TYPEWRITERS Central School site suggested for senior citizens' housing By RICHARD BURKE Herald Start Writer A high-rise senior citizens' housing complex could be ready for occupancy near the Central School site uiihin a year and a half. The prospects of the project going on the facing Ave. S. between 6th and St. were brought up Wednes- day by Waller de Silvia of Cen- tral .Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration when he met local housing committee repre- sentatives. The location is one of at least two sites being considered for estimated SI million, 75- unit building. An area north of 4th Ave. S. in the second re- development stage is also a possible site. Mr. de Silvia said the Central School site would be ideal for a senior citizen's home because of its close prosimity to such sen-ices as the new library, the VMCA. the curling rink arid the downtown business district. Since the city owns the land, could be developed within a short period of time and con- struction could begin by May. he said. At the other site, however, construction could be delayed considerably simply by the red taps involved wiih redevelop- ment schemes. order to approve a pro- ject in that area we would have lo know what will be built around the project. Surround- ing uses must be compatible with senior citizen's Mr. ds Silvia said. No plans have been made yet for the use of land in the second redevelopmen: area and would Lake at least three months to complete. LETrrence Smith, planning director said. Tentative plans are fcr the building to be five storeys high Mayor Andy Anderson said he does "not object to having ihe senior citizen's home on the central school site. The matter o! public housing lor low income families also came up and Mr. de Silvia said he approves of the chosen for that project. Two lots have been set aside, but not approved by ci'.y coun- cil, on 18th Ave. N. between 18th and 20'.h St. The Albena Housing Corpor- ation, who plans both the sen- ior citizens "and public housing projects, has recommended coi- 30 public housing traits be built. Schmidt criticizes tax plan The Lougheed government's property tax reduction plan is nothing more than "a master- ful public relations the Lethbridge candidate for the Social Credit Party leadership said Wednesday. "The announced policy doss not come to grips with the major problems of provincial- municipal fiscal Werner Schmidt said in a state- ment telephoned from Calgary where he was meeting the party caucus. Neither does it come to grips with certain urban problems such as housing and transpor- tation. Mr. Schmidt, who i? rice-president of the Lethbridge Community College, said. It is also '-a threat lo local autonomy by telling municipal governments ho-.v to spend their be said. "The rebate is inequitable in that homeowners get a maxi- mum of T216 and renters a maximum of S100.1' Mr. Schmidt said. 'Tnerc is no re- lationship between the amoun! of rebale and the total lax or rent paid. "The new tax system does not relieve the taxpayer of pay- ing the education tax. The re- bate is nothing more than an extension of the homeonner grant." All in all. the Progressive Conservative government's pol- icy "must be recognized as a masterful public relations job created to mske believe thst it was some great solution to many financial problems for Albertans.1' he said.
