Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Airport land wanted, for schools SPARWOOD (IMS) A spe- cial meeting was held recently by Fcrnie 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 [or edu- cational buildings. The two councils hope they can interest the EMord 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 J1 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. I met with the Fcniie council and advised council it requires 12 more acres for school sites.

Mayor Vernon Uphill said: "I would be glad to recommend to council that we turn it over as a site for the vocational school for if it would help gel it lo-1 cated here."
