First meeting on Cornwall Beach Park - and boardwalk - is Oct. 16

Posted by JIM DONALDSON on October 10, 2013 

Bellingham parks officials will hold the first of three public meetings on their plans for Cornwall Beach Park - and a second boardwalk over Bellingham Bay - on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

The meeting will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in City Council chambers at Bellingham City Hall, 210 Lottie St.

Residents will get their first look at city plans for the area, currently an old city dump. Port of Bellingham and state officials are looking at alternative cleanup strategies for making the property suitable for a new life as a city park.

The plans include an over-water boardwalk, similar to Taylor Dock, that would connect Cornwall Beach Park to the north end of Boulevard Park.

Here's a link to the city's webpage on the project, which is funded with $100,000 in park impact fees.
