Here's a news release from the City of Bellingham about an open house to introduce a downtown plan:
Over the past two years, the community has had the opportunity to provide input into the new Downtown Plan in many fun and exciting ways. Join the planning team at an open house to see the culmination of these efforts and provide additional feedback.
The Downtown Plan Open House is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the Mt. Baker Theatre Encore Room, 104 North Commercial Street. After a presentation on key recommendations at 6 p.m., browse the room and talk with the planning team from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The downtown planning process – also known as “myDowntown” – is a community planning project designed to help community members learn about everything downtown Bellingham has to offer, identify and remove barriers to redevelopment, and determine what is and isn’t working well downtown. Most importantly, the process will establish actions the community and its partners can take over the next 10 years to continue to make downtown the heart of the community.
Anyone interested in making Downtown Bellingham a great place should attend Dec. 11. Opportunities to comment will continue throughout the legislative process in 2014.
