A document created by the Town of Canmore that contains all the best words you need to know to engage in constructive conversation with council and town planners. 

NRCB (Natural Resources Conservation Board) Decision, 1992

The large-scale resort project that was originally proposed by Three Sisters required a review of an environmental impact assessment by the provincial Natural Resources Conservation Board before the Town could consider any municipal approvals. The decisions that came out of this review have impacted the shape and scale of the development, as well as the Town of Canmore's ability to affect what happens on the property.
