The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines
The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines replaced the French Village Design Guidelines providing a clear and direct implementation approach for urban design elements in Beaumont. The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines incorporates winter design principles and considers various building typologies such as mixed uses, commercial, civic and institutional built forms. It also allows for a more streamlined approval process that integrates the design elements with the development permit applications.
The Beaumont Urban Design Guidelines (BUDG) includes three documents:
Outlines the purpose, goals and design principles of the design guidelines. It layouts the traditional and contemporary French character and how these are applied in Beaumont. It explains how BUDG is being applied and implemented in Centre-Ville and Beaumont-wide.
Beaumont-Wide Urban Design Guidelines:
Provide guidance on all lands and building typologies within the City of Beaumont except Centre-Ville, as established in the Municipal Development Plan.
Centre-Ville Urban Design Guidelines:
Provide guidance on all lands and building typologies within the Centre-Ville area established in the Municipal Development Plan and the Our Centre-Ville Area Redevelopment Plan.
The Downtown Urban Design Concept Plan
The Downtown Urban Design Concept Plan (DUDC) presents a strong vision for the future heart of Beaumont. It is designed to invigorate the downtown area by encouraging more mixed-use development along with streetscape and park improvements. It illustrates how the community wishes to develop and mature over time in hopes of attracting high-quality development.
