Final (yes, really) Cherry Point moratorium extension hearing

Tuesday, December 3rd
6:30 PM doors + speaker sign-up (earlier if you can)
7:00 meeting begins. Wear red!
Whatcom County Council Chambers, 311 Grand St, Bellingham (map)
Details + RSVP

After three years of preparation, the County Planning Commission is working on the final set of proposed protections as they wrap up a months-long public process. To give the Planning Commission time to complete the Cherry Point code amendments, we must urge the County Council to extend the temporary moratorium. The moratorium will hopefully be extended - for the eighth time - six more months while code amendments are finalized and voted on in early 2020. For questions and more information, email CleanEnergy@RE-Sources.org.



Decarbonizing Bellingham: Climate Task Force presentation

Monday, December 9th
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Bellingham City Council chambers, 210 Lottie St (map)
Council meets at 6:30 PM, chance to speak

The City of Bellingham is moving to become a leader in city-scale climate action, with an ambition of meeting the community’s energy needs for heating and transportation with 100% renewable energy by 2035. Though the climate crisis is global, the solutions must happen at a local level. Decarbonization, electrification, and energy efficiency must be accomplished together. 

On December 9th, Bellingham's Climate Action Task Force will present it's first report full of possible ways to decarbonize locally — and you're invited to learn about them!

Currently, most of Bellingham’s energy use is from fossil fuels. Buildings consume over half their energy directly from fracked methane gas, and over half of our electricity from coal and gas-power plants. You can help insist the City change that. Learn more about the Climate Action Task Force

Public Comment Periods

Looking for information about public comment periods for cleanup plans or pollution permits in Washington state? 
Visit our Water Quality Permits page for more information.

In Washington, pollution permits are issued under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and regulated by the state Department of Ecology. When permits come up for review, citizens can participate in the public process and comment on the details of the permit, calling for stronger environmental regulations where necessary.
