The Town of Black Diamond's Strategic Plan is a living document. Council and Staff meet annually to review the plan and determine what works well for us and where we can offer improvements. In 2009, the planning session included a work group that focussed on merging the strategic plan with the Town's Municipal Sustainability Plan. Both documents were currently in use by the Town, however it was felt that it would be beneficial to put them together to create a better-aligned vision for the future, and an action plan to assist in achieving that vision. The strategic plan therefore now includes Appendix A, which is the Municipal Sustainability Plan, as well as Appendix B, which contains a listing of future action items. The working session for the 2011-2014 plan worked to better align the Strategic Plan with the Sustainability Plan. You can download the Strategic Plan for 2011-2014 here, please note that it is a long document, and may take some time to complete.
