Active Transportation Feasibility Study
In 2023, the Municipality of Jasper contracted Associated Engineering to conduct an Active Transportation Feasibility Study. This work was funded by Infrastructure Canada’s Active Transportation Fund, part of Canada’s firs National Active Transportation Strategy. The feasibility study looks at what active transportation infrastructure could look like in Jasper.
The report appears on the September 12, 2023 Council agenda.

Culture & Recreation Facilities and Services Review
The Culture and Recreation Services and Facilities Review was undertaken from May 2019 into early 2020 and adopted by Council on July 6, 2021.
The purpose of the Review was to assess the current state of culture and recreation services and provide Council with strategic guidance that can inform priority setting and ensure that the Municipality’s resources achieve the greatest possible community benefit. The Review was necessary as the Municipality is facing rising operational costs and has a number of aging facilities that will require significant reinvestment in the short, mid, and long term.
Transportation Strategy & Action Plan
An assessment of Jasper’s demographics, current transportation landscape, potential transit markets, a jurisdictional scan of similar mountain/resort communities, and engagement with local businesses and community members were carried out for the development of this report. The findings from these activities culminated in a Strategy and Action Plan that will guide the municipality of Jasper and its surrounding community on implementation of the most feasible transportation options.

Asset Management Plan
Asset management planning is a critical step for the long-term, sustainable management of our community - yielding the best possible investment for municipal tax dollars and helping us qualify for provincial and federal infrastructure grant programs.
Maintaining existing infrastructure to accepted standards also helps us deliver quality, reliable services to residents and visitors.
- Includes condition assessments of water, sewer, roadways and sidewalks
- Facilities and fleet assessments coming later in 2017

The Plan is structured around the five pillars of sustainability: society, culture, economy, environment, and government.
Paper CopiesPaper copies are available at the Municipality of Jasper administration office, Parks Canada administration office and the Jasper Municipal Library.
Transportation Master Plan
We are looking to develop a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) that will provide a framework for the movement of people and goods around our community, and lay the foundation for future policy, planning and engineering initiatives. Given the role mobility plays in our daily lives, it's critical that the transportation network be compatible and supportive of the aspirations and vision of the community.
