Residents are invited to help make winter in Beaumont more enjoyable for everyone.
On February 21, residents can visit our booth between 1 and 4:30 p.m. during the City’s Family Day event in Four Seasons Park to:
- learn more about a Winter City Strategy for Beaumont;
- add your two cents; and
- pick up some Winter City cold-weather gear.
Then, from February 21 – March 7, residents can complete an online survey at www.beaumont.ab.ca/wintercity and provide their ideas about what should be included in the Winter City Strategy. Participants can also enter a draw for cool winter-themed prizes.
Beaumont’s Winter City Strategy is intended to improve winter activities, infrastructure, and public places with the goal of fostering a winter environment that is more comfortable, enjoyable, and safer for all residents.
Winter is viewed by many as a cold, dark season, where people stay inside away from the frosty weather. However, with some imagination, community spirit, and other intentional actions, winter can be a magical time of year – something everyone can celebrate in our community.
Last fall, we asked what was important to residents in winter, what made winter in Beaumont great, and how it can improve. We heard from more than 100 Beaumont residents.
Based on their thoughts and comments, along with our research findings, we’ve identified four key areas that the strategy will focus on. Each of these key areas has big ideas that will guide the creation of this plan.
The strategy is expected to be complete in summer 2022. Residents’ input will help us write the objectives and action items in the strategy, and ultimately help make winter in Beaumont more fun and safer for everyone.
