Next Wednesday the AS Office of Civic Engagement (OCE) will be hosting an informational meeting and Q & A with a few of Bellingham's city planners on local housing issues. Specifically, the planning department is discussing changes to zoning and residency laws, including the current definition of 'family' that restricts the number of unrelated people living together in a house or unit to three.
The event will be on Wednesday, Jan 13 from 3-4 p.m. on Zoom.
The full info and Zoom link can be found on the WIN event page: https://win.wwu.edu/event/6652985
The OCE would love to have students attend to learn about future changes to housing laws, ask questions, offer suggestions, and share their experiences with the current 'family' restrictions.
If you cannot attend live but have experiences you'd like to share or specific questions to ask, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, a recap of the meeting will be shared to the OCE Instagram and Facebook pages.
