Valley zoning chief topic NATAL (HNS) - Proposals of the Elk Valley Land, Protective Association for zoning of the Upper Elk Valley will be discussed at a meeting to be arranged this' month between the Association and members of the Regional District of East Kootenay. The RDEK will be represented by directors Lloyd Phillips and Lloyd Sharpe and Regional Planner Alfred Miller. Chairman Stan Wilson will also attend if possible. The proposals to be discussed were outlined in a letter to the RDEK board from Horst Hees, secretary. They are: Any person involved in the purchase of land prior to the first public hearing on the zoning of the Upper Elk Valley will be permitted to complete this transaction- regardless of any subsequent zoning or time required to complete the purchase; to include in any proposed zoning bylaw a hardship clause to be suitable to the persons to be affected by the proposed zoning; any landowner should be allowed to sell his children any amount of land in any location he wishes; there shall be no restrictions to any type of business in the Upper Elk Valley provided this is accept- able to the majority of the residents of the area proposed to be zoned. This area is to include all lands from the Wilson Creek to the Elk Lakes; to abolish five and 80 acre zoning; some for one acre lots and-or cluster and-or block developments off the existing highway-according to law. Finalization of exact boundaries from Cranbrook after its latest extension and the need to zone the area surrounding the City has triggered another plea by Regional Planner Alfred MiUer for the board of the RDEK to make up its mind what it is going to do about zoning. In his report to the board, Mr. Miller again told the board that he cannot reasonably go ahead with zoning for any of the areas within the Regional District of East Kootenay until the board reaches a decision on the Upper Elk Valley. Zoning in that area has been in dispute since last June when a zoning bylaw was presented to a public hearing. The board, who had agreed to zone for lots of a five-acre minimum in rural residential, area and lots of an 80-acre minimum in non-urban areas, asked for approval of the Minister of Municipal Affairs despite protests of residents of the Elk Valley, feeling that the residents had offered no reasonable alternative. The Minister, Hon. Dan Campbell, approved a zoning bylaw for the Wasa Improvement District, based on five and 80-acre lot minimums, but told the RDEK to get "substai> tial support" from residents of the Elk Valley before he would approve the bylaw. Despite genuine concern on the part of some directors for the fate of the Elk Valley and a feeling that zoning there is urgently needed, even if it is changed later, the board has been persuaded, by loud opposition of the Elk Valley Land Protective Association, to arrange more meetings. The Association has now come up with concrete proposals, but no action on the zoning can be taken till after the next board meeting, March 27, at the earliest. Industrial co-ordinator not needed says mayor TABER (HNS) - Mayor Arthur Avery told council recently the town could get along without an industrial co-ordinator and town superintendent particularly since finances are of prime concern. The positions are vacant with the resignation of Bent Madsen. Mayor Avery said there are no major projects upcoming this summer. The question will be discussed March 22. Council debated the possibility of the town tendering for phase 3 of the sewage treatment plant. The conclusion was that staff has not sufficient experience to prepare such a tender. The work involves laying 5,000 feet of concrete pipe from the river syphon to the lagoons, and the laying of 18-inch and 12-inch pipe for the irrigation system. To organize ball groups COALDALE (HNS)-A meeting to organize a softball program this spring for the grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 children will be held at 8 p.m. Monday, March 22, in the Coaldale Community Hall, sponsored by the Lethbridge County Southern Regional Recreation Board.

The meeting Is for all persons in the south county area interested in baseball or soft-ball, coaches, assistants, officials, also interested parents, adults and persons willing to serve as drivers to transport the player. The main purpose of the meeting is to form one or more ball groups to plan and become involved in the operation of the softball-baseball programs for this spring and summer.
