Barkley Urban Village and Planned Action Adoption
Barkley Village is a 259-acre area owned primarily by Talbot Real Estate LLC. Since the late 1980s, it has developed as a mixed-use area under Commercial and Industrial zoning designations. In conjunction with Talbot Real Estate LLC, the city of Bellingham is undertaking a public process to create an Urban Village Plan, including development regulations and environmental mitigation, to help guide the future development of this area.
