Housing concerns? Bring them to the forum!
The York Neighborhood is sponsoring a forum on housing concerns on Wednesday, Sept 14th at the Garden Methodist Church at 7pm. [1326 N. Garden St at the corner of N. Garden & Magnolia streets] This will be an interesting, informative and lively discussion.
The York flyer reads: “Please join with neighbors and citizens throughout Bellingham to discuss concerns about affordable housing, zoning, protection of single-family neighborhoods, quality of life issues, and housing options for today and into the future. In an atmosphere of a true “Town Hall” forum, we will listen to one another respectfully and further the dialogue to safeguard our communities, protect the heritage and character of our historic single family neighborhoods, and address the issues of affordability and livability here in Bellingham. Sponsored by: the York Neighborhood Association”
Note: Members of the city council plan to attend. In fact so many that the council office had to put out this notice of quorum: “...a Notice of Quorum for the Bellingham City Council members since four or more members may be attending. This type of notice is sent out widely on our distribution list and some people on those lists will want to attend. We do this when we anticipate a potential quorum at an event where discussions of City business will take place.”
