The Downtown Neighborhood Association hosts its first meeting from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the Leopold Retirement Residence at 1224 Cornwall Ave.
The association, which is a function of the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, aims to connect neighbors, foster community involvement and responsively address issues to maintain a healthy downtown neighborhood.
Attendees will receive information regarding downtown affairs and a chance to speak with other community members, according to an event announcement.
The Downtown Neighborhood Association will meet on the final Wednesday of each month, excluding December, due to the holidays.
Meetings are open to residents, business owners and nonmembers interested in downtown matters. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate.
This article was revised on Nov. 19, 2012. The day of the association’s regular monthly meetings has been corrected.
Additionally, an earlier version of this story indicated the neighborhood association was a separate entity from the Downtown Bellingham Partnership, which is not the case. The association is merely one of the Partnership’s functions as an advocacy and community organization.
