Here's a preview of some of the pedestrian improvements, part of the Safe Routes to Schools program, that will be presented by the City at the Neighborhood Meeting on the 27th. These improvements were suggested by parents who walked their children's school routes with city staff.
A meeting to share information about the situation and problems at Little Squalicum Park is set for Monday, May 12 from 7-9 PM. Organized by four neighborhoods on the north side of Bellingham, it will explore problems reported by residents and provide details on the patchwork of land ownership in the area.
A group of Birchwood and Columbia residents that formed to work on safety issues in Little Squalicum Park will discuss the actions they have taken so far, and the responses, including the Port’s decisions to increase patrols and add signs regulating use of the area. The audience will view a large map showing the jurisdictional mix, and hear how that has perpetuated problems. The city planning department’s report on possible annexation of the area is expected to be finished and also available for discussion. An additional issue is the past contamination of the creek and plans for cleaning it up.
The session will be held at Bellingham Technical College (BTC), Haskell Center, room 108 A and B. The vice president for administrative services at BTC, Debra Jones, will also attend, Parking is available in the visitor lot off Nome Street and in the staff lot off Lindberg Avenue. Haskell Center is located along Lindberg Avenue, between Buildings H and F.
