Strategic Plan 2012 - 2017
The Town of Beaumont Strategic Plan includes vision, mission, values key focus areas, strategic outcomes, and measurable initiatives that will continue to be reviewed on an annual basis.
Our vision for the future
A vibrant community that builds on a wealth of personal and collective potential, and on its French heritage, making Beaumont the community of choice to live, work, play and invest.
To provide quality programs and services to residents, visitors and the business community so that life is better in Beaumont.
Council and staff of the Town of Beaumont believe that the following four values must govern their behaviours in all that they do:
Accountability: accept responsibility for our decisions and actions.
Excellence: continuously strive to innovate and to meet expectations.
Integrity: be honest and open.
Respect: hold colleagues, the community and all those serving the community in high regard.
KEY FOCUS AREAS
- The Town of Beaumont’s residents, business community and municipal staff feel fully aware of, and understand the Town’s direction and decisions taken on their behalf.
- Beaumont becomes a destination of choice due to features such as the church on the hill, the renewed “Centre-ville”, its reputation as the town with a French flair, and through appropriate recreational/entertainment programs.
- That Beaumont’s current residential/commercial tax base ratio of 95:5 be moved towards a preferred ratio of 80:20 through the practice of aggressive economic development and the assignment and achievement of yearly targets.
- That Beaumont make substantial gains in the redevelopment of “Centre-ville” into an attractive area; while it is acknowledged that such a project is not likely to be completed within the time frame of this Strategic Plan, significant gains must be made before the opportunity for creating something unique to the benefit of the community is missed.
