Housing & Real Estate
Rezoning & Development
Located nextdoor to Uptown Charlotte and bustling neighborhoods such as Plaza Midwood and NoDa, Belmont has become a popular neighborhood for reinvestment and development. Amenities such as skyline views, Little Sugar Creek Greenway/Cross Charlotte Trail, and the CATS Blue Line Extension have brought newcomers to Belmont
looking to put down roots.
In 2015, the Belmont Community Association formed the Land Use Committee comprised of residents and business owners from the neighborhood.
The mission of the Land Use Committee is to identify, research, and inform on land use issues that impact the Vision of the Belmont Community. The goal of the Land Use Committee is to encourage positive development and investment that is mindful of the history and integrity of the neighborhood.
Since 2015, the Land Use Committee has been active with initiatives in the neighborhood including:
- Community Update (2016) to the Belmont Area Revitalization Plan (2003)
- UNC Charlotte Belmont Character and Corridor Study (2017)
- Historic Landmark Designation of The Red Front Department Store (2017)
- Belmont Avenue Better Block (2017)
The Land Use Committee also works closely with rezoning petitions and the Belmont community to address
concerns and issues with pending development. For up-to-date information on rezoning petitions, please visit www.Rezoning.org or contact the Land Use Committee directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Charlotte Belmont neighborhood is located just outside Charlotte’s Center City and the I-277 loop. The boundaries are typically described as E. 10th Street, N. Davidson Street, Hawthorne Lane and Parkwood Avenue.
