PUBLIC HEARING(S)

AB20204 1. Consideration of the City of Bellingham's 2014 Budget

Council President Fleetwood opened the public hearing.

Deborah Rainy thanked the council for restoring and approving human services funding and prioritizing the needs of the city's most vulnerable citizens.

Paul Schissler supports funding of human services and encouraged the city to find a way to further augment community development funding.

Louise Bjornson, Council on Aging, explained that funding for senior services has been reduced over the past several years and encouraged the city and county to help the seniors in the community. She thanked the Mayor and Council for increasing the money for Meals on Wheels, which will and allow more seniors to stay in their homes.

There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed


15-MINUTE PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD

Garrett O'Brien said the Waterfront plan is well vetted and is a good plan.

Laurel Felber hopes that when designing the waterfront, consideration is made for the things that people come to Bellingham for: environment and parks. She feels there cannot be enough waterfront parks considering the success of Boulevard Park and how crowded it is.

Betsy Pernotto reviewed the history of the Blue Green Waterfront Coalition and is pleased with the progress made over the last two weeks on the waterfront plan. She thanked staff for including a biannual economic survey in the waterfront documents and is pleased that the Port and City have the intent to strive toward creating living wage jobs. She made suggestions for an economic survey: have living wage targets; determine living wage based on the cost of housing locally; collect information on compensation, determine the number and types of jobs created, the spread of jobs over different wage categories and she asked that the results be made public and published on the web site.

Louann Chaplin asked for another public hearing on the waterfront documents. Environment is as important as economics and she is fearful of rushing to a final decision.

Charles Law discussed new approaches for coping with adverse impacts from erosion, wave damage due to sea level rise and eco system protection. These new approaches may have long payback times and technology that might be unfamiliar or complex but the city owes it to the community to set clear targets in regard to carbon reduction; and to engage people and work together to present a visual picture of what we can have ‘if we do it right’ and what we will have ‘if we do it wrong’.

Karen Weil likened our waterfront with Stanley Park; and said our waterfront is an area that will have the same impact on Bellingham, the county and the region. Right now the legacy is more development and she is terrified that the downtown is going to die again. She asked that the shoreline habitat be protected and that the city develop a community benefits agreement.

Larry Hildes thanked the city for at least looking at prioritizing living wage jobs on the waterfront. He feels we have an opportunity to do something great and what he is seeing is not even mediocre. We can do more, he said, and there is no rush - we can do better.

Alex McLain concurred with Mr. Hildes and said he wants the development on the waterfront to be a project this community can be proud of. A development that reflects the creativity, imagination and skills of the people in this town and that reflects some of things for which Bellingham has earned national recognition. He has concerns about the bonuses that provide incentives in the development regulations and cited:
    Green building bonus and LEED certification; LEED Certification is something that’s verified by a third party; it’s a rigorous program; has high standards and will be really important, for the long term, to know that these bonuses are actually going to have the qualities that we want from our green building.
    Public open space bonus: a great incentive for builders to provide plazas but there is no language that protects against these plazas being inside.
    Lake Whatcom Land Acquisition bonus: if it is too easy for developers to pay into this then there’s not much incentive for them to build a green building. If they can walk up with a blueprint and a lot of cash then all the challenges of building a green building are instantly washed away. And, while you’re most certainly benefiting the lake, you are not benefitting the bay and our future waterfront.

Clarissa Mansfield asked for a habitat assessment, clean-up plans, another public hearing and living wage jobs.

Joy Gilfillen feels the waterfront has the potential to bring economic stimulus into the community and asked for an economic plan, living wage jobs and to consider the possibilities that there could be better ideas forthcoming.

George Dyson expressed his appreciation that the proposed budget will reopen the library on Sundays. He then addressed waterfront issues and specifically ‘who will pay for it’. He questioned the decision to transfer the clean-up liability of the site to the public sector and to de-authorize the federal-navigable waterway. He believes that the chance to have real leverage in negotiations for full clean-up of the site was relinquished.

Dominique Zervas thanked the staff for their work on the waterfront. This is an amazing starting place and she hopes people will continue with public comment.

Mark Buerer hopes there is flexibility and inspiration in the waterfront documents. We need to develop the layout of the system primarily for pedestrians and bikes. He has seen some inspiring proposals from master developers and looks forward to breaking ground.

Kate Blystone, Director, ReSources for Sustainable Communities, is concerned that a habitat assessment is not included. She has proposed language in her handout and hopes staff will consider adopting this language. She would like another public hearing.

James Loucky affirmed comments of previous speakers. He feels the far-future is the perspective we need and keeping a focus on the youth - what will it take for youth to be able to stay here so that we have an egalitarian community.

Wendy Steffensen, Northsound Baykeeper for ReSources, said there are issues remaining, in particular, with the habitat assessment plan. She is hoping those issues will be cleared up before the city signs off on these documents. She has not been able to get a final strikethrough version of the plans and documents and feels the staff hasn’t had adequate time to help the public understand what changes have been made. She asked that the city consider another public hearing; adopting additional language from the Blue Green Waterfront Coalition and putting the habitat assessment into the waterfront documents.

Tip Johnson said that the public he interacts with isn't feeling that the waterfront plan reflects a lot of public input. He referred to fraud charges against the Port and asked that the city not sign the Interlocal Agreement.

Ali Tayshi supports the waterfront plan; it includes checks and balances, and flexibility.

Abe Jacobson thanked the Mayor and Council for their hard work. He took issue with the port and feels, although it is a public body, it is not accountable to the public. He feels this is unsatisfactory and moving forward he would like the council to consider what this asymmetric relationship means.

Matt Petryni, ReSources for Sustainable Communities, feels there has not been enough time taken to listen to the public. He asked that the city take the time to get this right. He appreciated all the hard work and the commitment to wages and habitat assessment.

Jeff Hedges feels this is a well-balanced urban plan and should be approved.

Lori Province asked Council to consider Betsy Pernotto’s statement as far as living wage jobs and thanked the Council for their work and efforts made over the last couple of weeks on the waterfront document. She also thanked the council for decisions made recently with regard to the health care mergers in the community.

Bob Burr would like to know what the Port has told the city about the alleged fraud and is very concerned. He asked the city to respond to the Northwest Citizen accusations.

Terry Montonge suggested that a boatel would be a good way of relieving marinas, have a very small footprint, would not block views and they can accommodate from 200 to 2,000 boats. He also suggested that if Gateway Pacific does have hopper cars dump their loads; those same cars could be used to take away waste from the Cornwall Beach site and would be a relatively inexpensive way to get rid of the waste over a period of several years.

Dan McShane said that the city inherited a difficult, problematic deal but if you do not do this it would remain industrial, which is not appealing. He feels it is okay to vote yes, just to get it done; but he would support anyone who would be willing to say, this isn’t good enough. He added that using state clean-up dollars to choose an alternative clean-up plan for the waterfront is not a moral thing to do.

Bill Gorman supports the waterfront plan.
