Environmental Master Plan
The Town of Banff is looking to continue its tradition as an environmental leader, adopting and implementing innovative programs to protect and enhance the natural environment. The development of an Environmental Master Plan will help create a road map to a sustainable future for our community, fulfilling one of the seven key elements council's four-year Strategic Plan, 2015-2018.

The Process
The development of the Environmental Master Plan will take place from now until November 2018, when a plan will be presented to council for approval. Community input will be an important part of the plan development, and Banff residents, visitors, businesses and community groups will be actively involved in the process.


Get Involved
Phase 2 of the Environmental Master Plan development process took place from June 8 to July 3, offering the public a chance to share ideas through an online survey, pop-up engagement stations in Central Park and at an interactive sounding board.

The project team is now reviewing community insights received during the first phase of engagement, and will use this input to begin drafting the Environmental Master Plan. Opportunities to provide feedback on the draft plan will be available later this summer/fall, when the next phase of engagement is launched.

Thanks to all those who have shared their insights to help shape this important community plan. We look forward to your continued input in the plan development process.
