The City of Belmont has accomplished a great deal since the original adoption of the General Plan over 30 years ago. Today, the City of Belmont is known for its wooded hills, views of the San Francisco Bay, and stretches of open space. Successful planning efforts have resulted in the development and preservation of highly desirable neighborhoods. Combined with its distinctive community character and small-town ambiance, Belmont is a great place to live, work, and play.
The General Plan is the City’s primary guide for development, housing, transportation, environmental quality, public services, and parks and open spaces. On November 14, 2017, the City adopted the 2035 General Plan. The General Plan was a collaborative effort between the City, its residents, and stakeholders to create a vision and a blueprint for development through 2035. The Belmont community had the opportunity to get involved at all stages of the planning process, from the initial visioning and exploration of plan alternatives to the selection of the Preferred Plan and review of its accompanied Environmental Impact Report.
