The new hotels under construction on Bow Valley Trail are situated closer to the road than other properties along Bow Valley Trail. This is part of a future vision for the area, which includes improved roads and trails for pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers. Additionally, new recommendations have been released by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities that encourage keeping new development as far from the railway as possible.
