Community Invited to Comment on Port Park Plan

Community members are encouraged to take part in a public hearing about the Port’s Comprehensive Park, Recreation and Public Access Plan at 3 p.m. , Tuesday, March 1, during the regular Board of Commissioners meeting, 1801 Roeder Ave.

This six-year plan includes information about a wide range of potential projects on port property. The plan must be updated every six years so that the port remains eligible for state boating, recreation and conservation grants offered through the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO).

The plan includes information about:
• Waterfront parks with pedestrian and bicycle trails in Bellingham and Blaine
• Dredging, piling and float replacement in one of the oldest part of Squalicum Harbor Marina
• Piling, float and lighting replacement at Squalicum Boat launch
• Continued enhancements of remaining sections of the Squalicum Promenade
• Shoreline Restoration at Little Squalicum Beach
• Investigation into the potential for a partial Padden Creek Lagoon east bank restoration in Fairhaven

People who cannot attend the hearing, but would like to submit comments can do so via an online form on our website, by emailing comments to planning@portofbellingham.com or by mailing comments to: Planning & Development, P.O. Box 1677, Bellingham, WA 98227-1677. Written comments must be submitted by March 4, 2011.
