BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Port commissioners have given the go-ahead to begin contract negotiations with an Irish developer for the first phase of Bellingham waterfront redevelopment.
An evaluation committee of port, city and county leaders chose Harcourt Developments as a finalist to develop 11 acres.
Port Director Rob Fix stressed at the commissioners meeting Tuesday that nothing is set in stone yet.
Commissioners voted unanimously for Fix to go forward with an exclusive negotiation agreement.
They have 120 days to work with Harcourt, after which commissioners will decide whether to approve the contract.
