Notice of Application to Relocate

At the November 24, 2021 BCMB Board meeting, the Board of Directors approved a moratorium on the relocation of existing depots until which time a depot mapping and siting criteria project is complete, and outcomes have been considered by the Board. In light of depot innovation and service abilities, this project is being undertaken to analyze population and service area data to make recommendation on potential improvements to BCMB processes and criteria to assist in siting depots going forward. At minimum, this moratorium on the relocation of existing depots is anticipated to be in place until the end of 2022 while this project work is completed. The pausing of relocations is necessary to ensure depots are sited effectively and are not in conflict with any outcomes resulting from this project in the interim.


Pursuant to policies established by the BCMB, any person who is directly affected by a proposed relocation may submit written concerns regarding the application to: info@bcmb.ab.ca

Written concerns must be submitted by the deadline specified in the Application details listed below. Submissions should be detailed and must include the reasoning behind their support or objection of the proposed relocation. Please quote the Application Number, identified below, in the subject line of your email.
