At next Sunday's Walk the Walk event, we'll have one breakout session where we gather by area/neighborhood, so please come if you can and invite anyone else you know around here who would be good.

Although you are not technically in the neighborhood, I would still say you fit. Boundries are just lines on maps. I was hoping to get some more members and then plan a meeting. I tried to send out an invite to the e-mail group for my neighborhood but i don't think it worked. I just searched the website and invited several others.

there are several urban growth areas (ugas) all around Bellingham, this map shows them in with a lavendar colored boundary.
I found this specific uga reffered to as the "Yew Street UGA" in a few documents on That name could work, "Transistion Yew Street UGA"

I would say you are close enough, at least until someone creates the Transistion UGA Neighborhood?? And I actually did not make it to the movie, although I wanted to see it.

Hey- I"m close. I guess you would call mine the UGA neighborhood!

Thanks for coming to the movie today!
