Craig Middleton
It is great to be here in Belvedere! Thanks to everyone who has been so friendly and welcoming to me in my first month as your new city manager. I am excited to explore and discover the places – extraordinary views, winding streets, lanes, lagoon, open water – that make Belvedere so wonderful. The sense of civic pride is palpable, and volunteerism is clearly alive and well here. What a fabulous community!

I hail most recently from the Presidio, and feel that I’ve now joined forces with another “small town” also with a unique vantage point on the Golden Gate. My wife and I love Marin and especially enjoy its trails and open spaces. Thank you for inviting me into your community. I look forward to working with each of you.

Belvedere Formalizes Friendship City with Portofino, Italy
Belvedere and Portofino
City of Belvedere FlagThis month, our Mayor, James Campbell, formalized our new Friendship City relationship with Portofino, Italy. Traveling to the seaside town along the Italian Riviera, Mayor Campbell signed friendship documents and witnessed the raising of Belvedere’s flag over the Municipal Palace. It seems fitting that these two small cities, each iconic and beautifully situated on the water, would build a relationship of friendship with each other.

From Police Chief Seyler:
10’ Roadway Clearance and Designated Parking on Belvedere Island

Cars parked over white parking lines
The Belvedere Police Department has received a significant increase in complaints regarding designated parking and vehicles parked leaving less than 10 feet of roadway clearance. Emergency vehicles must have a minimum of 10 feet to navigate the narrow roadways in the City, especially on some of the more narrow streets such as Bella Vista, Bay View and Madrona Avenues.

The City understands that some of the marked parking spots are not large enough to accommodate a full size sedan or a construction vehicle. If your vehicle does not fit within the marked space, please find a different space to park your vehicle. A violation of Section 10.36.040 of the Belvedere Municipal Code (leaving less than 10’ of roadway) is $150. Parking outside of a designated spot (10.36.060 BMC) is $75.

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact the Belvedere Police Department at (415) 435-3266.
