History / Biographical
The Banff Townsite Provisional Administration Board was established in 1975 in response to an initiative from the Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs, Judd Buchanan. Members were appointed from the local population. The board's duty, to be completed by 1977, was to prepare proposals for a local self-government body responsible for municipal duties including administration, finance, taxation, leasehold and land rental issues. The Board co-operated with other local and regional organizations, governments and with the Jasper Townsite Committee. The P.A.B. arose from task forces including the Banff Townsite Options Review Committee (T.O.R.C.) which dissolved in favor of the board in 1975. A School Board plebiscite in 1976, while not binding, suggested public opinion did not favor self-government at that time.
Scope & Content
Fonds consists of board records in the form of constitution, minutes, correspondence, reports, etc. of Banff Townsite Provisional Administration Board, 1975-1977, and Banff Townsite Options Review Committee, 1974-1975. Includes Executive Assistant's files containing Banff Townsite Options Review Committee and Banff Townsite Administration Study records, correspondence, reports, and Jasper Townsite Committee records. Provides insight into self-government issue and the various bodies involved including Parks Canada. Banff School Board, Banff Advisory Council, provincial and federal authorities.
