Bellingham is proud to be a city that makes the most of its natural resources, inherent beauty, entrepreneurial spirit and civic-minded residents. In keeping with the community's goals to preserve its characteristic beauty while promoting economic sustainability, the Bellingham Public Development Authority (BPDA) was created by the City of Bellingham in 2008 to develop and promote the use of city-owned property to implement development plans and policies contributing to the City's financial, social and environmental vitality. The BPDA became operational in late 2009.
