CALL OWEN AOENT8 FOR ALLIED VAN LINES Industrial development to be costly for city Total cost of developing 465 acres of north side land for industrial expansion is over five says a report going to city council Monday. The report projects revenue from sale of the land to industry during the 1975-79 period at for an approximate surplus of Revenue is based on an estimated average selling price of per acre spread over five years. According to a marketing study by city business development and public relations director Dennis the city can ex- pect to sell 65 acres to industrialists in 1975 and 100 acres per year from 1976 through 1979. Aldermen will be that the city faces an immediate problem in finding the necessary capital to get the development however. According to the will be needed this year and 1975 to initiate the pro- ject. After that it could be the report says. Council has already appealed to the provin- cial government for but while Premier Lougheed indicated during his June visit here that some assistance may be he has not been able to indicate the timing of the assistance. City Manager Allister Findlay says funds are not available from the usual source the Alberta Municipal Finance nor from existing city reserves or surplus accounts. Mr. Findlay is recommending a council committee be established to negotiate provin- cial government financing. Should the province refuse to finance ser- then every effort should be made to have them acquire the he said. There is also the mentioned in the report that private enterprise could assist in the development. According to Mr. some private developers have expressed interest in developing the industrial park. Council is faced with a fairly quick decision on the matter as the city's option to buy 206 acres in the heart of the proposed expansion area expires Oct. 15. Council .took a option on the land owned by Lethbridge Theatres Ltd. in offering to purchase the land at a total cost of including interest payments. At that total estimated cost of the project was put at million to million by council. Major cost component in the project is the servicing of the land. A study by Stanley Associates Engineering Ltd. of com- misioned by the city at a cost of up to puts the total cost of services at at today's prices. These include everything from electrical transmission storm and sanitary and water distribution to buffer strips and railroad street and surveys. The land envisioned for development is north of 9th Avenue N. to 26th Avenue N. and east of 28th Street N. to 43rd St. N. excluding the Palliser Distillery and CJOC Television properties. Council has already committed several thousand dollars to the project. The option fee on the Lethbridge Theatre land is non-recoverable and was budgeted for the consultant's report. In council agreed to pay out 000 to a special trust fund to the Lethbridge and Distrct Youth Recreation Association for relinquishing lease rights to 130 acres in the industrial expansion area. The headed by Reg leased the land in 1971 for a youth golf course which was never completed. Lethbridge population may hit by '94 It should be possible for the city to achieve a three per cent yearly growth bringing its population to 010 in in 1984 and by says a report to city council's Monday meeting. The report is from Dennis director of the city business development and public relations outlining the broad objectives of his department. He is asking that the report be adopted as a policy state- ment for the city development program. Mr. O'Connell says the department objectives broaden the tax base of the community so that we can afford to provide the amenities and programmes that make living in a com- munity a pleasurable ex- perience. provide an expanding number of jobs over a broad spectrum of so that the citizens of the community may have the maximum number of job opportunities available. tell the business com- munities through the world the kinds of investment oppor- tunities and living conditions that exist in and to maintain a close liaison with provincial and federal so that we can use government schemes. The policy statement arises from discussions in council in May concerning the department's role.
