And The Process Has Begun…
Yesterday, after a number of years in the making, we delivered the updated Edgemoor Neighborhood Plan to the Planning Department at the City of Bellingham, with our application for docketing. What a wonderful feeling!
Of course, we are just entering into a process we hope will culminate in the adoption of that plan (or something close to it) about 18 months from now. The next step is to see if we actually get into the planning system. In April our application will be reviewed by the Planning Department. In May and June hearings will be held, first by the Planning Commission (who will give their blessing or not) and then by City Council (who will make the decision), to determine whether the Planning Department will be authorized to work on our plan. We should know if it has been accepted by the first of July.
When it is accepted (notice the positive thought), the next phase of the process will begin. Many thanks to all who have given input so far…notices of hearing dates will be posted here, so you will want to keep checking in.
