Bylaw 2022-27 - Land Use Bylaw Amendment – Staircase Lands
The bylaw received first reading on Nov. 29, 2022. This bylaw redesignates the Staircase Lands to Future Development. This is to comply with the Alberta Court of Kings Bench order for the Town of Canmore to commence proceedings to either acquire the upper triangle of the Staircase Lands Council or redesignate it. The Staircase Lands are a smaller parcel of land privately owned by Three Sisters Mountain Village Properties Ltd. (TSMVPL), located along Three Sisters Drive, between Peaks Drive and the access road to Quarry Lake. The order applies to the upper portion closest to the Quarry Lake access road currently zoned Natural Park District. TSMVPL has declined the Town of Canmore’s offer to purchase the upper triangle of the Staircase Lands for the purpose of implementing the above court decision.
