Seek Road Access Cenotaph Discussion Aborted By ROSS GIBJI Herald News Service TABER The recurren question of moving the Roya Canadian Legion cenotaph and related equipment from the town's triangular park to a lo- cation north of the administra tion building in Confederation Park was before the town coun cil again but no action was taken. Six members of Taber Retai Merchants Association, headed by president Hardin Atfcin re- quested relocation, of the mon ument to vacate the present location in favor of much need ed additional customer park- Mr. Atkin told the counci that this consensus was reach- ed at a well attended meeting of the association and that Le- gion officials were not unfavor- able to the move. He said that the association would bear the expense of the move provided the town laid down the supporting founda- tions. The delegation, he said, was prepared to remain at the meeting until council came up with a decision. .However, with councillors Gough and Pollard not in at- tendance, and knowing their strong feelings on the matter, Mayor Arthur H. Avery, sup- ported by councillor Gordon W. Oddie and others, refused to discuss the proposition. Tile delegation accepted the ruling but will be back when the full council considers the matter, possibly two weeks hence. The delegation further rec- ommended that further side- walk replacement in the busi- ness area be made 18 inches to two feet narrower, from 10 to eight feet in width, to widen the streets in order to maintain angle parking. It was indicated that moving the new light standards might not be required, though these projecting islands would con- stitute a traffic hazard. No ac- tion was taken on the recom- mendation which .was intended to spell the death of potential parallel parking "which the underground threatens is being revived." The merchants' committee expressed some urgency in both recommendations. H o w- ever, members of council said that 1970 funds are already al- located, and it would be next year before any positive action could be taken. By UOSS GIBB Herald News Service TABER Town council will continue its efforts to obtain a proper access south from High- way 3 to commercial develop- ment property in a 130 acre tract of land recently annexed to the town's west boundary and abutting Highway 36. Council considered corres- pondence from Highways Min- ister Taylor and deputy minis- ter L. II. McManus, in which an exit from the east bound traffic lane was authorized, but in which crossing the green strip median to give exit for west bound traffic was fused. Lack of exit and access foi west bound travellers to anc from the proposed motel de vclopment would require sucl traffic 'to make U-turns at 50tl St. and the Highway 36 intc' section. Council agreed a median crossing with turning "lanes would create less a traffic safety hazard that making U- turns at quarter mile distani existing intersections, and thai 90 per cent of tourist traffic would likely not make the turn and would proceed on to Leth- bridge. Proceeding in an orderly manner, the council directec that a plan of the proposed ac- cess and turning lanes be pre- pared for presentation for sup- port at Wednesday's meeting of the Oldman River Region Planning Commission, along with copies of correspondence received. Council was also disturbed iy the highways department's determination to retain control of the highway .through Taber, having quoted chapter and verse of current legislation sup- porting this determination. Council agreed to negotiate further with the developer of the privately owned land, Nor- man A. Long, regarding pay- ment for the road construction which town superinten dent Bent N. Madsen said could cost up to and which the de- lartment had indicated no fi- lancial assistance.
