Belmont is a tranquil residential community located in San Mateo County and neighbors the cities of San Mateo, Foster City and San Carlos. Belmont real estate is known for its scenic views of the San Francisco Bay, stretches of open space and the city takes pride in the transparency its government provides to its residents. This transparency is best represented through the city’s “community vision,” a manuscript outlining the city’s long-term cultural and economic goals. Put together by city officials and community-based committees in 2003, this document still serves as the critical framework for evaluating policy decisions today. Belmont homes and neighborhoods give off a small town feel, while also providing some big city attractions. There is a year-round Certified Farmers Market and the Carlmont Village Shopping Center which blend local and national retail options along with great restaurants for residents and visitors to enjoy. Twin Pines Park and Water Dog Park are city-run parks in Belmont and are frequented on a year-round basis. Transportation is also a high priority as the city offers safe residential streets for pedestrians, bicyclers and drivers, and makes it a priority to provide easy access in, out, and through the city. This coupled with its close proximity to the Bay Area’s biggest cities, makes Belmont an ideal location for business professionals who don’t mind a simple commute.
