Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre Ground Breaking of healthy lifestyles, and I am I’m confident that the expansion and modernization of Beaumont Sports and Recreation Centre is an important step for not only Beaumont’s future but this region’s future. We are working together to improve our whole area’s livability and affordable recreation destination for area families,” said Mayor John Stewart, Town of Beaumont. “We will continue to collaborate to ensure we provide right services at the right time, to the residents of our community and Beaumont,” said Mayor Tanni Doblanko, County of Leduc.

On October 12, 2018 Mayor John Stewart (Beaumont), Mayor Tanni Doblanko (Leduc County) and Honourable Shaye Anderson (Minister Municipal Affairs) officially broke ground on the new Beaumont Sports and Recreation Centre (BSRC). “Recreation Centre are hubs of the community, places where families gather, friends meet and children learn skills that they’ll carry with them for their whole lives. Construction of Beaumont Sport and Recreation Centre will allow residents to engage in regular sports and physical activities, promoting the adoption

Located at 5001 Rue Eaglemont, adjacent to the existing Aqua-Fit pool, the new, BSRC will have a NHL sized ice surface, indoor fieldhouse, high school gymnasium, climbing wall and suspended running track for youth. Construction for the expansion and modernization of BSRC started on October 1, 2018, with an expected completion date in mid-July 2020. Beaumont Council approved $29.5 million dollar budget towards the expansion and modernization of BSRC.

Edmonton Metropolitan Region united by transit model Residents and businesses in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region are a step closer to a more convenient and integrated transit service between all 13 communities and counties as a result of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed Oct. 11, 2018 to explore how to establish a Regional Transit Services Commission. The MOU outlines how the Edmonton Metropolitan Region partners could voluntarily work together to set up and operate inter-municipal routes, leaving local service with existing transit agencies. A Regional Transit Services Commission would provide more integrated and reliable movement between nearby communities than the current mix of transit services.

The Government of Alberta has provided $3.7 million to support behind-the-scenes work to set up the commission. The goal would be to have the new commission begin inter-municipal operation after 2020. For more information: edmonton.ca/projects_plans/transit/ regional-transit-services-commission.aspx
