E. Kootenay board raps land freeze Thursday, October II, LtTHBfHDOE HIP.ALO-19 CRANBROOK, B.C. The Regional District of East Kootenay directors have come out in opposition to the 1973 Land Commission Act which temporarily froze agricultural land holdings. The board is now seeking authority from the province to determine use of all land un- der RDEK jurisdiction. RDEK officials say land-use rules, mapped by the B.C. Land Commission following public hearings earlier this year, conflict with regional land-use plans and zoning bylaws and should not have priority. Administrator Frank Ber- toia appealed for additional time and approximately 000 for the cost of a professional land use survey by Acres Consulting Services Limited. RDEK planner Eugene Lee said he believed the Land Commission had not grasped the commercial and industrial diversity of the Rocky Moun- tain Trench area, in which currently assessed agricultural land through the freeze cannot be used for other purposes until the Land Commission standardizes plans for all regional districts. Some are small idle parcels, both municipal and rural, and in fast developing East Kootenay are effectively blocking development.
