Hello, Neighbors!

ENA (Edgemoor Neighborhood Association) has some great news!

The Edgemoor Neighborhood Board applied for and received a Small & Simple Grant from the City of Bellingham to improve neighborhood communication and develop a stronger sense of community. A portion of the grant was used to mail a newsletter to all Edgemoor homes to introduce the projects we have designed to improve our neighborhood and enhance our feeling of place. We welcome your participation as the more you engage, the more the association can truly represent our community.

Neighborhood Signs

Perhaps you’ve noticed the new Fairhaven Neighborhood signs recently installed? We loved the idea, and a portion of the Small and Simple Grant will go towards the design and production of a unique sign representing Edgemoor Neighborhood. These signs will be placed at the entrances to our neighborhood and will help define our unique setting. We will also use the new design for our meeting signs to remind everyone of upcoming meetings.

  • What would you like to see on our sign?
  • What images do you think reflect our neighborhood?

The Board would love to have your ideas. If you have graphic design skills, would you be willing to help with this project? All ideas are welcome. Because the signs will be installed along the streets, the size of the sign must meet the City’s 24” x 36” (portrait format) requirements. Please send your ideas and designs to enaboard@edgemoorneighborhood.com .

Pool Party at Bayside Swimming Club

  • Saturday, August 5th – 9:00 to 11:00 pm.
  • Drinks and light snacks will be provided

We have planned this social event to meet one another and make a splash! Please add our Pool Party to your calendar and join in the summer fun. Bayside Swimming Club limits the number of participants, so please RSVP at your earliest convenience to enaboard@edgemoorneighborhood.com .

You will receive an email confirmation as your “invitation” to the party. Guests will be asked to sign in when arriving.

Come join us to meet old friends and make new ones. Edgemoor has many new neighbors, and this will be a fun event to welcome them. Sign up now – don’t wait as space is limited and you don’t want to miss out.

New Viewcrest Road Subdivision (aka Woods at Viewcrest)

More than a year ago, developers submitted applications for a 38-lot subdivision on the steep, forested slopes overlooking North Chuckanut Bay. In response, Protect Mud Bay Cliffs (PMBC) was formed to minimize the adverse impacts on the environment and local residents.

After multiple application extensions, the process began moving forward again on June 20th when the developers responded to the City’s Request for Information. Because of a new state law that allows quadplexes on all single-family lots, the potential for development is 152 multi-family units. Once the City issues its Notice of Application, the public will have 30 days to submit comments. Please take the time now to become engaged by learning about the project.

Visit www.mudbaycliffs.org for more information and to sign up for email updates. PMBC can be reached at info@MudBayCliffs.org .
