Canmore is a small town in Alberta, located near Banff National Park.
The Town of Canmore includes a Complete Streets policy in its 2016 Municipal Development Plan. The plan commits Canmore to building “Complete Streets and a trail network that prioritizes and encourages walking, cycling, and transit while accommodating the private automobile within a reasonable capacity” (p. 63). It aims to build a network of Complete Streets that accommodates all ages and abilities in a 4-season environment. Implementing a Complete Streets approach in Canmore is one of the five goals of the Development Plan.
Canmore’s 2018 Integrated Transportation Plan (ITP) update contains a dedicated section to its Complete Streets Approach, including design guidance. A Complete Streets policy was first introduced in Canmore’s 2014 ITP. This policy went on to inform a number of projects, including Canmore’s first Complete Streets rehabilitation on Spring Creek Drive.
