Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Town objects to route plan for highway Saturday, October LETHBRIDGE HERALD- 19 COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Provincial department of highways officials will come here in November to discuss the proposed route of Highway 3. A meeting with Coleman of- ficials had been scheduled earlier for this month but highways department officials delayed the meeting. They needed time to gather more information on the highway route. Coleman citizens want the highway to go through the old section of town where buildings are considered ob- solete, many businesses hav- ing been abandoned. The department of highways has proposed that the new route be north of the new business section. Town council Sept. 17 sub- mitted a brief to four cabinet ministers at Coleman. It said: "The proposed location for Highway 3 does not take into account proper land use. The Coleman General Plan for 1965 as prepared by the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission es- tablishes the area to be used for the highway as prime residential land. The proposed route would use choice land which is now at a premium and very valuable for future residential expansion.'1 This land is known as the Pineview subdivision. At a recent council meeting, the saie of 15 lots in the new subdivision was approved. Engineered Homes will begin construction of homes on some of the lots immediately. In other business' The annual inspection of the town-owned gas company lines was conducted this fall by Heath Survey Consultants and cost of the safety survey was borne entirely by the town The report on the survey, submitted by consultant Peter Eichenberger, indicated the system is in good condition Only eight minor leaks were found, four of which have already been repaired. The other four are to be attended to immediately. The inspection also disclos- ed gas to be present in a home occupied by a local resident in an area located near an aban- doned mine working that had been sealed off some years ago The gas was analyzed and it was found to be escaping from an underground source and not from the town's system. Mines Inspector A. E. Potter of the mines inspection branch, representatives of Coleman Collieries and the town worked together to cor- rect the problem. It vfes decided to drill holes in the ground to allow the gas to dis- sipate slowly into the air in an attempt to resolve the problem. It was felt that the gas was only a small pocket that had gathered when the mine was sealed off. Several businessmen were at the meeting to express their views regarding the proposed shopping centre. It had been understood that the town is asking outside business to take space hi the complex. The town advised that the developer would give local business first chance to go into the complex1. The town offices and library will locate in the complex when com- pleted. Members of the volunteer fire brigade are to consider, and report back on council's proposal that fire telephones be installed in each brigade member's home so that an effective system be instituted. Fire calls are ndw taken dur- ing the day by the local town office and on off hours by local residents Clarence Clarke and Mrs. H. Oliva. In an attempt to provide parking space for customers near the Credit Union com- plex, the town has set up tem- porary barriers to prevent large trucks taking up all of the parking space. If the method is successful perma- nent barriers will be installed. Mayor John Holyk and coun- cillor Graham Atkinson, who attended the public utilities meeting at Calgary, reported that the only brief discussed at the meeting was one that Calgary Power had presented. Another hearing on Phase 2 will be held Dec. 17 when it is expected that a local brief will be presented. Highway route unsettled Coleman citizens want a proposed new route for Highway 3 to go through the south part of town where businesses have been abandoned. The highways department has proposed the new route go through a planned residential area.
