Everyone in our community should have a place to call home, which is why I’m committed to addressing housing issues in Banff. A supporter of appropriate housing for all, I will spend the next four years dedicated to working through short-term and long-term solutions recommended in the Community Housing Strategy.
Let’s keep the momentum of the transit solutions implemented for the summer of 2017 rolling into the future. As the number of vehicles to the Town of Banff increase, mass transit is an ideal way to move people through our roadways with low environmental impacts. I believe strengthening our transit system in the Bow Valley and beyond is essential to reducing vehicle volumes during busy times.
When asked if Banff was an affordable place to live in the 2017 Citizen Satisfaction Survey, 61% of people said no. From housing to food security, I’m committed to making it more affordable for Banffites to live, work, and play here through supporting low cost initiatives.
In the last municipal election 1,878 Banffites cast their vote, which was 259 voters more than the 2010 election. Just like in 2013, I’m super passionate about seeing that number increase because I believe voting is one of the best ways to support your vision for the future of Banff.
What is the greatest challenge facing elected officials in the community when it comes to planning for the future of the community?
