The results will provide measures for several key performance indicators in our Strategic Plan and will be published in the Report to the Community.
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.
Beaumont has a long history of cooperation with our neighbouring municipalities. Our commitment to continue working with our neighbouring communities in the region remains high and we look forward to a transition whereby residents’ interests are kept at the forefront.

The three New Flyer Excelsior coaches are owned by Beaumont and are branded Beaumont Transit. Two buses will be in operation at any one time, with the third bus as a backup. The buses will be rotated through the schedule so that all there buses are used equally. The buses will be used by Beaumont Transit exclusively.
Beaumont has contracted ETS to provide the drivers, maintenance and storage of the buses. After consulting with other regional transit providers, ETS was deemed to be the best option for providing bus service to Beaumont. There are several reasons:
The buses will operate in the morning and afternoon at peak times. As ridership increases, additional trips per day may be added. Additional bus stops within Beaumont may be added also.
Beaumont is a growing community and having a commuter transit service is the first step in ensuring full mobility for students, workers and residents of all ages.

The new carts are owned by Beaumont. Previously, we rented the carts. Now, we have purchased the carts and we want to give you two clean new carts.
The cart manufacturer failed to meet the original delivery date; however, we are back on track. The carts will be replaced over a two week period starting Tuesday, September 12. Simply continue to follow your regular collection schedule and your carts will be replaced.
No. Waste collection services to residents will continue uninterrupted. Please continue to follow your current collection schedule.
The carts will be replaced over a two week period starting Tuesday, September 12. Simply continue to follow your regular collection schedule and your carts will be replaced.
The contract with the previous firm expired and through a competitive process, we negotiated a good deal with Can Pak Environmental. One of the cost saving measures is to purchase our own carts. In the long run, this will be cost-effective.
Yes. The app is the best way to keep up to date as we plan to push notifications to each collection zone. There is also an online tool on the website at www.beaumont.ab.ca/cartswap and on our Facebook page. Simply enter your address and the information for your home will appear.
To find out details for your neighbourhood, download Beaumont’s waste app called Keep it Green Beaumont. It’s available on the Apple store and Google Play. Enter your address and the cart swap information for your residence will be displayed.
Yes, the carts are 240 litres in volume.
There are a few options:
Unfortunately, no. Currently, your second waste cart is provided by the waste collection company. After we have distributed new carts to all homes we will begin providing second carts. Contact us and we will arrange to drop off an extra cart. The cost to buy a second cart is $60 plus monthly collection fees, which will be added to your utility bill. Homeowners who choose to have a second waste cart will now have to pay the collection fees (fees to be determined).
2017 cart replacement program only includes replacement of Green Organic and Grey Carts. If you have received mini organic compost that was sent originally in 2009-10 by previous company Evergreen, you may keep it.
The cart replacement costs will be offset by lower operating costs. Your utility bill will not increase as a result of this initiative (unless you have a second waste cart). Beaumont will now own an important component of our waste collection service – the carts themselves. Previously, we rented the carts.
Audits of Beaumont’s garbage shows that a great deal of our garbage is actually organic or recyclable. Tipping fees at the regional landfill increase substantially every year, so there is a large financial incentive for all communities to sort waste into recyclable, organics and garbage.
As good global citizens, it is up to each of us to reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible. For sorting information that can help you lower your waste output, check out the Keep it Green Beaumont waste app.
Beaumont brought forward to the Capital Region Board a new Municipal Development Plan (MDP), which lays out the general direction that the town will follow for development for the next 25+ years. Edmonton and five other communities blocked the MDP on the grounds that Edmonton can better service the nine quarter sections from TWP510 north to Beaumont’s northern corporate limit.
The Capital Region Board has made a decision and we respect the outcome. Naturally, we are disappointed. We believe our new Municipal Development Plan was an excellent plan that exceeded the requirements of the Capital Region Growth plan and the new Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan.
The land in question is part of the 21 quarter sections that Beaumont successfully annexed from Leduc County, effective Jan. 1, 2017.
The majority of communities in the region (18 of 24) supported Beaumont’s new MDP. While we had the majority of votes, we did not have the majority of the population. Edmonton’s population gives them the ability to veto CRB decisions.
While 18 municipalities voted to support Beaumont’s MDP, six communities, including Edmonton, did not. Although we had support from a majority of communities in the region, we did not have the population numbers. (A successful vote at the CRB requires approval of 2/3 of the communities and 2/3 of the population, so Edmonton always holds the power of veto.)
The new MDP took over two years to develop and represents hundreds of hours of residents’ and staff time spent preparing the document
We are moving ahead with an interim solution that will provide certainty for developers, builders and landowners. Going forward, we will revisit our options and work together with our regional partners to create a plan that meets the needs of Beaumont and that supports further regional cooperation.
Our goal is to continue working with the CRB member communities to build a strong and resilient region. Together, we can achieve seamless municipal boundaries through shared services, efficient infrastructure, and cooperative planning.
Further work on issue will be in the hands of the new mayor and council after the October 16 municipal election.
Edmonton blocked the MDP because it wants to annex Beaumont’s northern lands. Their intention is to force Beaumont into an agreement to allow Edmonton to formally annex the land from Beaumont.
Edmonton wants to create a “special study area” consisting of the nine quarter sections north of TWP510, to resolve the future servicing of the area.
No. The report was inaccurate. Edmonton blocked our Municipal Development Plan. That is all. They did not gain any land or additional jurisdiction.
The most common reason for carts not being emptied was they were not at the curb by 7 a.m. Other common reasons include that carts were left in the wrong place for pickup, waste was put in the organics (green) cart, cart lids were not fully closed or a vehicle was parked too close to the cart. The trucks require 1 m around your cart to be free from bags, parked cars, etc. If you believe you followed correct procedures, call the Town of Beaumont at 780-929-4300 to inquire.
As Beaumont grows, it is important to create a downtown area that our children and grandchildren can enjoy and be proud of. We need to have design guidelines in place so that the residents of Beaumont determine the future look of downtown. The DUDCP project boundaries are 52 Avenue to the north, 50 Street to the east, 50 Avenue to the south and 55 Street to the west. The DUDCP was approved at the July 14, 2015 Council meeting.
Beaumont is growing and the trend is likely to continue. We’ve more than doubled in size in 10 years, and we have to prepare for the future by having design guidelines in place. Like most towns and cities, residents have indicated they want a downtown neighbourhood that is an attractive, pedestrian friendly, mixed-use destination with a variety of social, cultural, commercial and retail opportunities.

Owning land in our community gives us options and flexibility for the future.
False alarms divert valuable policing resources that can otherwise remain available for valid calls for police help.
