The City of Belmont Economic Development program is a collaborative effort between the Finance and Community Development Departments. The Belmont City Council has established Economic Development and Downtown Revitalization as City-wide priorities, and the City is undertaking several significant planning efforts that will work to facilitate a thriving local economy.
The Belmont Vision Statement identifies “Thriving Economy” as a long range goal for the City of Belmont and provides the following community values:
- A charming, vibrant town center is the heart of our civic and economic life.
- Our economy prospers with a mix of attractive, successful businesses that fit with our community character.
- We look first in our own shops and restaurants for what we need.
- Education, arts and the economy flourish in concert.
Belmont's Economic Development program focuses on “Three R’s”– or three program components:
||Helping our existing local businesses compete and thrive.
||Utilizing existing & new tools to implement programs and practices that boost Belmont's economy.
||Looking to the future to attract new developers, businesses, and economic opportunities.
