The DUDCP will stimulate redevelopment of the Centre-Ville neighbourhood to create an attractive, mixed-use destination with a variety of social, cultural, commercial and retail opportunities. The DUDCP will encourage collaboration among landowners, developers and Beaumont in order to create a diverse core that encourages pedestrians and creates a central gathering place for residents. It will support our French-theme design guidelines. 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.
