Comprehensive Land Use Plan

The Belmont Comprehensive Land Use Plan is a guide for how the city should grow in the future.

About the Plan
  • The City of Belmont adopted its first comprehensive plan in August 2007.
  • The comprehensive plan is not an ordinance or law, but development plans and rezoning decisions must be made with consideration of the plan.
  • The plan calls for protecting the existing neighborhoods in Belmont and directing commercial growth in walkable Village Centers.
Comprehensive Land Use Map
  • The City of Belmont had adopted 3 versions of its Comprehensive Land Use Map, based on the uncertainty of the location of the proposed Garden Parkway in 2007.
  • In 2010, the North Carolina Turnpike Authority decided on an alignment of the proposed Garden Parkway, so the City will use the adopted maps for the northern alignment of the Garden Parkway.  Maps are located in Section 4 of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
