Transportation Master Plan

Our Connectivity: Transportation Master Plan 

Beaumont’s first Transportation Master Plan, Our Connectivity is currently in the final stages of community review and approval. Read through this page to understand the plan and the development process behind it. There is an online engagement opportunity running between May 25 and June 22, 2020. The City of Beaumont is looking to “Close the Loop” with the community by checking in on how the plan now reflects previous engagement completed.

Project Development 

Our Connectivity was initiated in 2016, at the same time as Our Complete Community, the current Municipal Development Plan. The Municipal Development Plan is a high level planning document that sets forth future land use for the municipality.

The Transportation Master Plan was developed over the course of 2016 and 2017, with multiple opportunities for public input. In 2018 and 2019, the plan was further developed based on this engagement, best practices, and policy direction from other municipal planning documents.

An Open House for the Transportation Master Plan was held on January 22 and 23, 2020. The purpose of the Open House was to update the community on the status of the project and provide a high level overview of the plan.

The project is now in its last stage of engagement to “Close the Loop” online with the public.

At the Committee of the Whole meeting on May 19, Our Connectivity was presented to Council for initial review. Later in 2020, Our Connectivity will be presented to Council based on the public engagement and final review for approval by resolution.

Documentation of each step is provided on the side under the “Document Archive” section.

Close the Loop Engagement

Now that Our Connectivity is in the final stages of community review, the City of Beaumont is hoping to “Close the Loop” with the community. This means we’re reconnecting to ensure that the feedback we received in developing the plan reflects what’s now inside the plan.

As described within the prior section, community engagement shaped the development of the plan. We want to ensure that the community’s perspectives collected through this engagement are reflected within the plan.
