The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines replaced the French Village Design Guidelines providing a clear and direct implementation approach for urban design elements in Beaumont. The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines incorporates winter design principles and considers various building typologies such as mixed uses, commercial, civic and institutional built forms. It also allows for a more streamlined approval process that integrates the design elements with the development permit applications.
The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines (BUDG) includes three documents: BUDG Introduction: Outlines the purpose, goals and design principles of the design guidelines. It lays out the traditional and contemporary French character and how these are applied in Beaumont. It also explains how BUDG is being applied and implemented in Centre-Ville and Beaumont-wide.
Beaumont-Wide Urban Design Guidelines: Provide guidance on all lands and building typologies within the City of Beaumont except Centre-Ville, as established in the Municipal Development Plan.
Centre-Ville Urban Design Guidelines: Provide guidance on all lands and building typologies within the Centre-Ville area established in the Municipal Development Plan and the Our Centre-Ville Area Redevelopment Plan.
