Drive Ph. 328-7751 Tudor Estate proposal turned down by MFC By MYRON JOHNSON Staff Writer The Municipal Planning Com- mission Wednesday recom- mended refusal of the 80-acre Tudor Estate subdivision pro- posal. The developers were seeking approval in principle for a sub- divison which would incorpor- ate part of the coulee area northwest of the Lethbridge Community College. The proposal was refused for a number of reasons, including possible servicing problems, access difficulties, and lack of economic benefits foreseen for either the city or the develop- ers. However the MFC recom- mended approval of a subdivi- sion plan in south Lethbridge for low-cost rental housing units. The specific development plan must still be approved. Developer Holger Frandsen plans to build 33 low-cost ren- tal town-house units under the limited development scheme on the site- An application for a grocery store at 2004 Mayor Magrath Drive by Dr. W. L. Mitson was tabled by the MFC to give the developer an opportunity to consult with city hall staff. Df. Mitson has made two ap- plications for developments on the site, one for the grocery store, and one for a larger com plex including the store. Both are currently before the MFC Dr. Mi'son is expected to at- tempt to resolve a number of problems surrounding the appli- cations with city hall staff be- fore proceeding with one or the other application. In other business, the MFC refused an application by P and M.

"We are aiming at plus people and with this dis- play there is something for all of them." Mr. Chessor said people can see animals in their natural state which they have only read about before. "All the exotic breeds are on display and it is a chance for the public to have a look at them- "The s'ame applies to shee] and hogs and all the animal are shown in various stages o development." The animals are all placet into categories in separate pen: for the public to view from al angles. The other part of the experi ment demonstrates to people the various stages of develop- ment right from the animals in infancy through the adult stage to the finished product available for the table. In a monumental feat of or- ganization, the committee re- sponsible for the project has arranged displays which depict all the areas of the livestock justness. There is a sheep shearing demonstration slated for several .imes during the day. Desmond De Belle of Australia has been lired to do the demonstrating. Having a fast time of about me minute and averaging 3% minutes, he shows the public what happens when a sheep is shorn. With experience in New Zea- and, Australia, Britain, France, he United States and Canada, ic makes it look simple. There is a hog selling telex ;ystem working in one part of he pavilion. For the more commercial end rf display, there is a dairy ection set up on the west side, ncluding the Alberta Dairy Princess. A complete line of dairy pro- nets, including the old fash- oned churning of butter and naking of ice cream is on dis- tlay, with samples for the fair- fling public.
