Pincher Creek Moves Forward with Business Strategy

October 16, 2019

The Town of Pincher Creek announces the launch of a community building project to design an economic development strategy.  “Our town needs a coordinated plan that helps our businesses to thrive and grow as a key part of a vibrant community” says Mayor Don Anderberg. “Our community depends on the success of our businesses in so many ways. It is incumbent upon us to do what we can to foster their success.”

Council and the Town administration will be working with InnoVisions and Associates, a consulting firm specializing in economic development, on the multi-faceted project entitled ‘Building a Community Economic Development Strategy for Pincher Creek’. InnoVisions will be leading the project, supported by Senior Administration, and will look at the community through the lens of business to ensure that we are best utilizing our assets and advantages to encourage business investment.    This project is possible because of the funding received by Alberta Economic Development, Trade and Tourism through the Community and Regional Economic Support (CARES) program.  

Extensive community engagement will take place through interviews with business owners, community leaders and interested members of the public.  This consultation begins now and extends to January 2020. By the end of March 2020, the work will be completed, and the Town will report back to the community on key findings and recommendations for future development.

“At the end of this project, we will have some clear strategies and plans on where we are going, how we are going to get there and who’s going to do what to ensure a dynamic business community” says Laurie Wilgosh, Town of Pincher Creek CAO.
