Wildfire Hazards Cleanup Day

Free pickup is available for gathered vegetation – branches, stems, and yard debris – on May 10. Contact 403.762.1240 to schedule your pickup. Visit banff.ca/FireSmart for more information on how to do your wildfire hazard cleanup.
Register for a Resident Parking Permit
Visitor-Pay Parking is coming to Banff in late June. All Banff residents will be able to register for a Resident Parking Permit starting May 14. The permit allows residents to park for free in the paid-parking zone, and on the resident-only parking streets downtown. To get a permit, you need to have proof of residency in Banff. Make sure your vehicle registration is up to date with your current address before the system goes live. To update your registration, visit a local registry office. Find the Banff Registry in the Bison Courtyard, or online at thebanffregistry.com. For more information on the permit, visit banff.ca/ResidentPermit.
