He said the association is and to the concept of Pauline Janisko's mobile home park. It is to be sited in the north hill area of town. Her land is on the west edge of in line with the last street. It is zoned transitional with a use. Mr. Turcotte says that the zoning bylaw should be interpreted so that a development such as this be advertised so ratepayers can voice an opinion. He said the mobile home court would depreciate property values in the cause traffic congestion and overload services. He asked council if a development permit had been issued but received no answer.

Senior gov't decisions prompt end to project CRANBROOK The Natal Sparwood urban renewal which saw the coal dust blackened town of Natal erased and a lusty town of Sparwood is now finished as far as the Regional District of East Kootenay is concerned The RDEK administered the project over a seven-year period. It has now withdrawn. Dutch Creek's hoodoos don't interest commission CRANBROOK The Dutch Creek hoodoos 50 miles north of Kimberley apparently don't interest the B.C. Land Commission. Hans owner of Dutch Creek had received Regional District of East Kootenay support earlier on his offer to sell the property to the commission. He wanted a decision by mid-May but the commission hasn't answered his offer. The board of directors of the RDEK has now learned that part of the hoodoos are up for grabs by investment capital. The RDEK earlier recommended purchase of the hoodoos by the parks branch. Mr. Roeck told the RDEK several months ago he had an offer from Walter Becker of Carmel by the but would rather sell the hoodoos to the B.C. government for a park. The following ad appeared in the Vancouver Sun's classified section under Business THE DUTCH Fairmont Hot Springs. Resort development requires Canadian participation to comply with laws. Excellent this is a ground floor opportunity. Write to Walter Carmel by the Sea. RDEK administrator Frank Bertoia told the board Mr. Roeck had told him a week previously that he was prepared to offer the hoodoos as a gift to the province. It has advised the District of the B.C. department of housing and the Centrl Mortgage and Housing Corporation that it has opted out. The decision to withdraw was unanimously supported by RDEK directors. tht job is still not finished. But RDEK directors recently received a letter about the curling rink at Natal. It was to have been razed. But it is against RDEK being used. unilateral decisions by senior prompted the RDEK to opt out. The most recent action was a notice fey the provincial government about one month ago to stop all activity so it could have appraisals of property redone. Updating of appraisals had been done by the urban renewal administration just prior to the order. The curling arena has been a continuous thorn in the side of the project administration. When urban renewal first it was planned to move the rink to Sparwood. But a recreation association thought it could build a new arena. The association arranged to use the old one until the new one was ready. A new rink has not yet been built. The 'Sparwood Curling Club is still asking for despite earlier deadlines being stretched or ignored. Raymond parents invited to Learning Centre meeting Town wants to avoid coal dust BLAIRMORE Mayor Ernie Fantin has suggested to Consolidated Coal Company of Canada superintendent Ron Ziegler that the firm consider trucking coal out of Blairmore for loading at another point. It has also been suggested the company use a spur line at the western end of town rather than one in the centre of town. Mayor Fantin says the town wants to avoid coal dust. town council is being extremely cautious about Consolidated Coal's request that a spur line across Highway 3 west of the Alberta Government Telephones ottice oe opened for use. x It was used formerly by West Canadian Collieries to move its coal to the main CP Rail line which runs parallel to Highway 3 and the main street here. Mayor said that if the company is planning a permanent industry council could a more realistic at giving its permission to open the old crossing. But if plans call for a short-term experimental coal council should not favor the request. The firm has been asked to submit detailed plans to town council. Council learned the company is considering a plan to move about tons of coal per month. This would be for a six-month period. The coal would be moved from its Grassy Mountain strip about 10 miles north of to an eastern market.
