Picture Butte residents claim taxes are too high PICTURE BUTTE (HNS) At the recent meeting of the Picture Bulte town council, a delegation representing the res- idents of Rogers Ave. met with the council to protest the asses- ment of 60 cents per foot front- age for the paving that was dona on Rogers Ave. In 1971.

Its staff planner, Alfred Miller has prepared the bylaw strictly on tha basis of good land use and conservation in th o wida public interest. RDEK approval is required for any electoral area residential development, though industrial development is subject only to HDEK certification and the proposal violates none of its existing bylaws. Three proposed developments were presented at the board meeting, and nona were approved. Two wiU be given further consideration. Mr. Miller reported to the board a score of developers visit his office weekly from the electoral areas seeking plan approval. Its Elk Valley zoning bylaw stirred up a hornet's nest on zoni senior provincial government nterference when starvation ranchers of many years protested RDEK interference of subdivision plans which would put them aboard the real estate bandwagon. The altered bylaw, somewhat relaxed, and the Wasa District bylaw for zoning, are the only two so far in operation. Not yet enacted is the Libby pondage area, and Cranbrooi and Kimberley rural which may rouse similar furore from the highly articulato developers. Rather than go through the Elk Valley searing again, the RDEK board has decided to rely more heavily on its technical Planning Committee its letters patent allow. This appointed body of experts on farmland, game land, water rights, and city civil engineering, school boards, municipalities, highway engineering, municipal finance, forestry and B.C. Hydro is appointed by the board, though some members arc from points as bylaw as Victoria, Kamloops and Nelson outside RDEK bounds. Committee function is advisory only when asked by the board, and its are difficult to assemble. However RDEK board which is entirely laymen of varying interests may in future refer all subdivision applications to this body for decision.
