Town of Canmore

Council Clips – June 12, 2018

Community Event Policy Update

The Community Event Policy is intended to give staff a framework for making fair decisions about approving and charging fees for community events and associated road closures. This was Council’s chance to ask questions and give input on the policy before it comes back to them for approval on July 3.

Transportation and Parking

There are increased travel and parking demands on Canmore’s roads and neighourhoods. Today, Council got an advance look at two major plans intended to address these demands – the Integrated Transportation Plan and the Integrated Parking Management Plan. The plans outline current and future parking and congestion issues and recommend strategies to manage challenges. If you are interested in the future of traffic and parking in Canmore, check out the reports on the webpages https://canmore.ca/projects/parking-study and https://canmore.ca/projects/transportation-planning  The Integrated Parking Management Plan and the Integrated Transportation Plan will be coming back for Council’s official approval on June 19 and July 3, respectively.
