The Belmont Shore Residents Association was established in 1927 as the Belmont Shore Improvement Association. The BSRA is a non-profit, volunteer organization, dedicated to maintaining and improving the Belmont Shore residential community through communication and unified action. The BSRA works diligently to foster a sense of neighborhood collaboration and goodwill and is the only Belmont Shore association dedicated strictly to promoting the residents' interests. Throughout the years, many of our residents and city officials have freely given their time and effort to make Belmont Shore a place of value and pride. Please keep in mind, we are always looking for residents' input and feedback, new members, and offers to volunteer.
