Its staff planner, Alfred Mil- ler has prepared the bylaw strictly on the basis of good land use and conservation in Iho wida public Interest. RDEK approval Is required for any electoral area residen- tial development, though indus- trial development is subject only to RDEK certification and the proposal violates none of its existing bylaws. Three proposed developments were presented at the board meeting, and nona were ap- proved. Two will be given further consideration. Mr. Miller re- ported to the board a score of developers visit his office week- ly from the electoral areas seek- ing plan approval. Its Elk Valley zoning bylaw stirred up a hornet's nest with senior provincial government interference ranchers of when many starvation years pro- tested RDEK interference of subdivision plans which would put them aboard the real es- tate 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 Lihby pondage area, and Cranbrooi and Kimberley rural which may rouse similar furore from the highly articulate develop- ers. Rather than go through the Elk Valley searing again, the RDEK board has decided to rely more heavily on its tech- nical Planning Committee its letters patent allow. This appointed body of ex- perts on farmland, game land, water rights, and city civil en- gineering, school boards, muni- cipalities, highway engineer- ing, municipal finance, forestry and B.C. Hydro is appointed by the board, though some mem- bers arc from points as remote as Victoria, Kamloopa ana Kel- son outside HDEK bounds. Committee function is advis- ory 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. Staff of RDEK has recently been increased with naming of an administrative assistant, P. W. McKechnie, former Crcslon village clerk.
