Environmental Master Plan

The Environmental Master Plan is a strategic plan that will guide Beaumont’s progress towards our environmental goals over the next three decades. 

Background

The City of Beaumont has launched a process to review and update our 2013 Environmental Master Plan (EMP). The new EMP includes a number of targeted ‘focus areas’ – air, community design, ecology, energy, waste and water – through which environmental progress will be made and measured. It provides an integrated approach to environmental sustainability, where different departments within the City of Beaumont and the community at large will work together efficiently to achieve environmental goals and support positive environmental impacts.

The planning process explores how the EMP could promote alignment with other City plans, create new policies and bylaws, develop new programs aimed at specific environmental functions, and test new environmental technologies through pilot processes. 

The review and update of the EMP is taking place from fall 2020 to summer 2021, when the final version of the plan will be presented to City of Beaumont Council.
