Residents meet with auto dealer, plans made to solve problems By HERB JOHNSON Hera'ld City Hall Reporter Residents adjacent to Dunlop Ford Ltd, Mayor Magrath Drive, met with the business' owner Doug Dunlop at a Mu- nicipal Planning Commission meeting Wednesday. The session was used to dis- cuss the complaints of resi- dents, who claim the automo- tive dealership has lowered values on their property. Present were Walter Stew- art, who lives near the new Dunlop Ford dealership on Mayor Magrath Drive; Doug Dunlop, president of Dunlop Ford; and some other resi- dents of the area. Mr. Stewart presented his case, referring to items regard- ing the dealership he felt were causing problems for the resi- dents of the area. Mr. Dunlop informed the meeting of what actions had been taken so far to rectify the situation and in- vited the residents and the commission to meet with him at any time to discuss further changes. The commission, in discuss- ing the matter after the dele- gations had left, decided no ac- tion on its part would be taken at this time. Alderman Steve Kotch said it would be "prema- ture" to take action now, sug- expansion okayed A new warehouse, boiler room and mill for Southern Feeds Ltd. was approved at Wednesday's meeting of the Municipal Planning Commis- sion.

Also refused was a request from Eugene Welterlich Con- struction 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 consid- ered desirable in that particu- lar location. cess to the lot some time in the future if changes in the street systems are carried out. Also tabled was an applica- tion from Gerry Wevers for a plumbing shop at the rear of a building at 403 13th St. N. Two other firms currently occupy the front of the store. Several members of the com- mission felt the development was appropriate for the area and that the application should be approved. There were prob- lems, however, with the zoning bylaw, which states that the shop must front onto the street. Mr. Wevers is to be in- formed of the conditions he must fulfil in order to comply with the bylaw.

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 Leth- bridge and Fort Maeleod. Oth- er informatioin was also pro- vided. The posters and information are also to be used for Interna- tional Week March 21-27 and Canada Week April 4-10, help- ing to advertise southern Al- berta. When questioned how he was 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 sin- gle body of Canadian students outside Canada. There are about 400 students from Alber- ta of which more than half are from southern Alberta. that Mr. Dunlop be given a reasonable length of time to display his good faith and make changes requestec by area residents.

SUPERMARKET LIQUOR STORE OPENS The cily's first self-serve Alberta liquor store opened at this morning on 8th St. S., immediately east of the former down- town liquor store which sold its last product at p.m. Wednesday. The facility with square feet of space is larger than the former store. The store oper- ates like a supermarket, with the products stacked on shelves and tables and most bot- tles 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 park- ing for 20 vehicles. In the 1969-1970 financial year liquor and beer sales in Lethbridge totalled million giving the province a net profit of million. Beer sales were slight- ly 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. _________ attend church dinner in funds-fellowship night Supervisor Calgary AID coming here George Stalinski, supervisor of Calgary's Advice, Informa- tion and Direction Centre, will be key speaker at the next meetirig of the Lethbridge AID year, according to the condi- The dinner meeting has been AID Almost Canadian Red Cross Youth members and their teacher-sponsors have contributed more than to assist young people in Canada and overseas. tions of the original approval set for The Town Chef at 7 p m. of the project.
