Abstract

This project proposes a revitalization of the downtown area of Bellingham, WA, in an attempt to reestablish the city center's primacy as a commercial center. This EIA focuses on the southern section of the entire proposal. New development proposed for this project includes a four-story mixed use department store on the corner of Chestnut Street and Cornwall Avenue as well as a 260-space, four-story, above-ground parking structure on the corner of Cornwall Avenue and East Maple Street Mixed-use infill is also proposed for existing structures on Cornwall Avenue Addressing transportation issues, the project proposes that certain one-way streets be converted to two-way streets in the downtown area, a bike-share program be implemented, the trail system be further interconnected, and a trolleybus incorporated into the mass transit system.
