Banff Council Update – April 14th meeting

Posted on by rob.murray


Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen was back on the show with me this morning to give us a rundown of Banff council happenings. Monday’s meeting was an opportunity to honour Chip Olver who has now been on Banff council for two decades! They also looked at 2013 financials and discussed Cave Avenue reconstruction which is slated to take place this spring/summer. We also talked about the parking survey, and while it’s an option the town is definitely considering Mayor Sorensen wanted to stress that it’s not a done deal.

Canmore Bouldering Cave

Canmore Bouldering Cave

The Canmore Bouldering Cave is in danger of closing and needs the help of the local climbing community! Will Gadd tells me the Cave is an awesome place to just hang out, climb 24/7, train, bring the kids, and just connect with other climbers and friends.

Due to financial constraints, high rents, and other such issues that pretty much all local businesses have to deal with, the Canmore Bouldering Cave is looking at their balance books and realizing they can’t sustain themselves with their current membership roster.  However, with maybe 10 or 15 new signups the picture would be a lot brighter!  They’re not looking for handouts, but others who would pay to share the same experience current members have come to enjoy.  To find out more, check out their Facebook page, or get in touch with Will through his website.  They’ve set this coming Sunday as decision day so if you’re interested don’t delay!
