Fairhaven Park Entrance Gateway


This project involves the design and construction of a new entrance sign, which will also function as a gateway or landmark structure for this community park. The proposed entryway structure will be located at the main entrance to the park on Chuckanut Drive.


$75,000 in Park Impact Fees is budgeted for design, permitting, and construction.



Four design options have been developed for public review and comment on Engage Bellingham until March 31, 2022. The public may access a presentation of the options here: Fairhaven Park Entrance Sign | Engage Bellingham. Following public input, design options will be presented to the Bellingham Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, then the Bellingham Arts Commission for a final recommendation. The preferred design will then move forward for final design and permitting, with construction planned for Summer of 2023.
