RETURNS HOME NOBLEFORD (HNS) - Scott Hann has returned home after being a patient in a Lethbridge hospital for the past 10 days, Elk Valley landowners voice opposition Controversial bylaw unsettled NATAL (HNS) - Despite warnings any further delay in controlling development in the south-east corner of the province of B.C. will mean increased urban sprawl and deterioration of the beauty of the land. Directors of the Regional Disrict of East Kootenay have decided to have another meeting with the Elk Valley Land Protective Association before taking final FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! action on a zoning bylaw for the Upper Elk Valley. The zoning bylaw that was prepared by the RDEK and forwarded to the Minister of Municipal Affairs for approval by the Lieutenant - Governor in Council has been strongly opposed by landowners in the Elk Valley, who formed the Land Protective Association to organize their campaign against the bylaw. When the minister, Hon. Dan Campbell visited the East Koot-enays earlier this fall, he indicated that there will be zoning for the Upper Elk Valley, but he assured ranchers of the Association that he had not yet approved the bylaw as submitted, although he informed them that zoning is never final, it OPEN TONIGHT DON'T LOSE YOUR SHIRT ON YOUR INCOME TAX in Preparing your own tax rtturn isn't exactly a barrel of laughi.

Canada's largest Tax Service with ever 5000 offices in North America. 815 THIRD AVE. SOUTH 9-9 Weekdays, 9-5 Sat. - Phone 327-3712 I -NO APPOINTMENT NECISSARY-i can be changed at the discretion of the board on application by a landowner. The letter which accompanied the bylaw when it was returned to the RDEK office was read at the last board meeting. It said the department feels there should be more public meetings held on the bylaw so that it could be discussed and substantially increased support of it could be achieved. It said that unless suitable modifications were made, the department should be assured that it had won substantially increased public support. In any case, the minister asked that all non-urban areas be considered "develorp m e n t areas." That would mean that any application by a landowner would be considered by the board, which would decide whether or not to lift zoning and subdivision bylaws. The board's decision would rest on whether the owner's development plans were compatible with the general use of the area, and the developer would work under a development permit. A motion by the chairman of the board's planning committee, Andrew Rosicky, seconded by director J. Whiting, asked that the zoning bylaw changed with the inclusion of the development area regulations, be submitted to the minister again after another public hearing. The motion was based on the understanding that any changes which might result from discussions at the hearing could be incorporated in the bylaw before final reading, and a motion at the December meeting allowing action on the bylaw could has ten action on getting control of development of the valley. Such a motion must have ma jority support of Electoral Area directors before it can be voted on by the full board. Voting for the motion were directors Rosicky and Whiting. Director Chris Madson abstained, so was recorded as an affirmative vote. Voting against were directors R. Bradshaw, G. Fedor-ek and I. Sliarpc. Chairman Vince Downey broke the tie by voting against the motion. Opposition to the motion was based on the belief that any move that might indicate to the Elk Valley Protective Association that the board had already made up its mind on the bylaw would render discussion at a public hearing less effective than it might otherwise be. Some directors also felt that development in the Valley would be quite slow in midwinter, and a month's delay would be worth any co-operation that might be garnered from the Association. FREEZE SOUGHT However, concern about the continuing development in the Upper Elk Valley, as well as strip development along the highway in an adjacent area, for which a zoning plan is now being prepared, prompted director Earl Tabor of Sparwood to move that the board ask the Minister to freeze the area for further development until bylaws for the area from Elko to the Elk Lakes could be passed. The motion was seconded by director Rosicky. Director Tabor says that development which would be contrary to the bylaw that the board supports is going on every day, and every day of delay allows more of it. RDEK administrator Frank Bertoia in reviewing the situation that now exists, with no zoning bylaw in- effect, said that applications are coming in all the time for permits to build along the highway, particularly between Sparwood and Morris-sey, and up the Valley. Under the bylaw, the land would be used to farming, and the smallest lot would be 80 acres. During December, a building permit was issued to Sulphur Springs Development Company for a 56-unit mobile home park awl a subsequent resort area. The permit had to be allowed because there is no zoning by law to prevent it, but already costs of administration for the area are up, because a school bus will have to be provided for the children there, a garage dump planned for Elkford may have to be relocated, and so on Everytime you drive up the valley, there are more build ings along the side of the road, Mr, Bertoia said, > Regional district files brief NATAL (HNS) - A request for support of a brief opposing the granting of a charter to the Kootenay and Elk Railway was received and filed by the Regional District of East Kootenay. The Kootenay and Elk Railway is presently making submissions to the Canadian Railway Transport Commission for permission to transport coal to the border and onto rails of the Burlington Northern Railway for shipment to Roberts Bank. The Kootenay Boundary Regional District is submitting a brief which would oppose granting a license and would recommend upgrading of the Kettle Valley line of the CPR to provide an alternate route to Roberts Bank for B.C. and Alberta coal. If the Kootenay and Elk Rail way were granted a licence the brief suggests that it be only for coal that would be sold in the United States. It also suggests that the CNR be encouraged to build a line in competition to the CPR. The RDEK board felt it could not support the brief. It ha earlier refused to endors briefs. 'It passing, it came out that several Directors believe the CPR Kettle Valley line could not provide an economic alternative to the present line used by the CPR for coal shipment, primarily because of the cost of replacing numerous wood trestles.
