Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETH3RIDGE HEKAtD Monday, November 16, 1970-------------------------------------------------- sintly Recreation development. (First of Three Parts) By 1IEHB JOHNSON Herald Staff Writer A regional government for the Crowsnest Pass and devel- opment of the area as part of a north south oriented recrea- tion area extending from Jas- per to Yellowstone parks, are two proposals contained in the recently released summary of a study of the region by the Old- man Hiver Regional Planning Commission. Whether the study wili suffer the fate that has befallen simi- lar efforts and wind up on the shell, or become the basis of new efforts at economic reju- venation, remains to be seen. To date four meetings of a local government study group have been held.

A. (Bud) Olson indicated Saturday tho federal govern- ment is examining transporta- tion lines in the west to "iden- tify areas of discrimination."

The study itself, financed largely by Central Mortg age and Housing Corporation and the Alberta Housing Corpora-' (ion, not only suggests these two solutions to the economic ills that have plagued the 'Pass, but also delves into the rea- sons behind the depressed econ- omy and docum e n t s its find- ings. The findings of the study, pre- sented in detail and backed by reams of statistics, provide fac- tual evidence for some kind of action to broaden the economic base of the area and make it a I more attractive place to two of the stated goats of the study. Part one ol the study, for example, is concerned with pop- ulation. It notes the present characteristics reliable f follow-up service. See your Sno-Prince dealer to-day.
