Community Standards Bylaw

Beaumont’s Community Standards Bylaw

The City of Beaumont is developing a Community Standards Bylaw to address a range of concerns raised by residents. The bylaw intends to provide transparent, enforceable rules that maintain and enhance our city’s livability by encouraging a safe, clean, welcoming, and inclusive community.

From June 14 to July 4, 2022, Beaumont residents, businesses and others shared their thoughts on a new bylaw, which has a range of proposed provisions, including rules for:

  • Construction waste and littering
  • Bullying
  • Noise control
  • Nuisance, derelict and unsightly properties
  • Graffiti
  • Drinking alcohol in public
  • Panhandling

If approved, the Community Standards Bylaw would also replace other existing bylaws, such as the Cannabis Consumption Bylaw, Nuisance and Unsightly Premises Bylaw, and the Snow Removal Bylaw. Consolidating these bylaws into one makes the standards easier for residents to find and understand and for City staff to enforce.

Input received from the survey will help guide the draft bylaw that will be presented to City Council for approval later in 2022.
