Turner Valley Economic Development Plan
- New Directions -
The Town of Turner Valley has completed the final draft of its economic development plan, focusing on creating a vision for Turner Valley to follow as it strives to improve investment and community development options. The plan will help guide the community in its future planning.
We are very fortunate that the Province of Alberta has allowed us to pursue the exciting opportunity of developing this Town of Turner Valley Economic Development Plan – New Directions by providing funding through the Rural Community Adaptation Program.
In addition to establishing a new pathway for the Town of Turner Valley, the plan also addresses two major areas of interest in detail; the need to optimize use of municipal downtown land to offer expansion areas for commercial growth opportunities and the need to develop sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities.
To accommodate this, consideration was given to the redevelopment of the east side of Main Street which is the current location of one ball diamond and a campground with unserviced lots. This coincided with strong community desire to relocate both the campground and the ball diamond. Relocation plans allow for the creation of a recreation node combining both campground and ball diamond activities adjacent to an area zoned to provide service support to recreation vehicles.
Turner Valley Council invites comments about the plan from the public, municipal neighbours and project stakeholders. Comments can be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org
