With the introduction of the commuter transit service in September 2017, Beaumont is well positioned to be a partner of a regional transit strategy and will likely be a key member in any future discussions that may occur.
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.
Remaining a town will not inhibit growth. People will continue to move here because it is their right to do so if they wish. Besides, who wouldn’t want to move to Beaumont? Projections indicate our population will exceed 40,000 people by 2040.
