To grow, Beaumont requires additional lands to attract industrial and commercial development within its boundaries. Industrial development provides a strong, viable tax base to fund more infrastructure, facilities and services.
Beaumont has a long history of cooperation with our neighbouring municipalities. Our commitment to continue working with our neighbouring communities in the region remains high and we look forward to a transition whereby residents’ interests are kept at the forefront.

Beaumont could market itself as Alberta’s newest city, a tactic that is currently being used successfully by Chestermere.
Being a city, combined with our recent successful annexation and the fact that we are Canada’s 5th fastest growing community, will attract more non-residential and residential development. Non-residential development will bring in proportionally more taxes to help pay for the amenities residents want and need while not causing undue pressures on residential taxes.

As Beaumont grows, it is important to create a downtown area that our children and grandchildren can enjoy and be proud of. We need to have design guidelines in place so that the residents of Beaumont determine the future look of downtown. The DUDCP project boundaries are 52 Avenue to the north, 50 Street to the east, 50 Avenue to the south and 55 Street to the west. The DUDCP was approved at the July 14, 2015 Council meeting.
Beaumont is growing and the trend is likely to continue. We’ve more than doubled in size in 10 years, and we have to prepare for the future by having design guidelines in place. Like most towns and cities, residents have indicated they want a downtown neighbourhood that is an attractive, pedestrian friendly, mixed-use destination with a variety of social, cultural, commercial and retail opportunities.
