Friendship Agreement

In October of 2012, the Councils of Black Diamond and Turner Valley signed a Friendship Agreement.  

The Friendship Agreement outlines how the communities will move forward, together.  It addresses three main themes:  promotion of intermunicipal and community relationships, development of communication protocols and direction relating to problem-solving and conflict resolution.  Within each theme, roles and responsibilities are defined, clearly setting expectations and accountability for Council and staff.

Since the original agreement was signed, Councils continue to recognize the importance of strengthening ties between our two communities and our ability to increase intermunicipal cooperation and efficiencies.
