The Cranbrook in Motion Committee was formed to examine transportation planning and policy issues facing the City.

There is a significant relationship between transportation, land use, social needs, traffic safety, parking and the environment. The Committee will examine these connections, in the context of both short term and long term planning, and provide recommendations to City Council for all modes of local mobility. One position is available.

Cranbrook Public Library Board

Members of the Library Board form a corporation with the powers and duties given under the Library Act. The Board Applicant Process and information package is available at the Library or at www.cranbrook.ca. Three positions are available.

The objective of the committee is to provide information and insight on creating a livable, diverse and inclusive community. One position is available.
