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.
