Community Standards Bylaw

Beaumont’s Community Standards Bylaw

The City of Beaumont has developed a Community Standards Bylaw to address a range of concerns raised by residents. The bylaw provides transparent, enforceable rules that maintain and enhance our city’s livability by encouraging a safe, clean, welcoming, and inclusive community.

The new bylaw replaces other existing bylaws, such as the Cannabis Consumption Bylaw, Nuisance and Unsightly Premises Bylaw, Noise Abatement Bylaw, and the Snow Removal Bylaw. Consolidating these bylaws into one makes the standards easier for residents to find and understand and for City staff to enforce.

Thank you to all residents that participated in the Community Standards survey in 2022; your input has helped create this bylaw.

Construction waste: help keep our community clean

The Community Standards Bylaw has rules that everyone doing construction (commercial or residential, and large or small projects, from new housing developments to building a deck) must follow.  

  • Construction sites must have waste containers.
  • Waste must be placed in the container and be properly secured so that it doesn’t blow away.
  • Don’t store or accumulate loose material on a construction site unless it’s stacked or stored in an orderly way.

Weed control: keep Beaumont beautiful

Make sure you're following the Community Standards Bylaw by minimizing weeds on your property and properly maintaining adjacent boulevards. Make sure you're mowing regularly, removing fallen leaves and notifying the City if any trees need maintenance.
