Sustainable Connections Smart Growth program focuses on local planning solutions and supports systems that model proven successful outcomes.  The Complete Streets model is different for each community, and Bellingham will implement systems to support our unique urban planning model.  This forum is a chance to hear about additional ideas that have worked well in communities across North America.  Hope to see you there.

I have to ask what is so sustainable about Seattle lately? They are spending 18 billion dollars to dig a tunnel for cars to go under the city and to expand the 520 bridge by adding another car lane. They scrapped the monorail project, which was voted on and won after spending 13.5 million dollars talking about it. Do we want to model Bellingham after Seattle?
