Next Meeting – Puget Neighborhood Meeting
Tuesday, November
19 26, 2019 @ 6:00pm, Carl Cozier

NOTE: Date Change! ***Meeting Now on Tues, Nov  26***

Sorry for the date change.  Due to a conflict with a Cozier school activity, we need to change the date of our meeting.  We will now meet on Nov 26.  Sorry for any inconvenience.  Our planned agenda remains.

The focus of our next Puget Neighborhood Association meeting is the proposed CityView development….  also known as the proposed development on the Hawley Tract or at the old University Ridge site.   The agenda for the meeting is an update on the proposal and discussion.

We hope to have folks from the Puget Neighborhood Preservation Work Group there to help with an update and to share in the discussion.  Representatives of the developers will be invited too.

As usual, we’ll have a social time to meet and greet Neighbors from 6:00-6:30PM, and the meeting will start at 6:30.

Plan to come join us!

The Proposal for Apartments at 4413 Consolidation (aka “CityView”)

This is the proposal for what is know as the Hawley Tract in the Puget Neighborhood.  You may remember the area for the University Ridge project proposed for the property between Nevada and Puget Streets, north of the undeveloped section of Consolidation Avenue.

There is a free social website called Nextdoor that many Bellingham neighborhoods are using to enhance communications between neighbors.  It’s a great way to share information about local concerns (e.g., car prowls), lost pets, etc.  Our neighborhood police officers use Next Door to post alerts, answer questions, and receive non-emergency messages.  Read more about Nextdoor here.
