Why not build a giant intercept parking lot?
An intercept parking lot is one of the many ideas being explored by Town as a potential long-term solution. However, the Town of Banff has a fixed boundary; there is no existing space on the edge of our boundary to accommodate a parking lot of the size required on Town-owned land, and we can’t expand our boundary. Consequently, planning for this solution continues with the federal government and Parks Canada to acquire land for this purpose.
