I’ve been volunteering with the Community Housing Strategy committee for about a year now.  We started by agreeing on guiding principles, then moved on to interviewing people who run successful housing initiatives across the west.  Using what we learned, we came up with a draft vision and some ideas for ways that Banff could respond to the recommendations of the Housing Needs Study.

We turned all this into an “interim document” to let everyone know the directions we’re thinking of including in the Housing Strategy.  This document is available right now for public feedback at:


Housing is such an important issue for all Banffites.  I hope you will take the time to read the document (it’s relatively short) and provide your feedback online.
