Workshop will cover crime prevention in downtown Bellingham

City planners and downtown stakeholders host their final public workshop that will focus on crime prevention through place-making and design.

The workshop will be from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 4. It will start in the upstairs conference room at 1411 Railroad Ave. in downtown Bellingham (Toni & Guy Hair Academy).

The event is part of the myDowntown planning process.

It will focus on crime prevention efforts on the Magnolia Street corridor between Railroad and Cornwall avenues. There will be a short presentation and discussion followed by small-group brainstorming sessions.

Attendees will be able to hear stories from business owners who have successfully limited loitering and vandalism in the area. The workshop will also cover tactics promoted by Bellingham police and the Project for Public Spaces designed to encourage positive activity and limit negative behavior.
