been postponed monthly, with the new date now set for the first week of February. Because of the special con- siderations in the East Kootenay and other concerns of the regional board, the RDEK asked for the meeting, before the final reserve designations are made by the Commission. The RDEK Technical and Planning committee has selected two possible routes for the proposed BC Hydro 500 KV transmission line which will run south from Nicola, through the Okanagan and into the East Kootenay. After considering several possibilities presented by BC Hydro at a meeting in November, the TPC recommended two routes to the RDEK board. With the transmission line expected to enter the East Kootenay from the Creston Valley area, the first route selected by the TPC would take the hydro line along the same path as the present 230 KV line. This route is along the Moyie River, passing just south of Cranbrook, ter- minating at the Cranbrook hydro substation. Libraries throughout the region will receive another from the regional government, while the remaining funds will be spent on street lighting, home nurs- ing services and work and im- provement in the Lazy Lake area. The biggest chunk of revenue for the regional government will come from other local governments (municipalities and specified areas) totaling Another will come from federal and provincial governments, while such remaining revenue sources as grants, licences, permits and rentals will provide the es- timated income. The preliminary budget is only a tentative proposal and is subject to change by the regional board. Directors will review the estimates before striking the final budget for the year in early spring. Mail service extension explored TABER (HNS) The possibility of initiating mail delivery service in Taber and the surrounding district is be- ing explored by the Taber Chamber of Commerce. Inquiries have been made to post office officials in Calgary as to the requirements for in- stituting such postal delivery systems. About eight years ago, the Chamber requested urban mail delivery to homes and businesses, but was told the density of residential construction would not sup- port the service. Since that time, vacant residential areas have been filled, and it is hoped the proposition will receive a more favorable reception by postal officials. It is understock that rural mail delivery requires a peti- tion from residents on propos- ed routes, but confirmation of details are required before further action can be taken on the local level.
