BELLINGHAM - A Downtown/Waterfront Committee made up of Bellingham City Council members will meet on Monday, Aug. 12, and four times in September to work on a proposal for redevelopment of the waterfront.
The meeting on Monday is from 10:30 a.m. to noon at City Hall, 210 Lottie St. The other four committee work sessions will be held on Mondays in September beginning Sept. 9.
The complete schedule, all the waterfront planning documents and instructions on how to submit written comments are at cob.org/waterfront.
The full council will take up deliberations on the waterfront plan in October. The council intends to make a final decision on the plan before the end of the year.
The council held a public hearing on the waterfront plan Aug. 5, when commenters said they wanted more park space, a thorough cleanup of contaminated sites and livable-wage jobs.
