A Greater Community

John & Joy Belt shared a passion for the arts, and both fell in love with the little neighborhood known as the Paseo. John had a vision to transform the Paseo into a true arts district, and for the next 25 years, he led the charge to revitalize the area and make it a desirable neighborhood to live and work for so many people. The Belts created a legacy fund at the Community Foundation, ensuring their support for the Paseo District and other arts-related beautification projects would continue long after they were gone.
