State Street revitalization is topic of March 14 presentation

Students with Western Washington University’s Urban Transition Studio will present an analysis of potential redevelopment plans for the State Street Corridor in downtown Bellingham at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, in Room 218 of the Federal Building, at 104 W. Magnolia St. 

The presentation follows a community planning session last summer that focused on revitalizing the State Street Corridor, defined by city planners as the block of North State Street between Holly Street and Chestnut Street in downtown Bellingham.

Planning students will discuss a variety of alternative street designs, redevelopment ideas, recommendations for improving bicycle and pedestrian access, as well as the addition of new public spaces.

The event is presented by the Senior Planning Studio at WWU’s Huxley College of the Environment. The Urban Transition Studio Planning Series is a collaboration between WWU, the city of Bellingham, Sustainable Connections and Futurewise.

More information on developments with the State Street Corridor can be found on the city of Bellingham’s website.
