What is the Belmont-Fallon Target Area?

For nearly 20 years, the city has concentrated its community development funding into a single neighborhood to make more of an impact. In 2019, the City selected the Belmont and Fallon neighborhoods to focus activity over the next five years.

By targeting neighborhood improvements in one area for up to five years, the intent is to jump start long-term neighborhood improvement that will continue even after we move on to the next neighborhood. The city typically invests about $1.7M in a target neighborhood each year through a variety of community development programs, mostly related to construction of new housing and improvement of existing housing. Other projects may involve street improvements or economic development.

Where is it?

Known as “Belmont-Fallon,” the focus area is located between I-581, Fallon Park, and runs from Tazewell Avenue south to Highland Avenue.
