Planning Academy

Planning Academy II: Green Bellingham - Achieving Infill, Enhancing Character

Planning Academy II was held April 30, May 7, May 21 and May 28, 2008, and involved community members in the exploration and formation of an Infill Housing Toolkit of clearly defined alternative housing types that may be integrated into appropriate areas of existing and new neighborhoods.  Bellingham can improve opportunities for home ownership and reduce sprawl by increasing the diversity of housing types that are available. 

Planning Academy I for Neighborhoods

The first Planning Academy happened in Fall of 2006 and was designed to familiarize neighborhood representatives with Bellingham's planning and regulatory code structure. These sessions provided the foundation for neighborhoods to embark on priority neighborhood code amendment proposals for submittal to the city.
