Craubrook General Plan Released CRANBROOK (Special) Long term Cranbrook expan- sion plan over the next 17 years has been prepared by Regional District of East Koctcnay plan- ner Alfred Miller. The 1970 extension north, east and west has brought city area up to acres with assess- ment of for hospital and .school tax purposes, but not including tax exempt hospi- tal, schools and other govern- ment 'properties. Population based on Uie 19G6 census within former limits and an actual count in extension area is Mr. Miller's proposed first stage would extend limits to in- clude three heavily populated suburbs, Slatervtile Tvilh about 500, Pinecrest with about 300, and Little Van Home and Walts- ville area of about 300. This stage would add 610 acres, only partially inhabited at present. Existing limits now include only the 40 acre lumber com- pany yard soon to be vacated and former hospital adjoining Slater vi le, McKenzie Drive fronting Pinecrest, and South 4th St. -westward to 1st Ave. In Little Van Home. Second stage would be 530 al- most uninhabited acres north of the Industrial Park which ends now short of the sewage lagoons and the third stage 650 acres of uninhabited foothills slope east of city limits and Pinecrest.

The purpose of the display and program was to increase community interest in these clubs. The Turin Family Night was formed in September, 1968. It developed because the peo- ple of the community felt clubs were needed for all age groups. Members of the department of youth attended the first meet- ing. They advised that a steer- ing committee be formed. The steering committee was used as the sounding board in determin- ing the recreational needs of the community. The family night grew out of further meetings. Its function was to use the school as a com- munity centre, to use a certain night each week for club meet- ings, to encourage family par- ticipation, to develop a recrea- tion program and to pay jani- torial fees. Three main clubs were formed..These were Turin Fish and Game Association, handi- craft club riding club. Un- der Uie handicraft club are found the Brownies, baton, Twiggies, and crafts such as sewing, resin, and liquid em- broidery. The Brownies are sponsored by handicraft. The school gymnasium is used for sports such as badminton, basketball, and volleyball. The riding club sponsors the 4-H beef and 4-H light horse j clubs. The fish and game associa-j Bon's present project is the de-1 velopment of a trout dam. The i riding club has gymkhanas at the Goldridge Ranch. The handicraft club has been active in each cf its areas. Most cf the clubs have ad- journed and will resume meet- ings in the fall.
