ABOUT US

We're your friends and neighbors.  Made up almost entirely of volunteers, the DBDA board members chair four committees:  Organization, Design, Economic Vitality and Promotions.  It is through these committees and our even larger group of superstar committee and event volunteers that the magic happens. 

MISSION & VISION STATEMENT

The mission of the DBDA  is to further advance the economic, aesthetic, and cultural environment of historic downtown Belmont. 

Located 6 miles from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, downtown Belmont is weaving a history within three districts: The Chronicle District, Historic Downtown and the River District. ​

We are advancing the hub of a growing collection of independently owned businesses exemplifying an environment supportive of small business and entrepreneurial development.

These distinct districts connected by trolley, trail, sidewalks and city streets, offer a variety of experiences from outdoor recreational opportunities, to downtown living, dining and family-friendly entertainment.
