Bloedel Donovan Park Former Preschool Building Lease


The City of Bellingham Parks and Recreation Department is seeking an organization or individual to lease the building which formerly housed the preschool at Bloedel Donovan Park. Deadline for Letters of Interest is 5 p.m. on
March 30, 2018. 

The Parks & Recreation Department ran a preschool program in the building from 1980 through August 2015.  The building is now vacant and the Department is interested in finding a lessee for the building that will provide a benefit to the public and be compatible with public park use. 

After the letters are received, the City may begin negotiating with one (or more) respondents or decide to issue a more formal Request for Proposals. Proposals to use the building as a private residence or business that does not enhance a park visitor's experience or provide a recreational and educational benefit to the public will not be considered.


Letters of Interest due by 5 p.m. on March 30, 2018.
