Thanks to everyone's efforts the city has modified their 100 Acre Woods plan to allow bikes! That's because of feedback via their surveys. However, there are still two important public meetings coming up where you can share your opinion.
The 100 Acre Wood Master Plan will be voted on by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) at their meeting on August 10, 7:30am (meeting link for public comment). This is important because their vote informs city council members and the mayor.
The City Council will vote on it August 29th at 7PM (details and meeting link here).
Bill Hasenjaeger crafted a couple of letter templates to send as emails: 1 for those living in and paying taxes for the CCFPD parks district, and 1 for general Bellingham citizens.
