Annexation Successful!

As of January 1, 2017 Beaumont has been successful with its proposal to annex 21 quarter sections of land. Annexation is the act of transferring land from one municipality into another municipality.  This is not taking ownership of this land; it is just a change in jurisdiction.


We are pleased to learn that our carefully-planned and researched annexation proposal was deemed to be in the best interests of Beaumont and the region and we are happy with the outcome.


Our commitment to continue working with our neighboring communities in the region remains high and we look forward to a transition whereby residents’ interests are kept at the forefront.


For the residents of Beaumont, this announcement will ensure our community can diversify its tax base and continue to provide quality programs and services to residents moving forward.

WHAT IS ANNEXATION?

Annexation is the act of transferring land from one municipality into another municipality.  This is not taking ownership of this land; it is just a change in jurisdiction.


WHY ANNEXATION?


Beaumont is a vibrant, growing, young community. Council and Administration are working hard to maintain these qualities for the long-term future.
To grow, Beaumont requires additional lands to attract industrial and commercial development within its boundaries. Industrial development provides a strong, viable tax base to fund more infrastructure, facilities and services.


WHY DO WE NEED THE LAND?


As our community and region continues to prosper, Beaumont and existing commercial properties will face increasing demands to ensure these can be delivered on an ongoing basis to support growing families and strong neighborhoods.
