Town of Canmore

Activating Main Street & Town Centre

One of the key goals of the 2018 ITP Update is to maximize the number of people that can access the Town Centre and create a vibrant, active, social place where businesses thrive and people want to spend time. To accomplish this, the primary flow of traffic will be shifted around the Town Centre with improvements to those roads. Cars and parking will still be permitted on Main Street and within the Town Centre, but by gradually transitioning some of the space that is currently used for through traffic and car storage into spaces for people, its primary function will be a vibrant, public space where people can shop, eat, congregate and connect.
