The Bellingham City Council is hosting a series of town hall meetings to provide an opportunity for engagement between the community and the full City Council about timely issues facing our city. "Community Voices" town hall meetings will be held quarterly during 2022.

The City Council invites members of the public to leave written comments below on the topics discussed at each meeting, in addition to feedback provided during the meeting.

These special meetings are more focused than general public comment periods and more interactive than public hearings, including providing time for City Council members to respond. Meetings will include a brief presentation followed by opportunities for participants to share feedback. Meetings will be streamed live via the City’s website at meetings.cob.org, on the City’s YouTube channel, and on BTV Bellingham. Members of the public must be in attendance at the meeting to participate. Advance registration not required.
