Bellingham hosts free talk Tuesday about making urban villages

People can learn how to revamp the areas around their properties and businesses at a free urban village presentation Tuesday, March 10.

Speaker Michele Reeves, of Civilis Consultants, will present from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Walton Theatre in the Mount Baker Theatre, 104 N. Commercial St.

No reservation or ticket is needed for the free event, but the space is limited to about 200 people.

Reeves will talk about what makes up the “ecosystem” of an urban village, and some short-term steps that those in the private sector can take to improve commercial districts.
