George Naoum, manager of the con- sulting group that designed the ice facility, admitted that time had been very short in the preparation of plans and more figures would be available for the next meeting of council.

Kergan, honored By MYRON JOHNSON Staff Writer City council refused Monday to commit itself on a proposed private subdivision de- velopment in west Lethbridge, although the developers were informed that the present policy of council is that city land should be given priority in ser- vicing. Westview Investments Co., a partnership of 63 businessmen would like to develop a parcel ot land, largely for single fam- ily homes, along the coulee just northwest of the new university property. Ther'e are no subdivisions llrclt: west of the river at present, al- though the city has plans to de- velop some of its own land near the Westview holdings.

Although everyone on council agreed the three agencies the Victorian Order of Nurses, the Canadian Mental Health As- sociation, and the Salvation Army are worthwhile organ- izations, a majority of alder- men felt the money to keep them operating should not come from city funds.

If the Westview study is un- dertaken, it would also examine 'the housing strategy current- y being employed by the city n developing its land in west Lethbridge to determine if, with the introduction of private _ de- velopment, tliis stategy might be improved upon."
