5. PUBLIC HEARINGS
a. Bylaw 927-18 - Lakeview Area Structure Plan
Invistec Consulting on behalf of 1994853 Alberta Ltd. has submitted an application for the Lakeview Area Structure Plan (Bylaw 927-18). Lakeview, (formally known as Plaines Royer), is located in the most southeast quarter section of Beaumont’s pre-2017 boundary, north of Highway 625, and west of Range Road 241.
An Area Structure Plan provides the planning and servicing framework for specific areas in the municipality and must be compliant with the Municipal Development Plan. The Lakeview Area Structure Plan is approximately 65 hectares and proposes a variety of land uses including: residential, mixed-use, commercial and open spaces. This plan also provides lands for two schools to meet the community’s growing student population. Lakeview plans to accommodate a population of 3,315 with a density of approximately 35 dwelling units per net residential hectare.
The Lakeview Area Structure Plan helps Beaumont to become a more complete community. It allows residents to have close access to goods and services to meet their daily needs by incorporating commercial development as well as a mixed-use area (for residential and commercial uses) within the community.

7. BUSINESS ITEMS - None
a. Bylaw 927-18 - Lakeview Area Structure Plan - 2nd & 3rd Reading
A Public Hearing was held earlier in the evening. The Lakeview Area Structure Plan meets many of the community’s needs by incorporating commercial uses as well as a mixed-use area (for residential and commercial uses) to provide residents with easy access to goods and services that meet their daily needs in close proximity to where they live. In response to the Beaumont’s large youth demographic, the Plan features a centrally located municipal reserve/park space to accommodate two school sites. The Lakeview Area Structure Plan is in alignment with all higher level plans and policies, including the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan and Beaumont’s Municipal Development Plan. As a member municipality of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Board, new neighbourhoods in Beaumont must meet all of the requirements of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan (including a density of 35 dwelling units per net residential hectare) to ensure that growth within the region is responsibly managed through compact and contiguous development. Appendix I of the Area Structure Plan summarizes how Lakeview meets the policies of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region Growth Plan

b. Bylaw 931-18 - Land Use Bylaw - Alcohol Retail Sales - 1st Reading
Currently, the Land Use Bylaw regulates the separation distance of liquor stores through the definitions of “Alcohol Sales – Major” and “Alcohol Sales – Minor.”
The current definitions of “Alcohol Sales – Major” and “Alcohol Sales – Minor” (liquor stores) have been in place since 2013. A 500 metre separation distance between liquor stores was included within the definitions of “Alcohol Sales – Major” and “Alcohol Sales – Minor” to prevent an overconcentration and proliferation of liquor stores which was intended to reduce the potential for negative impacts to residents and the community. There are six liquor stores in Beaumont (see Attachment 2); only two of them were built after 2013 and meet the 500 metre separation distance. An existing liquor store separation map and a jurisdiction comparison were provided for consideration.
This ByLaw would remove the 500 m required separation distance. Public input will be sought out following 1st reading.
