Pedestrian and bicycle master plans. Deadline: Spring 2023
The pedestrian and bicycle master plans are each city-wide plans that identify future projects to create a more walkable and ridable community.
Public engagement is an integral part of both plan updates and will be used to inform projects, programs and priorities for further building out Bellingham’s pedestrian and bicycle networks for people of all ages and abilities to safely and conveniently walk, bike and roll. Survey online.
YOUR PROPERTY TAXES
How much do I pay, and where does the money go? Whatcom, Skagit and San Juan counties report how much each jurisdiction collects in property taxes, and how much each individual pays, depending on where they live and the value of their property.
