MFC meets An application to operate n day-care centre at Flcclwood- B a w (1 c ii Elementary School and the old Central School dur- ing the summer was tabled Wednesday by the Municipal Planning Commission. The application was made by a group of students seeking a grant under the federal oppor- tunities for youth program. A spokesman for the yroiip told the commision 10 students plan to run a day-care centre free of charge, to accommodate between 30 and 60 children whose parents are full-time stu- dents working during the sum- mer. Permission is needed from the city manager lo use Cen- tral School, and the public school board to use Fleelwood- Bawden, and also from the pro- vincial department of social de- velopment before the MPC will approve the application. Certificates from the Health Unit and fire inspector arc also necessary' before the project is approved by the MFC, Because Central School does not meet fire regulations, the facility is inadequate for use as day care centre, the commis- sion said. Flcehvood-Bawdcn would be appropriate for such use, however, with school board permission. On another matter, the com- mission turned down an appli- cation to subdivide 10 acres of Jartd south of 20th Ave. S. and cast of College Mall. Randy Holfeld, engineering director, said plans for (he sub- division have been submitted several times and each time standards of development have been downgraded. The proposed subdivision "does a lot of things which are he said. "We have to either pun the plug or ac- cept the downgrade of stan- dards." The applicant, Frandsen De- velopments, had asked that about two feet ol the street easement on 20th Ave. be in- cluded in the depth of the lots to make the lots comply with minimum standards. Subdivi- sion standards require lots to be 100 feet from front to rea: A Jefler to the commission concerning minimum side-yard requirements and fire safety Was also tabled. The letter, from the utility di- rector, emphasized the imrjor- tance of strict enforcement of the requirement that houses be at least 10 feet apart. A fire last week at 1244 5lh Ave. A S. illustrated the point. A house next lo the burning home was only four feet away and suffered "substantial dam- age." NOW AVAILABLE!
