City to encourage South Lakeview development The City of Lethbridge ap- parently i n t e nds to provide some motivation for the de- velopment of the south Lake- view area. City council tonight will deal with a finance committee rec- ommendation that sets out a schedule of reduced servicing charges for specific areas in south Lakeview. The reduced rate would "cre- ate a positive inducement" to pay up servicing charges so Bill Dickie to speak at nomination meet Bill Dickie, Progressive Con- servative MLA for Calgary Glemore, will be guest speaker Wednesday at the party's nom- ination meeting for the Leth- bridge West riding.

ROD IS AT DRAFHN'S DOWNTOWN 327-3364 the city will have sufficient funds to continue installation of services in that area. The situation is a com- plicated one. Many of the lots that have been s61d and front- age charges paid at the old rate of per front foot are separated from unsold lots, leaving the city with not enough funds to complete ser- vicing. Some home owners whose frontage charges have been paid have waited several years Eor improvements such as paved streets. The proposed solution is to delineate three areas, each with a different per front foot rate. One area, in which partial servicing has already been in- stalled, will have a period of grace Aug. 3 to Aug. w h i c h to pay at per front foot. Areas in which there is a plan of subdivision but no ser- vices other than truck connec- tions would have until Sept. 3, to pay at a rate of per friont foot. Owners of raw land would have until Sept. 3, to enter into an agreement with the city un- der which they would apply for subdivision immediately and begin development not later than June 30, 1972. The charge for services would be per front foot. All subdivisions that are now covered by a specific agree- ment on servicing procedures would be exempt from these recommendations. The standard rate for ser- vices is per front foot, re- cently raised to that figure from St. John returns 'insult9 St. John Ambulance has returned the grant it received from the city, terming the amount an insult. A grant of had been requested by St. John Ambulance, but council re- duced the amount to Grants for a number of voluntary agencies were re- duced or eliminated by council this year. A letter from St. John Ambulance signed by Stan Coxson accompanying the returned cheque reads in part. "We do not intend to beg, and if the city is not interested, then we will allow the responsibility to fall right where it should be, right back to the city alderman who made the decision. "We therefore are returning your cheque of as we feel we are being in- sulted by offering us nothing." City council Monday will also consider a notice of motion by Aid. Vaughan Hembroff that council adopt a policy refusing operating grants to all charitable and cultural organizations, effective Aug. 1. Early closing bylaw becomes issue again Lethbridge's early closing by- law, regulating shopping hours, has again become an issue in the city. John Loewen, store manager for Simpsons Sears in Centre Village Mall, will appear before city council tonight to discuss the closing bylaw. Mr. Loewen told The Herald the bylaw should be thrown out and each store allowed to set its own hours. He said enforce- ment of the present bylaw was impossible (many stores are currently breaking it regularly) and modifications would make it too unwieldy. If the bylaw is abolished, Simpsons-Scars would probably stay open Wednesday after- noons and institute more shop- ping hours before Christmas, he said. The closing bylaw became an issue just before Christmas last year when the larger stores spearheaded a move for in- creased night shopping, but no changes were made at that time. A letter from 0ty Manager Tom Nutting indicates action on a park for motorized re- creation vehicles my be forth- coming in the not-too-distant fu- ture. Two areas are under active consideration one in the coulees above the city power plant, the other in the "V" formed by the split in the Highway 3, western approach to the city. Mr. Nutting says more speci- fic recommendations may be made following a public meet- ing on the matter at the Civic Sports Centre Tuesday night. Council will also have before it a recommendation from the finance committee that tie city undertake a study the cen- tral business district at a cost of between and To be done by Interform Planning and Design Ltd. of Calgary, the study would in- clude the possibility of a govern- ment complex centre in the downtown ar'ea. Mayor Andy Anderson and Al- derman Camm Barnes are rec- ommended appointees to a small committee to work with the firm for periodic evaluation of data collected in ttie study. The city and Interform are also presenting a community improvement film. Townscape Rediscovered, at the Yates Memorial Centre at 7 p.m. to- day. The city's finance committee is recommending city council refuse a recommendation of the Municipal Planning Commis- sion that a fee schedule be charged for rezoning which in- creases the density or value of property. Instead, the finance commit- :ee suggests council sponsor a resolution to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association re- questing the provincial govern- ment deal with the question. The MFC had recommended a fee be charged for upward re- zoning to help prevent specula- tion without development, and to help pay for increased ser- vicing costs. THE PARTY'S OVER for this year's Whoop-Up cele- nailed shut, the coffee house is again just another big brat ions. All those wild rides and bright lights have room and the grounds are strewn with papers and been packed into vans, waiting to take the midway to garbage, until the fair ground attendants clean up the the next exhibition. The booths have been emptied and mess. Severed body found in rail yard Lethbridge city police have released the name of the man found dead in the CP Rail yard Saturday night.
