DOWNTOWN DISTRICTS

Downtown Belmont comprises three distinct districts: Historic Downtown District, Chronicle District, and East End District. The Downtown Belmont Development Association (DBDA) and Main Street focus on enhancing businesses and aesthetics within these districts. The DBDA, a volunteer-driven non-profit 501(c)(3), supports the Belmont Main Street Program’s comprehensive revitalization process. Our projects rely on city support, stakeholders, and volunteers who generously contribute their time and talents. Our mission is to advance the economic, aesthetic, and cultural environment of historic downtown Belmont. We aim for a vibrant downtown offering diverse experiences, including outdoor recreation, dining, and family-friendly entertainment.
