2018 Community Assessment
Community AssessmentPhase 3 – What we Heard
We heard from more than 700 Banff residents who participated in community conversations this summer to identify what makes Banff great and what we can do better as a community.

The input will help guide future planning, programs and activities within the Town of Banff and other community partners.

We analyzed thousands of comments and grouped common ideas into themes. Elements in one theme often overlap with other themes. Any concerns or suggestions that are outside the Town of Banff’s responsibility will be shared with relevant organizations.
