Arts & Culture
I believe Bellingham is experiencing a renaissance of arts and culture and our Downtown is the heartbeat. Artwork and Placemaking is enriching, it spurs economic development and community engagement. I want artists, innovators, and creators to believe that our city will support the fullest expression their creativity. To do this we need to start saying YES to great ideas and helping people navigate our complex codes and regulations. People should expect great customer service from our city departments and I want to help make sure these expectations are met.
