Banff Community Plan

Banff Community Plan in 2022

There will be community consultation to update this 10-year plan scheduled for 2022, following the finalization by the Government of Canada the Banff National Park Management Plan.

Our Vision for the Future

The Banff Community Plan was developed by Banff residents. It sets the values that guide our decision-making and tells us how we will meet the challenges of the future.

Town council adopted the Community Plan in 2008.

The Community Plan is our most important tool for long-range planning. It guides our strategic priority setting and financial planning. The plan focuses on three areas:

  • A sense of place - our environmental goals
  • Fostering a healthy community - our social and cultural goals
  • Local economy - our economic goals

Every year, Town Council sets strategic priorities aimed at achieving the objectives of the Banff Community Plan.
