City staff will talk about plans for Whatcom Waterway Park and two new streets to be built on the waterfront at an open house Thursday evening, June 30.

Staff from the city’s parks and public works departments, and consultants, will show graphics and provide information on the first phase of the waterfront park and Granary Avenue and Laurel Street construction projects during the event, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Maritime Heritage Park building, 1600 C St.

People can ask questions and learn more about the waterfront site during the open house.

The projects are partly funded with grants from the Washington State Department of Commerce and the Federal Highways Administration, and with local dollars.

For more information on the park, go to cob.org and search “Whatcom Waterway Park.”
