Bellingham Waterfront Vision, Framework Plan & Action Plan

We led a consultant team of urban designers, architects, developers and finance experts to create a comprehensive vision, framework plan and action plan for the redevelopment of Bellingham’s waterfront. Principal Marcia Wagoner facilitated the community stakeholder process with representatives from the Waterfront Futures Group, the Port of Bellingham, the City of Bellingham and members of the public. Working within tight timelines, we developed and facilitated weekly work sessions, organized multiple open houses, tours and other events and secured extensive media coverage and public feedback. The final vision and plans received strong support from the public, yielding significant and ongoing public investment in the downtown waterfront district.
