Ph. 321-7751 Hearing On 4th Ave. Closing Million Hotel Complex Gets Rezoning Approval By HERB JOHNSON Herald City Hall Reporter Approval for the necessary rezoning for a million hotel complex in Shoppers' World was given by city council Mon- day. Second and third readings to the. bylaw amendment passed unanimously and without com- ment by council members. There was considerable dis- cussion, however, during a one hour and 20 minute public hear- ing proceeding the decision. Opposition to the proposed development centred around possible traffic problems in' the area, particularly with regard to a beer parlor planned as part of the complex. R. J. Kwasnie said, as a resi- dent of the area, he was op- posed to a tavern in the devel- HoslePs Fate Undecided The fate of Odyssey' House the city's youth hostel and no a student co-op, remains unde tided following Monday's mee ing of city council. A recommendation from Wi liam Kergan, director of th city's preventive social ser vices that the hostel be given grant to cany it over the next three months was referrec to the finance committee. A decision is expected before Oct. 15, the date on which the hostel's current financing ar rangements run out. Mr. Kergan's recommenda tion was that the hostel b maintained on a yearly basis serving as a transient youtt hostel in the spring and sum mer and a student co-op in the winter. Action On Fireworks Held Over Ctiy council will take no im mediate action on the banninj of fireworks in Lethbridge. Council Monday accepted recommendation from John Hammond, city solicitor, that the matter be held over until the new fire bylaw is consid ered. It contains provisions tha would ban the safe and setting off of fireworks in the city without a permit. Council Briefs During Monday's session city council: approved a grant to Hie Green Acres Foundation in Keu of taxes for the Green Acres and Golden Acres lodges, but disallowed a request for dropping in maintenance charges, appoved a recommenda- tion from the parks and rec- reation commission that a life- guard be on duty at all times during school instruction swim decided against installing a sound system in the council chambers on a trial basis, gave first reading to a new bylaw setting out the The grant would allow the operation to continue until Jan. 15, giving the Youth Ser- vices Council, which is respon- sible for Odyssey House, time to prepare a submission on a drug information and crisis centre that would become part of the operation at the hostel. The house, at 1001 2nd Ave. S., is now embarking on a stu- dent co-op operation. Council was told by Al Brew- er, chairman of the Youth Ser- vices Council, there are cur- rently seven students in resi. dence, with three more expect- ed. Revenue would amount to in the next three months, but the additional would be required to keep the operation afloat. In reply to Alderman Vaughan Hembroff, Mr. Brew- er told council he felt the ser- vices offered during the sum- mer had been successful lodging facilities had been used to capacity, there had been no complaints from the police, about 400 persons with various problems had been referred to agencies for help and (here had been a good deal of involve- meht by several sectors of the community. He also said the plannec drug information and crisi centre was one of the origina concepts involved in plannin for the hostel earlier thds year At that time, he said, those in volved wanted to co-ordinat drug information services an this was still a concern of th youth services council. Replying to a question froi Aid. Jim Anderson as to wh the plans for the drug centre were not prepared, if this hat been in the planning stage fo a long time, Mr. Brewer saic operation of the hostel, com bined rath people being out o town during the summer, hac prevented the committee from ironing out details until recent Aid. Rex Little said he was "extremely disappointed" tha other sectors of the commun ity, such as service clubs, they had been involved in the hostel, had not offered financia support at this tune. He also questioned council's being informed at this late date of the suggested new direction in the scope of activities for Odyssey House. Acres Okayed As Distillery Site Lethbridge city council Mon- day agreed to offer Interha- ional Distillers and Vintners of London an option on 47 icres in the industrial park as he site for a distillery and ma- uring warehouse. Ultimate purchase price of he land would amount to about The industrial area is in northeast Lethbridge. The option must be picked up by Feb. 15, 1971 and the plant must be built within two years of that date. Construction of the distillery, which is expeced to cost sev- eral million dollars, is conting- ent upon the firms receiving a federal grant under the area in- centives program. Council also approved two other recommendations from the land sales offering two acres in the indus- trial park to North Lethbridge Mo-Tires Ltd. for a retreading plant and another offer of two acres to the provincial govern- ment for a juvenile receiving home in North Lethbridge near Sifton House. Membership Drive Starts r Overture Concert Run A one-Week campaign fori The series, entering its 14th opment, even if it were a small operation within the hotel itself, rather than a large beer par- lor in the south end of the as originally an- nounced by the developer, Art Batty, president of Shoppers' World Ltd. Speaking for Mr. Batty, W. P. Davidson said the latest plan was for a beverage room with a seating capacity of about 125, plus a lounge. Another major concern of several individuals who spoke against the development was ths deterioration of property values because of the proxim- ity of the hotel. They rejected a suggestion by Mr. Davidson that the de- velopment would have a posi- tive, rather than adverse, ef- fect on property values. Several noted they were not against this type of develop- ment, but felt it should not be next to a residential area. Despite the best efforts of Deputy Mayor Rex Little, the question of closing 4th Ave. S. kept cropping up during the discussion. Closure of the avenue has been requested by the devel- oper and there has been con- cern expressed on this matter by area residents. A public hearing on the pos- i sible closure will be held, al though no date has yet been set for it. The hearing had been delay- ed until reports on the possible effect of the closure could be prepared by various city de- partments. These are now ready and are available to the public at city hall. The date of the hearing will be advertised. There is also a possibility 4th Ave. may be closed on Wai basis prior to the public hearing to give the city chance to evaluate the prob- lems that would be encounter- ed.

(Chick) Clu'chester was named president of the Travel and Convention of Southern Alberta at its annaul meeting Monday. He succeeds E. Peter Hale. Other officers named to the executive were: John Davis, first vice-president; John Neal, second vice-president; Art Smetaniuk, treasurer. This was the advice Lt.-Gov. Grant MacEwan gave to mem- bers and guests at the annual meeting of the Travel and Con- vention Association of Southern Alberta held in Lethbridge Monday night. "No community 'wants to be Mr. MacEwan said, "and its citizens are constantly wondering what more they can do to attract the tourist dollars. 'Some communities have no natural drawing cards such as Niagara Falls, so consequently they have to develop them. One city I know developed a Husky tower, another has bm'lt a mountain just so that it might qualify for the Olympic Winter Games." The travelling public is at- tracted by local legends and raditions, Mr. MacEwan said, and suggested the Ogopogo monster as an example. In eastern Canada, Prince Ed- ward Island has learned to capitalize on the legend of Anne of Green Gables who seems to be real to so many visitors. Americans, Mr. MacEwan said, have long since found the value historically as well as commercially in building up and developing their heroes 'Paul Bunyan and his Blue Ox Babe, Davy Crockett, Buffali j Bill and other frontier charac i ters are far more famous to us I than some of our own worthy personalities." But Canadian personalities particularly those of the olc west, are equally interesting and exciting, he said. He men- tioned Jerry Potts, Kootenai Brown, Old Kanoose, and men of the North West Mounted Po- lice who lived dangerous, ex- citing and invaluable lives not only in creating southern Al- berta, but in an historic and literary sense as well. "These early people were ad- venturers of the most interest- ing nature or they wouldn't have come to this country. at Mr: MacEwan said. "I would urge historians, writers and yes, tourist associations also, to try to develop these characters in a factual way that would attract the attention of visitors. These stories should be told before they are forgotten, not only for the value they might have in attracting dollars for the community, but for the moral reason that these should not be discounted or lost." COLD JULY The Czechoslovak region of experienced northern Moravia its coldest July in 25 years. m '11 Winter Oiiil Won't Stay: Weatherman Despite the snow and chilly temperatures, old man winter has just made a brief appear- ance and is not here to stay.
