Belleair Shore is a community of private homes on the eastern shore of the Gulf of Mexico. The Town lies four miles directly south of the City of Clearwater Beach and one mile west of the City of Belleair Bluffs. Numerous entertainment, dining and medical facilities are nearby. Residents of Belleair Shore enjoy an unobstructed view of the western sky from their private beach. (Private property line extends westward to the high water mark in the sand.)
The Town Government consists of a Mayor and four Commissioners who serve two year terms and are elected by the town’s residents. The Mayor and Commissioners recognize their responsibility to the founders of the town and jealously guard the single family zoning regulations specified in the charter and ordinances. Commercial and multi-family high rise buildings are prohibited and set-back and height limitations are designed to protect the continuity of the area.
The Town’s Governors are committed to maintaining an environment of stability and consistency to enhance the natural beauty and ambiance of the town for the continued enjoyment of its residents.
