Residents meet with auto dealer, plans made to solve problems By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter Residents adjacent to Dunlop Ford Ltd., Mayor Magrath Drive, met with the business' owner Doug Dunlop at a Municipal Planning Commission meeting Wednesday. The session was used to discuss the complaints of residents, who claim the automotive dealership has lowered values on their property. Present were Walter Stewart, who lives near the new Dunlop Ford dealership on Mayor Magrath Drive; Doug Dunlop, president of Dunlop Ford; and some other residents of the area. Mr. Stewart presented his case, referring to items regarding the dealership he felt were causing problems for the residents of the area. Mr. Dunlop informed the meeting of what actions had been taken so far to rectify the situation and invited the residents and the commission to meet with him at any time to discuss further changes. The commission, in discussing the matter after the delegations had left, decided no action on its part would be taken at this time. Alderman Steve Kotch said it would be "premature" to take action now, sug- Mill expansion okayed A new warehouse, boiler room and mill for Southern Feeds Ltd. was approved at Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commission. The development will be located at 3227 2nd Ave. N. Refused was an application from Gough's Auto Body Ltd. for an auto body shop, automotive repair centre and service station at 123 North Mayor Magrath Drive. The application was turned down on the grounds the development was Motor hotel turned down The Municipal Planning Commission Wednesday turned down an application from Star-mor Developments Ltd. of Calgary for a two-storey 46-unit motor hotel at 1025 Mayor Magrath Drive. The development has now been refused twice, both times because of density standards. When first turned down two weeks ago the floor area ratio had been 0.72; this time it was 0.61-still above the required 0.50. The developers had removed from the original plans the dining and cocktail lounge and coffee shop, but the revision was not quite enough to meet the zoninig bylaw regulations. The developers have also made application, along with the MPC, to citiy council to have the density standards revised. The bylaw amendment has been given first reading and the necessary public hearing is set for March 22. The proposed revision, if approved by council, would allow the development to go ahead. not suitable for that location, service stations were not permitted in that particular zone and that access from Mayor Magrath Drive was not permitted at that point. Also refused was a request from Eugene Welterlich Construction for permission to build a four-suite apartment at 1015 12th St. C N. A delegation of residents from the area protested that the area was zoned for single-family units and that it should remain that way as much as possible. The commission, which can approve multi-family units in single-family areas, ruled that the apartment was not considered desirable in that particular location. Tabled was an application from Louis Chow for a restaurant at 205 8th St. S. Mr. Chow is to be informed that there may be only limited ac- cess to the lot some time in the future if changes in the street systems are carried out. Also tabled was an application from Gerry Wevers for a plumbing shop at the rear of a building at 408 13th St. N. Two other firms currently occupy the front of the store. Several members of the commission felt the development was appropriate for the area and that the application should be approved. There were problems, however, with the zoning bylaw, which states that the shop must front onto the street. Mr. Wevers is to be informed of the conditions he must fulfil in order to comply with the bylaw. The commission also approved two home occupation businesses - a phone service for a landscape contractor and an office for a drywall contractor. A third - an office for a sign painter - was tabled.

WIGS By MERLE NORMAN Ready-To-Wear..........$34.95 - $59.95 gesting that Mr. Dunlop be given a reasonable length of time to display his good faith and make changes requested by area residents. A suggestion by AM. Kotch that the city might undertake to plant trees to provide more screening around the dealership met some approval, although no resolution was passed. Aid. Kotch said that since "it was the city that goofed," the city should perhaps try to provide a better barrier between the development and the residential area. The "goof" was in reference to a three-foot hedge that is designed to provide screening. Tosh Kanashiro, city development officer, pointed out that the MPC had waived a recommendation by the planners that a six-foot fence be used, at least until the hedge grew to an adequate height. He said that since the MPC had stipulated only a hedge, the city was not in a position to ask Dunlop Ford to provide any more screening. The hedge was to be at least three feet high when planted and was to grow one foot year, according to the conditions of the original approval of the project. There was varying opinion on whether it would do this, or survive at all. Mr. Stewart told the MPC the hedge has suffered damage from being run over by vehicles driving onto the lot, although parked trucks now prevent this from happening. Mr. Stewart also pointed to other businesses in the city that are better screened from adjoining residential areas Aid. C. W. Chichester said the main issue seemed to be the matter of screening and suggested this could be worked out. Chairman Joe Balla agreed that it could be resolved without too much difficulty. Another problem, overly bright lighting, apparently is in the process of being solved. Mr. Stewart said the lights on the lot were not as bright as they were, but suggested there was room for improvement. Mr. Dunlop admitted there had been a problem with the lights because of the particular wiring involved but this was being rectified and invited area residents to come out at night and help adjust them to an acceptable level. BYV has Alberta night Alberta Night was celebrated at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, Wednesday and the Travel and Convention Association of Southern Alberta is having a hand in it. In response to a request from Kenneth Young, president of the university's Canadian Club, TCASA forwarded half a dozen of the recently published posters on the theme History Lives in Southern Alberta, which depicts the Fort Whoop-Up flag and Union Jack and gives a little history of Lethbridge and Fort Macteod. Other information! was also provided. The posters and information are also to be used for International Week March 21-27 and Canada Week April 4-10, helping to advertise southern Alberta. When questioned how he waa aware of the new posters, Mr. Young replied that they had been seen in picture in The Lethbridge Herald to which the Canadian Club subscribes. Mr. Young also advised that the 554 Canadian students at BYU makes it the largest single body of Canadian students outside Canada. There are about 400 students from Alberta of which more than half are from southern Alberta. SUPERMARKET LIQUOR STORE OPENS - The city's first self-serve Alberta liquor store opened at 10:30 this morning on 8th St. S., immediately east of the former downtown liquor store which sold its last product at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. The $200,000 facility with 8,000 square feet of space is larger than the former store. The store operates like a supermarket, with the products stacked on shelves and tables and most bottles individually priced. A customer selects his liquor, beer, wine or what have you and may use a grocery cart, hand-held basket or simply carry his purchase to one of the three (later four) checkout counters for paying and wrapping. There is on-site parking for 20 vehicles. In the 1969-1970 financial year liquor and beer sales in Lethbridge totalled $5.4 million giving the province a net profit of $1.6 million. Beer sales were slightly higher than liquor sales. Gross profit to the province on liquor sales were about 50 per cent and on beer sales less than 25 percent.

Dr. Jack Paterson of Calgary told a gathering of about 350 people at a United Church fellowship dinner Tuesday night. Dr. Paterson was a guest speaker at the d i n n e r which was held to raise funds to help First United Church meet commitments on building fund debentures. People from the three United Churches paid $25 each ($30 a couple) to attend. "I intend to tell about this dinner throughout the province," said Dr. Paterson, "because it is a good illustration of the kind of co-operativeness that needs to be in evidence today." Dr. Paterson is the president of the Alberta Conference of The United Church of Canada. Also speaking at the dinner was the Rev. Dr. Nelson Mercer, a former minister of Southminster United Church in Lethbridge, now of Calgary, Dr. Mercer spoke of the importance of giving priority to human relationships'. First United Church, located at the corner of 13th Street and 5th Avenue North, built its new churchinthe early 1960s financed largely on the debenture plan. Increasingly it has become difficult for the congregation to meet its obligations to the individuals holding the notes. Proceeds from the dinner, together with regular givings, will enable the congregation to meet its commitments for the current year. Chairman of the planning committee and for the evening was Bill Kergan. Entertainment was1 provided by Wendy Grigg; Len Zoeteman; and The Carousel Two. (Janice Patterson and Linda Johnson)..

Draws remand Robert Thompson of Lethbridge appeared before Judge L. W. Hudson Wednesday in Lethbridge Magistrate's Court and pleaded guilty to five charges of false pretenses. He was remanded in custody until March 8 for sentencing. Refugees expected end of March The latest word from the. Canada Manpower Centre is that seven Tibetan refugees and their families should be arriving in the city near the end of the month. CMC officials a n n ounced Monday the refugees were being brought in to work on farms in the area as part of an agreement worked out to alleviate the situation in refugee camps in India. Lethbridge had been chosen as the one centre in the Prairies to receive refugees largely because of the availability of employment on row - crop farms and the cosmopolitan nature of the population, they said. The latter should aid greatly, they feel, in the refugees' integration into Southern Alberta society. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.
