The City of Beaumont supports public engagement to identify, understand and develop strategies that reflect the needs and concerns of residents and stakeholders. The City values public engagement for the information that it provides decision-makers to make well-informed decisions about municipal policies, programs, services, and initiatives.
Beaumont’s approach to public participation is guided by best practices. The International Association of Public Participation Spectrum is used to identify the type of engagement being used. The type of engagement will be determined by what decision is being made and how the public can be involved with this process. It can be focused on gaining input from the public, listening and learning from the public, collaborating with the public, or empowering the public.
