There were 359,076 cars registered through the park gates in 1970, up from 275,785 in 1969. July was the busiest month last year with 130,793 cars, carrying 453,335 people, who visited the park. January was the slowest month when only 82 cars and 281 visitors entered the park. Campgrounds in the park were busy last year, with 86,934 tenters and 170,968 trailers and pickup campers registered. There were also 23,415 picnickers. Opposition to a high-rise hotel in Shoppers' World apparently is going right down to the wire. Residents of the Glendale area east of the site 'mve voiced opposition to the proposed development at a series of public hearings related to various aspects of the project. Further protests have been received by city council and will be considered tonight when council holds public hearings on the closing of a lane and rezoning of two residential lots. Both are north of the site and are to become part of the parking lot for the hotel complex. The public hearings are part of the process of passing the necessary bylaws. Both have been given first reading and may be given second and third readings tonight. One letter, containing three signatures, has been received protesting the closing of the lane. A letter with 13 sipa-tures opposes the rezoning of the two lots from residential to commercial use. Another letter has one signature. The first letter calls the rezoning a "breach of trust" on the part of city council. It says residents of the area have beautified their property and wish to "live conveniently close to schools in relative peace." The $2hb million hotel, to be built by developer Art Batty, has been approved by the Municipal Planning Commission and an appeal against its decision has been dismissed. Mr. Batty has said construction is expected to start in March. Another topic that has been the subject of public debate- the city's sewage service charge bylaw-is also on the council agenda. The bylaw sets the domestic rate at $2 a month per residence (about 20 cents per 100 cubic feet of water used) and the industrial and commercial charge at 13 cents per 100 cubic feet. Industries would also pay a surcharge for strong wastes. In addition, about $190,000 a year would be generated through a tax levy of about 1.5 mills. City Manager Tom Nutting has recommended that the bylaw be adopted no later than Author to visit university Robert Kroetsch, winner of the 1969 Governor General's Award for his novel, The Studhorse" Man, will visit the University of Lethbridge Wednesday and Thursday. Professor Kroetsch, professor of English at the State University of New York, will present a public address, The Canadian Writer in the American Tradition, at 3 p.m. Wednesday in the lecture theatre of the Science Building. He will read informally from published and unpublished works and discuss his writings on Thursday at 1 p.m. in the faculty lounge of the Science Building. Professor Kroetch, 43, was bom in Heisler, Alberta. February, in order to give industries time to install' pre-i treatment facilities before the new secondary sewage treatment plant opens next fall. Mr, Nutting will also recommend that a meeting be hold In February to discuss adoption of the city's new fire bylaw. He suggests that all sections of the bylaw pertaining to outside burning be removed and considered separately, possibly as a separate bylaw governing all open air burning and air pollution from all sources. Separate consideration of this part of the bylaw may be required, he says, because of the probable length of time it will take for council debate and public discussion on the matter. Council already has received some letters from the public, both for and against the proposed banning of burning barrels. Four letters included in the agenda for tonight's meeting all support the banning. Also on the agenda is a report from Mr. Nutting on the feasibility of the city becoming involved ki building a new ice skating facility. The city has been approached by the Lethbridge and District Exhibition Board to share in the construction of a proposed $1.5 million facility on the exhibition grounds. The report by Mr. Nutting indicates this may be feasible if the capital costs are offset by federal gov- ernment grants. Another possibility, he says, is an arena on the Lethbridge Community College campus, built jointly by the college and the city. LDS OFFICIAL - Elder LeGrand Richards, a mem* ber of the Council of Twelve Apostles of the LDS Church, will be in the city Friday and Saturday. He will speak at a public meeting in the new LDS stake centre, 28th St. and Scenic Drive, at 8 p.m. Friday and will addresr LDS youth of southern Alberta at a special meeting Saturday at 8 a.m., also in the stake centre.
