The major streets that connect to other cities are generally NCDOT streets. These include:
Park Street/Keener Boulevard
The smaller, local streets off of them are generally
City of Belmont streets. Most neighborhood streets inside the city
limits are City of Belmont streets.
If you have a question about potholes or street conditions, please consult the Powell Bill Street Map (PDF)
so that you will know whom to call. This map shows all of the streets
in Belmont and are coded to NCDOT streets, City of Belmont streets, and
private streets. You can contact NCDOT through their website or contact the city street department.
When a new development is being built, the streets are built and
maintained by the private developer. Once enough houses have been built
on that new street and there is less construction traffic, the City of
Belmont will consider taking ownership and maintenance responsibilities
for the street.
street is turned over to the City, the developer must make all repairs
to it and must put the final coat of asphalt on it. All sidewalks and
street trees must also be installed and planted. This puts that cost on
to the developer and not the city taxpayers. Almost all of the recent
subdivisions have gone through this process, although some are not yet
ready to ask the city of Belmont to take over the streets.
The major exception is Reflection Pointe, where the streets are private and are owned by the homeowners' association.
