"Advance tickets are availab from Leister's Musicland ai Marcel's Smoke Shop. College site Gym, pool possible By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff Writer A recommendation that a multi-pur- pose arena be constructed on Scenic Drive, north of he Lclhbridge Community College, by December, 1973 went before city council Monday. The matter was to be given detailed consideration afternoon. The arena consultants presented the results of a study which show "an overwhelming support for the concept of not just an arena, but a multi-purpose fa- cility." Such a facility would cost million if built on the L.CC site, Lou Ospiov of Phil- ips, Barratt, Hillier, Jones and Partners told council. For that amount of money, the arena would be large enough to expand to ieats. The initial plan calls for two levels, with seats in the lower area and an equal amount in a bal- cony above a central con- course. The facilities would include a square-foot basement at rink level, square feet for dressing rooms and storage, square feet for 'future lounge and club and square feet for open exhibition space. The open exhibition space could be used as four full basketball courts, 20 badmin- ton courts, a 200-metre indoor track or a regular hockey rink (in addition to the main ice There is also provision for a 25-metre enclosed swim- ming pool, for which the con- sultants found a need in the city. If that project is ac- cepted, it would be "concur- rent" with the arena, but not lion. Estimated operating costs would be a year. Estimated revenues would be The recommended site was chosen over eight others in the city, Mr. Osipov said, but only two others were serious- ly "considered: the downtown area and Exhibition Grounds. The downtown area was discounted, primarily be- cause it would cost an addi- tional million to build the same facility in that location. That figure was derived on the basis of a potential 000 provincial grant for an arena built at the LCC site (which could not be expected if the arena were to be built downtown) plus to acquire land downtown for parking near the proposed arena site there. The minimum parcel of land the arena could be built on in the downtown area would be eight acres, allow- ing for parking for 508 cars, a ratio of one car to 10 seats. At the LCC site, it is pro- posed 16 acres be developed with parking for cars, a one-to-four ratio.

From this standpoint, how- Airport also studied A representative of LaBorde, Simat Ltd. of Calgary outlined an approach for a study of the city's airport and air ser- vice facilities Monday, but the city council meeting was ad- journed before any action was taken. The subject will be brought up again this afternoon when lg council reconvenes to complete the agenda. Bob Brownie told council the federal government and the airlines will more readily con- sider upgrading air services in a city which has had a study conducted showing the needs for such improvement. A study would show where j the deficiencies are and deter- mine where the improvements should be, Mr. Brownie said. He observed, for example, that Vancouver and Toronto are two of the major domestic markets for service from Leth- bridge. There is, of course, no direct air serviec to either centre from here. Air travellers to and from Lethbridge must make time- consuming connections with major carriers in Calgary, he said. Improved air service here is Important for at least two oth- er reasons, he said: the level of air service in a community an important factor in dei termining whether or not a firm will locate in that commu- nity; there would be an oppor- tunity for trade through Leth- bridge with Washington, Mon- i tana and North Dakota with appropriate air service. The study would take from three lo four months and cost about plus expenses, he said. ever, the "city leadership must be strong enough so the college does not take it (the arena) over." Bob Bartlett. city commu- nity services director, has recommended the his depart- ment manage the arena. There will he further in- put, particularly from the aldermen, when the recom- mendations are discussed by council today at The arena would be located on an L-shaped parcel of land surrounding the LDS Stake Centre. There would be two access points off Scenic Drive and one off 28th St. S. The facility would sit in a north-south direction, west of the Stake Centre property, with the front of the build- ing facing north. Parking would be provided on the east and west sides of the facility. The foot of the L-shaped lot would be for parking. The to- tal lot would provide parking for vehicles. Stewart pleased Dr. C. D. Stewart, president of the Lethbridge Community College, said this morning that he is "looking forward to the city firming up plans for the arena development in this area." The arena consultants' re- port is "along the lines we thought would be best. We ac- cept the principle o[ sharing. "We've checked this out with the colleges commission and the government and they also approve sharing as a saving of taxpayers' money. "We like the location and the design which would comple- ment the LDS Stake Centre and the college. Parking for the arena will also help the college. "The proposed size of the facility will serve us for quite a while to come. The facility will he ideal for the college's basketball program.
