COMMENT AND PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

Bellingham Urban Forestry Management Plan. Deadline: June 15, 2022

The City of Bellingham is seeking public input to guide how our community manages and enhances the trees and forests that makeup Bellingham’s urban forest. Survey online May 9.

Bellingham Consolidated Plan. Deadline: June 30, 2022

Every 5 years the city must create a plan to prioritize how it will spend funding to best address homelessness, affordable housing and the lack of childcare issues. Before making this plan, the City would like to hear from the community. Survey online. 

Whatcom County Food System Committee Survey. Deadline: July 1, 2022

Community members are invited to participate in an online survey to gather input on Whatcom County’s food system and proposed goals for a revised food plan. The food system is a network of people and activities connecting production, transformation (processing), distribution, consumption, and food waste management. It also addresses policies, influences, and imbalances. Survey online.

Jail planning. Deadline: Late 2022

The Whatcom County Justice Project's Stakeholder Advisory Committee is accepting comments at SAC@co.whatcom.wa.us on a new jail and associated behavioral health services, as long as the committee continues to meet.


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.
