Who We Are

The Belmont District Management Association (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. BIDs 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.”

Mission Statement

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. Our focus areas are sanitation, security, marketing and promotion, cultural programming, and streetscape improvements.
