Public Input Opportunities

Banff Community Plan 

The Banff Community Plan is our "plan of plans" about the community's vision, our 10-year goals and how we manage the limited area of the Town of Banff. In other communities, it is often called a Municipal Development Plan. Community consultation to update this plan is scheduled to start in June 2023.

What’s Next for Banff Avenue Pedestrian Zone?

Each summer since 2020, the Town of Banff has created a pedestrian zone by temporarily closing to vehicles two blocks of Banff Avenue, first as a pandemic safety measure, then as an economic recovery attraction and visitor experience.

Currently, the Town does not plan to bring back the pedestrian zone next year, but Town Council wants public feedback on the features people liked and didn't like from the pedestrian zone, and permanent infrastructure improvements that could be incorporated into a future for the 2-block area.

 Community Social Assessment 

A Community Social Assessment aims to create a snapshot in time of a community's social well-being and vitality - our strengths, assets and opportunities, along with our issues and challenges. Community consultation to update the assessment is planned to start in May 2023.
