Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Airport land wanted {or schools SPARWOOD (HNS) A spe- cial meeting was held recently by Fernie and District of Spar- w o o d councils to discuss the site for a new airport. The old Fernie airport Is con- sidered a potential site for edu- cational buildings. The two councils hope they can interest the Elkford council in the airport, at least as far as support is concerned in dealing with the federal department of transport. The site under consideration Is located about 11 miles west of Sparwood. The land is owned by Crows Nest Industries and must be owned by the municipalities in- volved before it can be ap- proved for grant purposes by DoT. The Fernie airport can ac- commodate small planes only and emergency landings. How- ever, the 200 by strip proposed for the five-mile stretch, subject to approval by the DoT, would cater to larger craft and conceivably to sched- uled air service. There are three proposals for use of the old airport. School district No. 1 met with the Fernie council and advisee council it requires 12 more acres for school sites. A developer wants a portion for new homes and the Fernie board of trade is eyeing it as a site for a provincial voca- tional school. Mayor Vernon Uphill said: "I would be glad to recommend to council that we turn it over as a site for the vocational schoo for if it would help get it lo- j cated here." tolurdoy, July I, 1971 THE LETHMIDCt HERAID 3 FIRST CONTRIBUTION-Eugene Rojek of Blairmore president of the Polish Combatants Branch No. 22, presents Mel Cornett, chairman of the Crowsnest Pass General Hospital Board, with a cheque to be used of the discretion of the board towards some item for the new senior citizens home and nursing complex 10 be built adjacent to the hospital, tooking on is George Siska, business manager of the hospital.

By MOU.Y LATKA Herald News Service SPARWOOD The Regional District of East Kootenay will not be hurried in its considera- tion of subdivision plans which do not meet its regulations. Sub dividers, whose applica- tions have been denied by re- gional planner Alfred Miller and who then go to the RDEK board for special dispensation, are complaining about the length of time it takes to get a final decision. Complaints come thick and fast in the spring. Subdivides, anticipating a change of deci- sion from the board, want to able to get out and work. The RDEK board has made it a practice to refer such ap- plications to its technical plan- ning committee for study and a report before it makes any de- cision about allowing the breaking of its subdivision or zoning bylaws. Until recently the TCP met only four times a jcar An ap- plication that was "awkward- ly" timed would have slow go- ing The KDEK board meets once month. Allowing a recommendation of its administrator, Frank Bertoia, and planner the board decided it would not properly omit referral to its TPC. How- ever, it expects that body, made up of technical people from most of the provincial government departments, will meet at least every two months, and more often as the volume of its business in- creases. For "extreme" cases a spe- cial meeting will be called. Because a number of the TPC members come from Nel- son, it is not as easy as it could be to call a meeting. The decision about how to handle the special applications was not much help to Albert Holmes, one of Hie owners of the Holmcs-Kahn subdivision northwest of Cranbrook, who appeared at the recent meet- ing. Although he had the full sym- pathy of the board, in that his application to subdivide a par- cel of land across the road from the present subdivision just missed the last meeting of the TCP and could, with the summer schedule, be delayed until September, no more could be promised than that lie TPC would consider his plan when it meets July 19. Mr. Holmes pointed out that, although the road into the pro- posed area could not be finish- ed this year, brush clearing and piling for burning could be done if the company knew that it could go ahead. A decision would also allow his company to know whether it could hire year-round help in w o r k integrated with Christ- mas tree farming. In Ms report, Mr. Miller told the board that 83 applications to subdivide property were re- ceived during the past six months. Nearly half of them, 38, were in the electoral area sur- rounding Cranbrook. Seven were in the Elk Valley area, seven in the South Country, 11 around Kimberley, 14 around Canal Flats and Inverrnere, and six around Radium. Of the 83. 16 were denied by the planning department, and three have already been refer- red to the TPC.

The bus will leave the John Davidson School. doubt about the land control, letters joined a number of others that have been received time to time asking for some speed in getting zoning bylaws passed for specific areas. Both letters wanted zoning as soon as possible in t h e Inver- mere area. Bylaws prepared for that area and five others will go lo :he July meeting of the TPC be- :ore returning to the board for the first two meetings. The other five areas are those surrounding Fernie, Fort Steele and vicinity, the Flathead, Wilmer and Wycliffe and vicin- ity. The zoning maps had already passed TPC and board approv- al and were introduced for first two readings, ready for public hearing. One is for the Cran- brook extra-municipal area, the other for Radium-Dry Gulch. Dates for the hearings have not yet been set, but Mr. Miller and Mr. Bertoia will sit with chairman Vince Downey and director Don Sherling for the Cranbrook hearing, and with director Chris Madson, In- vermere's mayor Roy Lakes, and director W. W. Agnew for the Radium hearing.
