Council Clips – February 4, 2020

Safe Parking Pilot Program

From May 4 until October 2 this year, the Town will be piloting a new program that will provide safe overnight parking to individuals who work in the Bow Valley and live in their vehicles. Participants are required to meet eligibility criteria, sign a user agreement, and pay $10.00 per night.  Safe Parking sites will be scattered throughout the Town and be available for public use during the day. For more information visit Safe Park Pilot Program.

Heliport Lease Renewal

The lease for Canmore’s heliport expires on November 30, 2021. The lease contains an automatic renewal clause under which Alpine Helicopters has submitted a request to renew for a further 10 years.  Council is interested in receiving stakeholder feedback on the conditions of the lease prior to renewal and so directed the Town’s Heliport Monitoring Committee to meet with stakeholder groups. For more information visit Heliport Monitoring Committee.
