Street Responsibility

Belmont has many streets that are either owned by the City of Belmont, the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), or by a private entity.

 

NCDOT Streets

The major streets that connect to other cities are generally NCDOT streets. These include:

  • Central Avenue
  • Main Street
  • Park Street/Keener Boulevard
  • Wilkinson Boulevard

City Streets

The smaller, local neighborhood streets inside the city limits are City of Belmont streets.

New Streets

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.

Developer Responsibilities

Before a street can be 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 surrounding landscaping trees must also be installed and planted. This places that cost on to the developer and not our taxpayers. Almost all of the recent subdivisions have gone through this process, while a few have not yet asked the City of Belmont to take over the streets.

Example
An example of a developer not asking the City of Belmont to take over the streets would be Reflection Pointe, where the streets are private and are owned by the homeowners' association.

Maintenance

If you need to report a problem with one of the streets within Belmont or need to ask a question about potholes or street conditions, please consult the Powell Bill Street Map, which can be found below, in order to determine who you should contact. This map shows all of the streets in Belmont and will indicate which of these are NCDOT streets, City of Belmont streets, and private streets.
