As Mayor of Belmond, I invite you to consider making Belmond your home

Belmond is a great place to raise a family! Our small town quality of life is safe and friendly. Our schools and health care are excellent. Our seven parks and the Franklin Grove Heritage Trail of 3.5+ miles encourage outdoor activities. Our location within an hour of Mason City and Ames gives easy access to additional cultural events and attractions, while our distance eliminates the hassles of metropolitan living. Housing is affordable and available in many price ranges.

Entrepreneurship is welcome and supported. The Belmond Area Chamber of Commerce and the Belmond Industrial Development Corporation (BIDCO) both have low-interest loan programs. In addition the City has commercial, industrial and residential property tax abatement programs. Our local telephone company provides state-of-the art telecommunications technology for those who can work from home while the local power company (one of our economic development partners) works to provide services needed. Area industries and businesses are hiring. We have room and resources for your business to relocate!

Let us share our love of living here. I would like to personally invite you to consider Belmond, Iowa your home.
