Show Your Support for Cherry Point
The WBA has brought together a coalition of stakeholders to express their concerns about the County Council’s proposed update to the Whatcom County Comprehensive Plan. The County’s proposal would limit growth and opportunity at Cherry Point which threatens good family wage jobs and would also puts at risk the many other benefits that our community receives from Cherry Point companies.
The businesses at Cherry Point contribute a lot to our community such as tax revenues that fund our schools, first responders, libraries and other social services as well as the money and volunteer hours generously contributed to local non-profits.
Our coalition of stakeholders has submitted an alternative proposal to the Council for the Comprehensive Plan update – collaborative alternative #3 – that balances economic growth with sustainability and ensures opportunity and prosperity for the future.
We need you to act now. Please follow the link below and tell the County Planning Commission to say no to the County Council update proposal and support collaborative alternative #3 – the reasonable and balanced approach to our future.
Join the WBA for a post election economic forecast from Wells Fargo Securities Director and Senior Economist Tim Quinlan with opening remarks from Whatcom County native John Mingé, Chairman and President of BP America Inc. Tim returns to Bellingham for his yearly update that is both engaging and highly informative. Hear about how national and global trends may impact your business and our community.
