About Us

BPDC is committed to maintaining and enhancing the full diversity of its residential, commercial, industrial communities, and providing the planning necessary to ensure the vitality of the neighborhood into the future.  We were incorporated into a  nonprofit since 1991.

Bellaire-Puritas Development Corporation primarily serves the Bellaire-Puritas, Jefferson, & Hopkins areas of Cleveland – Ward 16, which is the heart of the historic West Park neighborhood, named after an early settler, named John West, who lived on what is now W. 138th St.

We preserve, enhance, and create ecologically important areas at the annual creek clean-up and planting days.

Our neighbors engage in ecological preservation though our programs.

In addition to residential, retail, ecological, and institutional areas of Ward 16, our service area also includes Enterprise Parkway, West Industrial Parkway, Puritas Industrial Park, Cleveland Business Park, and Emerald Corporate Park.

As the neighborhood lead agency for the MyCom youth development initiative for West Park, we also serve all the K-12 youth who live, work, or study no matter what school youth attend.  The entire West Park area which stretches from Halloran Park on W. 117th St. on the east side to the Fairview Hospital on the West side and encompasses all of Cleveland’s Ward 19 and parts of Cleveland’s Ward 11.
