Steps Taken To Rezone Drive For High Density Dev By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter City council intends to change the zoning bylaw to al- low higher density standards along Mayor Magrnth Drive, opening the way for high-rise commercial development on the strip. A resolution authorizing the preparation of such an amend- ment was passed at a special meeting of council Tuesday af- ternoon. All commercial de- velopment allowed miller the amended bylaw would be class- ified as conditionally permis- sible. The special session was call- ed to discuss reports on a pro- posed 10-storey motel adjacent to Mayor Magrath Drive. Coun- cil had held some discussion on the reports at Monday's regu- lar meeting, but decided that a further session would allow more time for talks with the authors of the reports. The meeting also was Intend- ed as an opportunity for gen- eral discussions on Mayor Ma- grath Drive as a whole. Aid. Jim Anderson, the only council member who opposed the resolution, asked Erwin Ad- der ley, the city's director of planning, if the city was still trying to maintain the open, spacious feeling that has long been associated with the Drive. Mr. Adderley replied that it was, and that it was this aspect of the Drive that has caused much favorable comment and been responsible for bringing new developments to the city. Aid. Anderson said that fiigh-rise apartments or motels Manager Due Here Deputy Mayor Rex Little said today Lethbridge's new city manager has definitely ac- cepted the position aixl will be in the city before Aug. 1. Mr. Little said all. .recent questions concerning the condi- tions of employment had been cleared up in a phone call to Thomas Nutting of Blooming- ton, Minnesota last night. Council met in closed session both Monday and Tuesday to consider the appointment of a city manager. Following Tuesday night's meeting a resolution was passed that Mi-. Nutting be informed that council was unable to change any conditions of em- ployment as they presently exist. The resolution also stated that Mr. Nutting would be in- formed that, in accordance with a letter to Mayor Andy Anderson, he would be allowed to withdraw his acceptance of the position. No details of the private let- ter to Mayor Anderson have been released. Deputy Mayor Little, who chaired Tuesday's meeting in the mayor's ab- sence, said the entire matter was a misunderstanding that has now been resolved. Mr. Nutting, currently dep- uty city manager of Blooming- ton, was offered the Lethbridge job March 9, at a salary of a year.

Vcra Ferguson noted that "We 'nave got to get into esthetics; this is what the dis- cussion is all about."

An- derson said that he did not in- tend any reflection on the cur- rent board of directors of the club. He emphasized that the pub- lic, as measured by the reac- tion received by aldermen, is most disturbed by the golf situ- ation in Lethbridge, particular- ly in reference to the Hender- son Lake Golf Club The views that have been ex- pressed to Aid. Anderson are listed in the statement as fol- lows: The public believes the club is, in fact, attempting to elimin- ate the casual golfer. They see the raised fees as being de- signed for tliis purpose. The club has built an opera- tion better than the average in- come golfer either needs or can afford. That because the land on which the club is located is Arbitration Set For Firefighters An arbitration board sitting in Lethbridge has been sched- uled for June 8-10 to settle a wage dispute between the city and Local 237 of the Interna- tional Association of Firefight- ers.
