From Kristin Zachary with the Charlotte Business Journal:

“Downtown Belmont was recognized this week as having a ‘Great Main Street’ by the 2015 Great Places in North Carolina awards program.

The program, sponsored by the N.C. chapter of the American Planning Association, says of Belmont’s Main Street: ‘Main Street Belmont is a special place, retaining its classic small town look and feel while buzzing with economic vitality. Its rich cultural assets, family-friendly entertainment, and active local living only add to the energy of the area.'”
