Intermunicipal Economic Development Strategy (IEDS)

The Towns of Black Diamond and Turner Valley, in recognizing the shared potential of their communities, are developing the Black Diamond - Turner Valley Intermunicipal Economic Development Strategy (IEDS). The strategy will leverage existing economic development work done by both communities and advance innovative strategies that stimulate shared growth and prosperity.

Intermunicipal Economic Development Strategy (IEDS) Online Business Survey

To assist with the development of the Intermunicipal Economic Development Strategy, the towns have developed an Online Business Survey to seek input and insight from the business community in both Black Diamond and Turner Valley. It will help gauge strengths, challenges and priority areas for improving business satisfaction as well as identify concrete strategies and actions to support broader economic development goals.

Individual business answers will be kept strictly confidential and the survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Only the summary results will be shared publicly. Businesses are encouraged to complete the survey during the month of August and may visit either town’s website or social media pages to access the survey.

Intermunicipal Economic Development Committee (IEDC) Members Appointed

Black Diamond and Turner Valley Councils are excited to announce the appointments of six members-at-large to the newly formed Intermunicipal Economic Development Committee (IEDC).
