Bow Island town council gave their approval of the final draft of their economic development strategic plan at their Jan. 12 regular council meeting.
A year ago, the Town held an economic development strategic planning workshop to look at the purpose of economic development, and in future economic planning initiatives.
At the workshop, councilors addressed a number of items to be included in economic development: sustainable businesses, attracting and growing businessess, affordable land, opportunitis, population, employment labour pool, lifestyle, housing, recreational facilities, among others.
Dong a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis, they identified areas where the town excels and where there is room for improvement.
Through that they developed a stragetic plan that will guide the Town with their economic development goals.
The strategic plan will be reviewed annually, each fall.
