The Town of Black Diamond is requesting qualifications from strategic planning consulting firms for the creation of the Town of Black Diamond Strategic Plan 2018-2022. 

The Plan will be used to provide the public with Council’s vision for the electoral term of office, and to guide the administrative team in carrying out that vision.

The Town of Black Diamond requires a Strategic Plan to establish a strategic direction and set measurable and achievable goals and objectives.  The Plan will be strength based and include Council-priority driven strategies; it will be created in collaboration with the Town of Black Diamond Council and the Management team, and will amalgamate relevant key themes from various other Town of Black Diamond plans.

This Plan will be a living document, able to adapt to the constantly changing political, economic and cultural environment.  It will take a proactive approach to opportunities and provide a vision for members of both Council and Administration to keep in mind while carrying out their duties.

This project will culminate in a document (the Plan), to be adopted by Council.  The Plan will contain strong, progressive, actionable, and realistic strategies, for the next 4 years, to assist Administration in achieving operational success.
