Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Motel Complex At Pincher Creek Development Planned PINCHER CREEK (Special) At tho Town Council meet- ing, a spokesman for Parker Holdings, Lcthbridge, presented a plan for the development of the Goff Cabins, recently pur- chased by the company. Stage one would see work starting immediately to build and remodel the present cabins and have a motel complex of 15 units. Stage two, at a later date, would see a' two-storey building containing a licensed lounge and further units. The alley dividing the cabins will be closed. Underwood, McLellan and Associate.-! Ltd. carried out a preliminary survey of the hard surfacing already done. Everall Construction assured council repairs of the most serious type would be redone immediately. The remainder of the paving will be started at once. Approval was granted for the appointment of Mrs. Joan Tur- cotte to the Library board. Approval was also given to ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 Walter Burgess to sell Watkins products.

He stated it is pushed to ca- pacity and cannot keep up with the demand. The water and sewer depart- ment suggested the town al- leviate this situation by pur- chasing a new type of filter for the filter shells. The estimated cost for the conversion would be compared to for a strainer. This filter would make it possible to speed up the capacity of the plant from 160 gallons per minute to 580 galldis. This would be. suf- ficient for the town for the next four to five years. Further study on .this conver- sion proposal is to be made be- fore council decides. nook Health unit has risen. There was no increase in the government grant. Council felt the Health Unit was doing a first class job. The new sub-division on the West side of'the golf course is to be serviced soon and will make several choice lots avail- able.

RENEW LEASE COALDALE (HNS) The sand and gravel lease between the town and Marathon Realty Company Limited was recently renewed on a three-year basis. Recreation Group Lays Ground Rules NATAL (HNS) District of Sparwood's new joint Planning and Recreation Commission recently met to lay ground rules for joint and separate meeting requirements. Joint meetings mil be held when- ever there are matters related to planning of recreation ar- rangements, otherwise plan- ning or recreation meetings will be held. The Commission looked into the possibility of opening addi- tional lots in the township of Sparwood in stage 3 of the development plan for possible use by a housing development company that may decide to build a large number of new housing units in the near future. Members of the commission were also concerned about large developments of housing with all houses in the develop- ment having the same basic appearance. Central Mortgage and Housing has been asking to co-operate to ensure that would-be builders of such de- velopments be encouraged to provide greater variety in de- sign and arrangement of hous- ing units. Budgets for Planning and Recreation Committees were proposed at and respectively. These are oper- ating budgets for the commit- tees and are subject to council approval. Monies for recrea- tion purposes will have to be otherwise provided. The joint commission made three recommendations for council to study: That Under- wood and McLellan be ap- proached for agreement that the development plan include a buffer strip of trees between the recreation area and the tracks. This is to cut down on the anticipated noise from unit trains when the large coal bearing trains begin to run. That Council look into the acquisition of land across the highway from stage 3 of the development plan and, finally that council have develdpers replace any trees which they have removed from any of the buffer strips in the township.
