Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Octaber It, THE LITHBRIDQI HERALD The Herald- District Land planning was forum topic HIGH RIVER (Special) Opinions about country residential development, recreation on agricultural land and the proposed new planning act were expressed at a recent Alberta Land Use Forum meeting here. Thirty residents of High River, Okotoks, Longview, Turner Valley, Cayley and Nanton districts formed two committees to draft briefs for a meeting scheduled to be held at p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, in the Highwood Memorial Centre here. Jock Noble of Okotoks will head a group to study the effect of small holdings on land use A group headed by Mr. and Mrs Percy Gardiner of the Nanton district will look into recreation on agricultural land. Mrs J A. Hughes of Longview will collect any suggestions citizens may have to help those working on briefs. Any citizens are welcome to help out with these bnefs or to submit briefs of their own. All briefs will be read by toe Land Use Forum which reports to four cabinet ministers The forum will be recommending land use regulations and legislation toward the end of 1975. Public meetings for the forum are being conducted throughout the province. Citizens here voiced concern about the proufera- MAGRATH NEW ELM SPRING HUTTERITES MOVE TO THEIR NEW COLONY Brethren to first colony bought since freeze GRASSY llAKE (Staff) Fifty six people moved from a farm south of Magrath to their new holdings here this week Members of the New Elm Huttente Colony, formed in 1918 as a direct offshoot of the New Elm colony of Parkston, S to the new Ponderosa colony south of here Fifty four people stayed home with the "mother" colony. Hutterites came from Big Bend at Woolford, Birch Creek at Valier, Mont., Crystal Springs at Magrath, Acadia at Acadia Valleji, Roseglen at Hilda and Haven at Fox Valley, Sask colonies to help with the moving. There were also reunions with family members from Monarch, Cayley, Hanna, Parkland and Drumheller. Almost everything moved in the trucks was of a practical nature, such as household fur- niture Huttentes have few personal belongings. It was much the same as any moving day for any average Canadian although television sets, radios, record players and musical instruments were conspicuous by their absence Fifty four stayed at New Elm and 56 came to the Ponderosa colony. How did they decide.who would move? Families chose one 'of two ministers at New Elm. The ministers drew lots as to which group would move to the new colony. Said one woman "Sometimes moving is a problem. If somebody wants to be with their parents or something, you just switch around. Then you draw the lot.' We like to go in a nice way We don't want to hurt anyone." Were there any tears? "They all want to go because everything is new here but no, I didn't see any tears." It was an 85 mile move, by tion of country residents in the Foothills Municipal District, bringing shortages of law en- forcement officers, reports of "starving" horses on overgrazed acreages, and loss of .prime agricultural land to food production. Another concern is the conflict between recreationists and Ian-" downers The meeting called for tougher trespass laws and education of urban citizens in the rights of rural property owners. Some felt snowmobiles, motorcycles and all terrain vehicles pose an acute problem, as many landowners suffer damage to grass, ero- sion due to packing of snow into ice and cut fences. One rancher, who keeps a private recreational area open, reported much littering and damage: to trees. He suggested people who come to the country are killing the very environment which attracts them. Another landowner urged those attending the meeting to help the government help lan- downers to live with the recreationists, because "you can't stop more than people from coming out into the country in their spare time." Full utilization of public reserve lands dedicated due to rural subdivision was also urged. Some residents felt these lands couldybe better used for recreation.

Sam Entz. It has taken them about 18 months to build the barns, homes, shop and other facilities that turns a one family, acre farm into a 56 member community with all things in common. The Forty Mile County school committee has ordered one change Church and school Fire hall needed, mayor contends CRANBROOK (Special) Mayor Ty Colgur urged Cranbrook residents to vote for a satellite fire hall in the Nov 16 referendum, saying, "People don't look on it as an essential service until they need it" Aid. Steph Atchison says the present fire hall cannot ade- quately serve the community now. He says the situation will get worse as the city expands. Speaking on council's phone in television forum, Aid. Atchison said: "The first five .minutes are the most impor- tant. In two cases I can think of off hand, it takes more than 10 minutes (to get to the scene of a Aid. Atchison says that if firefighters cannot get to the scene of a blaze within 10 minutes, "they might as well stay home." Most of the questions residents phoned in concerned the fire hall rather than the two other proposed services covered by the referendum, storm sewers and roads. The fire hall project will cost taxpayers about over 20 years. This includes a mandatory 15 per cent con- tingency fee and interest The cost of the specialized building and training facility is about per square foot The new hall will provide a tower that can be used for ladder practices and in which fires can be set and ex- tinguished Aid Atchison did not promise the new fire hall would affect homeowners' fire insurance rates City council agreed the storm sewer system badly needs upgrading and expan- sion. "Whether people are willing to have their basements flood- ed and save money" or whether they want to solve these problems and accept an increase in taxes is the issue, says Aid Ron Powell.
