Development in Beaumont’s downtown is guided by the Central Area Redevelopment Plan (CARP). The CARP has been in place since 1986 and it provides a framework for encouraging and guiding development and redevelopment in the central area of Beaumont. In 2009, the CARP was updated and just this past year, further community engagement has been taking place to update and ensure there is a shared vision for the Centre-Ville District.
Our residents see the Centre-Ville District as a place where people want to gather, live, work and enjoy. As a result of the 2009 update, the CCMU was created, which explicitly discourages auto-oriented uses like drive-thrus, gas stations, car repair shops, and large surface parking lots.
