Important Belmar Garden Updates
The Board Members of Belmar Gardens have received letters regarding parking. The letters ask 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.
The first day of Spring began March 20, 2021. Time to plant your flowers. Remember, we have a lot of deer in Belmar so you may want to plant something to keep them from eating your flowers. Please report any problems with landscaping to our Management Company, your board member representative or on our website. We can't correct problems if they are not being reported!
Also remember the rules and regulations on Barbecue Grilles – Grilling outside is permitted in the front of the houses; however, all grilles must be moved to the back of the unit within 24 hours (to allow cooling).
Remember West Nile Virus is still around! Eliminate stagnant water in tires or other water-holding containers. Allegheny County Health Department officials urge the public to protect themselves from mosquitoes by getting rid of standing water in yards and neighborhoods, making sure that open windows and doors have screens, using insect repellent on exposed skin and minimizing time spent outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
Complaints regarding properties with stagnant water in tires or other water-holding containers can be reported to the Health Department by calling 412-350-4046 and reported to our Management Company.
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.
The next primary election is on May 18, 2021.
In Pennsylvania, you can only vote for the candidates in the same political party you have named in your voter registration. For example, if you registered to vote as a member of the Republican Party then you can vote in the Republican primary, but not the Democratic primary.
All voters can vote on:

Annual Shareholder's Meeting
The next Annual Shareholders' Meeting date will be announced soon and how or where it will be held will be announced also.
Our 2020 shareholders meeting via Zoom was a success. More people joined in on the meeting and the meeting went smoothly.
Many of our residents are struggling through this difficult time. Please note the information below if it can help you in anyway.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who distributed boxes of food throughout the community.
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.
