JJO-acre plots opposed PINCHER CREEK (Staff) The Old man River Regional Planning Com- mission's recommendation that agricultlral subdivisions be not less than 80 acres ran into some opposition from the Pincher Creek MD council Tuesday Bill Crook, council's representative on the planning board, said some units of 90 acres could be economic agriculturally but that as a general rule these sub- divisions would have to be much larger. The MD council didn't think the 80-acres figure is a realistic basis for determining what would constitute an agricultural subdivision. The council recommended the size of the subdivision be related to land value or the productivity of the land. Council thinks it has the mechanics to implement this with assessments used for tax purposes accurately reflecting the productivity of the land.
