The Flourishing of Human and Divine Community 

Civic By Design in partnership with the City of Belmont has conducted design workshops to create an alternate master plan for a 1000 acre tract along Lake Wilie in Belmont. The City of Belmont has been on the verge of approving plans for the development of a large tract of land that will have a dramatic effect on the city's long-term future. City of Belmont officials understand a rare opportunity to design a plan for such a significant 1000 acre tract comes once in the life of a city. The forum led by Belmont mayor and seminary professor Richard Boyce explores how form shapes character and community, both for better and for worse. Forum attendees participated in a special hands-on design workshop led by Tom Low exploring Civic By Design ideas for Belmont’s lakefront future.

The following are images from the workshop and final master plan documents created by Civic By Design.
