Neighbourhood Renewal Program

The Neighbourhood Renewal Program is a cost-effective, long-term strategic approach to address infrastructure needs such rebuilding and renewing roads, sidewalks and the underground networks.

Every year local roadways are visually inspected to assess the condition of pavement, curbs and sidewalks. Deficiencies are compared with previous ratings, then averaged for the neighbourhood. This average determines the kind of renewal needed. Factors affecting selection and timing include infrastructure condition, budget and coordination with utilities.

Renewal work varies depending on the state of neighbourhood infrastructure, by combining reconstruction, overlays and preventative maintenance, all of Beaumont’s neighbourhood can be improved. These benefits neighbourhoods quicker and at a lower cost than a full reconstruction program.

The Neighbourhood Renewal Program is designed for the following:

  • Bring infrastructure up to current design and construction standards;
  • Improve pedestrian safety and accessibility;
  • Add curb ramps to intersections;
  • Install lower profile roll-faced curbs or straight face curbs based on design requirements and surrounding environment; and
  • Consider curb extensions at pedestrian crossings near schools, community halls and playgrounds.
  • With any construction, there are always challenges, and this is amplified when construction takes place in established neighbourhoods. It is never the intention of Beaumont or the contractor to cause any inconvenience.
