Municipal Affairs: Diamond Valley, One Year Later

Welcome to "Municipal Affairs," the show dedicated to delving deep into the matters that shape municipalities across Canada.

Today we delve into the heart of Diamond Valley, a community that has witnessed a transformative year since the historic amalgamation of Turner Valley and Black Diamond.

With me, we have two distinguished guests who have played pivotal roles in shaping the destiny of this amalgamated city.

Joining us for this significant discussion, we have Diamond Valley Mayor Barry Crane, who steered the ship of Turner Valley through the amalgamation process, and Diamond Valley Deputy Mayor Brendan Kelly, who led the charge for progress in Black Diamond prior to amalgamation.

Last November we sat down with these two men regarding the lead-up amalgamation process. One year later here are and we're here to reflect on the journey, the trials, the triumphs, and the collaborative efforts that have defined the very essence of Diamond Valley.

From the very first election to the intricate negotiations that brought these communities together, it has been a year of unprecedented change for the newest community in Alberta.

We will uncover the challenges that have tested the mettle of this united city, from the integration of services to the preservation of unique identities. But, more importantly, we celebrate the remarkable achievements and milestones that have cemented Diamond Valley's place on the map.

So, let's take a moment to honour the spirit of togetherness and progress, as we embark on this insightful journey through the prism of Diamond Valley's remarkable transformation. Stay with us as we explore the amalgamation's impact on local businesses, infrastructure development, and the future trajectory of this burgeoning community.

This is Municipal Affairs.
