Check out this video from the city, showing the progress that is being made on the iconic Granary building. This is the first major project on the long awaited redevelopment of the Bellingham's waterfront property obtained when GP left town about 10 years ago.The building was built up in 1928 during the boom of local chicken and egg production. Small chicken farmers banded together to form the Whatcom County Egg Producers Association and the Washington Cooperative Egg and Poultry Association in 1917. Small farmers working together allowed them to buy feed in bulk and ship their eggs and chicken to market outside of Whatcom County.According to an article by the Whatcom County Historical Society, Whatcom County had the second-highest chicken population in the country in 1920.After the chi...

At a joint meeting of City Council and the Port of Bellingham commission the announcement was made of a slimmed-down plan for a redeveloped central waterfront. Of course the plan won't be  finalized until fall, but some key changes from earlier proposals seem to be: • Postponement of the port's beloved plan to have a marina inside the old Georgia-Pacific Corp. waste water treatment lagoon. • The demolition of the Granary Building, which historic preservation advocates hoped to restore, it's just to costly. • Elimination of a proposed "Log Pond Park" along the shoreline between the old G-P pier and the port's shipping terminal, so the area can be developed as a waterfront industrial job source. • Indefinite postponement of relocation of BNSF Railway Co. tracks that now cut through the si...

I don't do it very often, but sometimes when I think someone does a super good job, I will write a blog post about their success or their business. After all, when someone goes to great effort to be outstanding, others ought to be told about it. Last week I wrote a post about my friends John and Karin Koons who have started a new donut shop.  I first met Karin, years back, when she was a real estate agent. John has been involved in making donuts since the 1960's so you will not find anyone who knows more about it than he does. His pastries, and he makes way more than simply donuts, are superb. That initial post that I wrote, right after they opened for business last week, is here. I told John and Karin that I would, also, put together a little video about their shop and, in the video, I...
