Notice to all property owners, property managers and merchants in Whistler Village
The Resort Municipality of Whistler would like to remind all owners, property managers and merchants in Whistler Village of the importance of keeping the walkways, stairs and landings of stairs adjacent to their stores and properties free of ice and snow.

In order to ensure that the maintenance of the previously mentioned areas is consistent throughout the Village area, Municipal Council enacted Bylaw No. 836, 1991. This is a bylaw to amend Property Maintenance Bylaw No. 810, 1990.
