Sorensen Red Carpet

I caught up with Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen after she made her way to work via the Red Carpet set up on Bear Street today.

It’s a new initiative they do every Tuesday encouraging alternate forms of transportation like walking or biking, and that was also the subject of part of our discussion today regarding the new two-way greenway lane trial they’re planning for a section of Banff Ave as well as the new allowance for skateboards on the Bear Street woonerff.  We also discussed the weekend Heritage Train Station Farmers Market which council approved as a trial with conditions after initially rejecting it earlier this summer, support for Banff PRIDE, and the new Central Park Natural Playground.
