King Mountain Neighborhood

This neighborhood encompasses approximately 635 acres between the Meridian and the Irongate Neighborhoods.  Although Baker Creek, Silver Creek, and tributaries of Squalicum Creek; as well as, associated wetlands and wooded areas are found throughout the neighborhood; the most prominent feature is King Mountain. The residents living on the mountain have a panoramic view of the City, Bellingham Bay, and the San Juan Islands.

Four important transportation arterials bisect the King Mountain Neighborhood. They include East Bakerview Road, Telegraph Road, James Street Road, and Kellogg Road. Several residential areas, each with their own unique identity and history are located in close proximity to these roads. Residential development ranges from very low-density characterized by scattered single family detached homes on large lots to high-density mobile homes on very small lots. Commercial uses at the time of annexation include mini storage, agricultural nurseries, evergreen tree farm, and medical office.

There is strong evidence that the King Mountain Neighborhood will have significant growth in the future. Located between large industrial and commercial areas, the neighborhood has had a long history of urban zoning.
