Rob and Tanya discuss many local issues in the Insider this week, with special guest Canmore Mayor John Borrowman dropping by to weigh in on a couple of subjects:

-Mayor Borrowman on why he’s currently supporting the Canmore paid parking/free transit draft plan, a potential future intercept parking lot, and whether there’s been enough public engagement based on the new revisions to the idea.


-Mayor Borrowman on the current status of the Land Use Bylaw rewrite and the new stipulations on maximum home size for future development.


-Innovate Canmore adapting to the loss of a major tax credit.


-Concerns raised over a potential new hotel development in Harvie Heights.


-The importance of engaging and providing feedback into Banff’s parking management plan.


-Lafarge’s expansion of their quarry and the duality of feelings about a critical local employer and supplier of an essential resource blasting into the side of a mountain.


-Further musings on parking and valley-wide fare free transit.
