Welcome to the City of Bel Aire

City of the Future with Respect for It's Past! We feel the tagline of our community says a great deal of who we are, and what we believe. Our past delivered us to our present...commitment, dedication, and perseverance will boldly drive us into the future.

Bel Aire is an inviting community with strong businesses and wonderful people. With a population just over 7,000 and its close proximity to Wichita, Bel Aire is afforded the amenities of big-city living, while being able to remain close to its small-town roots. In addition, nearby major transportation networks and available resources foster an environment of healthy business creation and expansion.

These important characteristics make Bel Aire a great place to live, work, and raise a family. We invite you to take a look at our website, familiarize yourself with our community, and see for yourself why we are proud to call Bel Aire home!
