BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Bellingham City Council will discuss the latest proposed changes to the city’s waterfront redevelopment plans today.

The city and Port of Bellingham held several public meetings and site tours over the summer on the waterfront plans.

City Council President Seth Fleetwood says council members will study the latest revisions and consider making any final changes.

The latest plan proposes that the city and Port exchange several properties on the waterfront.

The city is preparing to spend roughly $100 million to redevelop the land for industrial, commercial and retail use.
