Important Belmar Garden Updates
The Board Members of Belmar Gardens have received a letter regarding parking. The letter asks that we address the parking issues in the front, not only the back. Please be aware that the street belongs to the City of Pittsburgh and we have No Control over who can park there. In regards to the handicap plaques in front of homes, they were requested from the City of Pittsburgh and placed there by the City of Pittsburgh.
Carrying charges will remain the same as of January 2021 but is subject to change if necessary.
Remember to turn your outside water faucets off and remember to turn it off inside your basement also. We have had many pipes burst because shareholders did not turn the water off from the outside and the inside. If you do not know where it is or you cannot reach it, please call Rubinoff Company to help you.
The first day of Winter is December 21, 2020. Please report any snow removal problems to the Rubinoff Company or on our website. Also, please do not block the areas of snow removal so the plows cannot clear the snow for everyone.
Stahl Plumbing will be visiting every house to check the furnaces and change the batteries in your smoke detector. If your smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector is determined to be bad, Belmar will replace it, not Stahl.
Because of Covid-19, when walking through Belmar Gardens, please remember to wear masks, practice 6 feet social distancing, wash your hands constantly. Please be safe and check on your neighbors if possible.
Zone 5 police can be contacted at 412-665-3605 for non-emergencies. 911 can be used for anything that you need the police for right now.
Please remember, according to Belmar Gardens Rules and Regulations, anyone over 18 who moves into your unit must pass a criminal check.
Lock your car doors!! Thieves are going around the community trying unlocked car doors and vandalizing once they are in.
Remember, the responsibility for Belmar lies on all of us, not just the Board members. Help do your part in keeping Belmar safe and liveable!
If you have information to share with the community, please see one of the Board Members assigned to your unit or any Board Member.
Thank you to all of our Doctors and Nurses in the community who have devoted themselves in this fight against Covid 19!
Thank you to all of our community Teachers for the efforts and struggles you have encountered to see that our children in the community are being taught.
What are you doing to improve the community?
Think of the value that diversity brings to a community, building strong leaders and helping each other work together to achieve great things!
Annual Shareholder's Meeting
The Annual Shareholders' Meeting held December 12, 2020 via Zoom was a success. More people joined in on the meeting and the meeting went smoothly. You will soon be notified when the next meeting will be and how it will be held.
Since there were no nominations, the current board members (Melinda Durham, Jay Trower, and Denise Wilson) that were up for election will be retained for this year.
Many of our residents are struggling through this difficult time. Please note the information below if it can help you in anyway.
The Lincoln Park Community Center Food Pantry will operate strictly as a drive-up pantry. No patrons will be allowed inside the building.
They have made these changes in hopes of reducing the risk of exposure as well as to aid with the reduced volunteer staffing.
All food pantry patrons will receive a standard selection of available food and paper good items. There will be a limit of 2 “families” per vehicle.
Although the drive up food pantry will still continue on Wednesdays, they have changed their hours to 4:30pm - 6pm.

Please be mindful that Ridgeview Avenue will be closed to Pantry traffic until 4:30 pm. Should you need any additional information, please check out their Facebook page at
