Port Seeks Public Input on Parks and Recreation Plan

The Port recently launched a project to update its Recreation, Conservation and Open Space (RCO) Plan.  The RCO Plan is a 6-year vision and roadmap for Port recreational facilities which guides Port decisions on where to build new facilities, how to improve existing facilities, and where to make capital investments such as in marinas, visitor moorage, and boat launches.


As part of the 2017 RCO update process, the public is invited to participate in an on-line priority survey of recreation facility projects.  To take the survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TG8R3FZ  Understanding community priorities is essential to creating a well-developed plan that guides the future development of recreational facilities and enables the Port to efficiently administer resources.


Stay tuned for more information on public open houses in Bellingham and Blaine in late summer 2017.  With the help of the community, an approach can be developed that maintains and enhances the qualities that make Port recreational facilities special.  Comments and questions are welcome throughout the planning process. For more information, please contact Port Planning Analyst Greg McHenry by email at GregM@portofbellingham.com
