The public outreach meeting on Greenways Levy III implementation that was originally scheduled for November 28 and then rescheduled to January 10 due to inclement weather, has once again been rescheduled to January 31, 2007 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Squalicum Boathouse in Zuanich Point Park. All Bellingham citizens are invited to learn about the acquisition process for greenways, parks and trails and to provide input on where they would like to see new parks, trails and open space in Bellingham.
Where would you like to see new parks, trails, and open space in Bellingham? To express your views on the future of our parks and to hear what others have to say, come to a CITY-WIDE PUBLIC MEETING on the new Greenways III Levy implementation. The meeting is scheduled for WEDNSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2007 from 7 to 9 p.m., Squalicum Boathouse, Zuanich Point Park.
Sponsored by the Bellingham Parks and Recreation Department and the Greenways Advisory Committee, the meeting will present information about the acquisition process for greenways, parks and trails, and solicit input from citizens on neighborhood priorities and opportunities for greenways.
This is the first of several city-wide outreach meetings to familiarize the public with the process for land acquisition using Greenway Levy funds (as well as money from park impact fees and other sources) and the roles of the key Levy partners: Parks and Recreation Department, Greenway Advisory Committee, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, City Council, and the public.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their opinions about what projects are most needed in their neighborhoods and city-wide, what land might be available and appropriate for such projects, and what other ideas and suggestions they have for maximizing the value of new Greenway Levy funds.
All Bellingham citizens are welcome. The Squalicum Boathouse is ADA accessible. Assistive hearing devices and sign interpretation are available upon request by contacting Leslie Bryson at (360) 676-6985 at least three working days in advance of the meeting.
