Belmont District Management Association INC. (BDMA) is a designated New York City Business Improvement District. A Business Improvement District (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.
