Belgrade is a very small town located in the state of Maine. With a population of 3,154 people and just one neighborhood, Belgrade is the 109th largest community in Maine.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Belgrade is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Belgrade is a town of professionals, sales and office workers and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Belgrade who work in healthcare (14.09%), office and administrative support (12.42%) and management occupations (10.29%).
Also of interest is that Belgrade has more people living here who work in computers and math than 95% of the places in the US.
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Belgrade is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
Because of many things, Belgrade is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Belgrade a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Belgrade has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Belgrade’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.
Belgrade is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
