The Belmont District Management Association INC. (BDMA) is a designated New York City Business Improvement District (BID). A BID is defined as:
“… a formal organization made up of property owners and commercial tenants who are dedicated to promoting business development and improving an area’s quality of life. BID’s deliver supplemental services such as sanitation and maintenance, public safety and visitor services, marketing and promotional programs, capital improvements, and beautification for the area – all funded by a special assessment paid by property owners within the district.”
The mission of the Belmont Business Improvement District is to promote and expand the economic well being of the business community, and the community at large, by promotion of the “Little Italy in the Bronx” brand, our strong ethnic heritage and leadership in the culinary marketplace, and by leveraging the mercantile, social, political and cultural assets within and around our community.

The Belmont BID employs private sanitation workers to make sure the districts streets and sidewalks are clean. Duties include street sweeping and bagging, snow and ice removal, weed trimming, and leaf blowing.
The Belmont BID employs a strategic communications and public relations agency to support our advertising and promotional efforts. We encourage business owners to share noteworthy stories and new business practices for potential coverage.
