Call 32S41M development if it were on dry land But the concrete plant who sold his three businesses five years ago to Manmx Co of Calgary and now says man can't is appealing the coun- ty's decision that his land four miles east of town on the old Coaldale Road should be used only for farming He's appealing the county's decision Tuesday before the Provincial Planning but the talking will be done by his Frank former city solicitor for the City of Calgary He says county councillors are generally unsympathetic with his and ORRPC planners less sympathetic than the county. one Reeve Dick has even been out here to see my land and he was very says Mr Jarvie two councillors responsible for this Steve Slemko and John haven't been he adds The develdper even approached 19 neighbours for their approvals. The result said 'yes' Although he doesn't a 32-horse stable and in- door riding arena sits just north of the old farmhouse which developer Jarvie now calls his office. The recreational flavor of his proposed development is already established Ranchland Recreation is designed for horse-lovers. Crippled in a motorcycle acci- dent in Britain during the Se- cond World the doughty vet recently climbed on a horse for the first time since the accident Shortly after he bought the farm he the need for horse riding facilities En- quiry after enquiry about Ranchland Recreation has convinced him a tremendous need for The five-year plan prepared by McLellan calls for a recreational club open to the equestrian townhouses for retired a swimming and fishing eight miles of treed riding and 116 residential lots Each 3 3-acre lot would have underground services and all-weather roads. The tentative price today for a Ranchland Recreation lot is But the longer the development waits for bless- ing from the more expensive it cost of putting in un- derground services has gone up in one Jar- vie says. His Calgary consulting firm says the theme of Ranchland Recreation is serve the need of a country residence wntre people can carry out activities which cannot be provided within an urban yet have the amenities of urban livfna In support of the the firm's brief says the current 80-acre minimum lot size for farmland being subdivided is responsible for taking agricultural land out of production than orderly as proposed For Ranchland Recreation would give serious riders the best facilities in western Canada Retired farmers could have the services offered by but live in a country setting. Families seeking a rural lifestyle could escape Lethbndge without leaving behind the city's conveniences The county and City of Lethbridge would have a recreational development of charge to and the area would have a uni- que tourist attraction for travelling horse buffs Mr. Jarvie admits he is in supporting community causes He's quick to point out that Ranchland Recreation isn't a scheme to make a fast since the sale of lots will pay for recreational facilities know this sort of thing is he says He says if his only con- sideration was to turn a quick profit could have put my money in the city WALTER KERBER photo Last grain train The last special unit grain tram left Lethbridge today for Vancouver carrying about bushels of export-ready wheat in 82 government-owned hopper cars. This train represents the last of about six million bushels of grain moved to export posi- tion from the Lethbridge Canadian Government El- evator during a six-month mass movement program. Disasters bylaw to be tested The disasters services bylaw which two aldermen obj'ected to at city council's last meeting comes up for third reading Monday Aid Steve Kotch and Aid Cam Barnes opposed third reading of the bylaw July which meant it had to be put over for two weeks to Monday's meeting. Aid Kotch said the bylaw put too much power in the hands of the mayor or deputy who under the can declare a local emergency Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff told council at its last meeting that the only power given the mayor or his designate is the right to declare an emergency Powers to deal with a disaster situation are given to he said. Sewage treatment is on agenda City council will be asked Monday to implement part of a proposed new sewage bylaw prior to passing the bylaw itself The set up by council to conduct negotiations with the nine ma- jor water using industries in the city on the new is recommending that sewage limits for new industries com- ing into the city be set now These limits are 300 parts per million suspended 300 ppm of biochemical ox- ygen demand and 100 ppm in effluent released into the city system Limits in the present bylaw adopted by council last year are 600 ppm suspended 500 ppm of BOD and 150 ppm of grease. The existing industries in the city will also be asked to reduce their effluents to the new limits over a period of five years under the proposed bylaw. New industries locating in the city would have to meet the limits right however The city has been told it will have to pay 100 per cent of sewage treatment plant ex- pansion costs if it does not re- quire industry to clean-up its own effluent.
