JUNE 2021
Join the City of Beaumont on Sunday, July 4, 2021, as we light up the sky in celebration of our country’s independence! Please note, a few things have changed with this year's celebration.

Due to construction, we are unable to welcome visitors to Stewart Park for the fireworks show. Swimming and musical performances are also unavailable. We encourage residents to find viewing areas throughout the downtown area and support our local businesses. Additional information regarding the event and viewing areas will be available soon.

Stewart Park Renovation
The City of Beaumont prides itself on offering parks and recreation services that address the needs of every citizen. To keep up with the growth of the city and further enhance the quality of life for our residents, Beaumont has begun a complete renovation to Stewart Park. Renovations include a concrete walking trail throughout the length of the park, picnic/shade pavilions, two multi-generational and inclusive playgrounds, a gaga ball court, enhancements to the current skate park and basketball courts, increased parking facilities, connection of the park across Ninth and Tenth Streets, athletic fields and a new bandshell with modern sound and lighting equipment.

Renovation of the 11-acre park is expected to be complete by end of summer 2022. Beaumont is excited to enhance the quality of life downtown with the revitalization of Stewart Park providing a dynamic destination for families of all ages and a vibrant space for community events!

Keep Your City Safe - Contact 8-1-1 Before You Dig
Important information about natural gas pipelines near you!
Underground utility pipelines can be located anywhere, including under streets, sidewalks and private property – sometimes just inches below the surface. Hitting one of these pipelines while digging, planting or doing demolition work can cause serious injury, property damage and loss of utility service.
Whether you are planning to build a major development or just landscaping your yard, make sure to call 8-1-1.
How to Recognize a Natural Gas Leak
Be alert to signs you may see, hear or smell when there’s a natural gas leak.
LOOK - If you see a damaged connection to a natural gas appliance, dirt/water blowing into the air, a dry patch of grass, fire or an explosion near a pipeline.
LISTEN - If you hear unusual sounds like hissing, whistling or roaring.
SMELL - If you smell the distinctive odor* of natural gas.
*Some persons may not be able to smell the odor because they have a diminished sense of smell, olfactory fatigue (normal, temporary inability to distinguish an odor after prolonged exposure to it), temporary loss of smell due to COVID-19, or because the odor is being masked or hidden by other odors that are present, such as cooking, damp, musty or chemical odors. In addition, certain pipeline and soil conditions can cause odor fade (the loss of odorant so that it is not detectable by smell).
If You Smell Natural Gas, Suspect a Leak or Damage Has Occured:

  • CALL SoCalGas at 1-800-427-2200 from a safe location.
  • CALL 911 promptly, from a safe location, if there
  • is damage resulting in a natural gas leak that
  • may endanger life, cause bodily harm or property
  • damage.
  • DO NOT smoke or light a match, candle or create any other flame.
  • DO NOT turn electrical appliances or lights on or off, operate motorized equipment or vehicles, or use any device that could cause a spark.
  • DO NOT attempt to control the leak or repair a damaged pipe or meter. Natural gas leaking from a plastic pipe can create static electricity that can ignite the natural gas.

Locate Mayor Pipelines Near You!
Pipelines may be located anywhere, including under streets and sidewalks, and on private property.

Lower pressure distribution mains and smaller service lines connected to the gas meters at homes and businesses are not shown.

As the Chief of the Beaumont Police Department, I am honored to present our Annual Report for 2020. Despite 2020 presenting unfathomable challenges, the men and women of the Beaumont Police Department have continued to provide our community with the most effective and highest quality law enforcement service possible. The collaborative efforts of our caring community stakeholders, dedicated staff, and volunteers paired with a responsive City Council have resulted in the city’s ability to retain our identity during these uncertain times.

At the dawn of 2020, while the pandemic was well on its way to affecting nearly every aspect of our lives, COVID-19 consciousness was still in its infancy. As our awareness of the repercussions that the pandemic’s toll would take on our community grew, so too did our cognizance that our Commitment to the Community could become difficult to sustain without some means of evolving. With input from staff and community members alike, the Beaumont Police Department members and volunteers have worked diligently to find innovative means of maintaining our level of service while upholding the commitment to our community.

Midway through 2020, the department was once again preparing for the unknown when racial tensions erupted into civil unrest and protests across the nation. For our community, it was mostly a time of deliberate contemplation that resulted in peaceful marches and a piqued interest in ensuring that the Beaumont Police Department’s policies and procedures reflected the values of our community. During this time, our department held purposeful discussions between its members and our community members, delving into topics including race, bias, and policing.

Throughout the discussions, it was as important to listen to the concerns, as it was to have discussions highlighting our ongoing use of Technology and Social Media to build trust and understanding via increased transparency. Also important, was informing our community members that the Beaumont Police Department members share a culture of common respect and inclusivity derived from a diversity that accurately represents our community.

While the extraordinary circumstances of 2020 likely impacted statistics, the extent of the long-term impacts remains to be seen. Despite the uncertainty that will remain, the Beaumont Police Department is committed to preserving and protecting the safety of our community.

Vaccination Clinic at the CRC Closed as
Riverside County Transitions to Mobile Clinics
The Riverside County vaccination clinic at the Albert A. Chatigny Sr. Community and Recreation Center (RC) closed on Saturday, May 22, as the county transitions from the larger clinic sites to smaller, community-based locations operated by mobile teams.

Roughly 15,650 vaccines were administered at Chatigny since the clinic was opened on March 19. More than 1.9 million vaccine doses have been administered in Riverside County between the county-operated clinics and those run by the community partners.

Dr. Leung with Riverside County said the moves are part of a shift in the vaccination program for the county, which previously operated several fixed sites throughout the county. The clinic at the Moreno Valley Mall, which can vaccinate several thousand people a day, will remain the only county-operated fixed-site after May 28.

“Our mobile teams provide the flexibility that enables us to focus on individual communities or neighborhoods, then move quickly to other areas where there is a need,” said Leung.
