Annual Shareholders' Meeting - Dec. 7, 2019 from 10 am to 12 noon at the Homewood Carnegie Library, 7101 Hamilton Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15208.
Summer is nearing on June 21st! Hopefully you are beginning to plant your flowers and/or vegetables. Remember, we have a lot of deer, groundhogs, etc. in Belmar so you may want to plant something to keep them from eating your garden. Please report any problems with landscaping to our Management Company or to your board member or on our website. We can't correct problems if they are not being reported!
Thank you to the shareholders who planted flowers in the beginning and ending pots placed in Belmar!

Lock your car doors!! Thieves are going around the community trying unlocked car doors and vandalizing once they are in.
Asphalt work is completed for the back common driveways and the garages in the back. We are aware that some cement work will need to be done at the beginning of some of the common driveways. It will be taken care of in the near future.
