Building an inclusive local economy

YOU CAN’T HAVE A HEALTHY COMMUNITY WITHOUT A DIVERSE AND RESILIENT LOCAL ECONOMY

For our county to thrive means engaging in economic development projects that integrate environmental sustainability, equitable access to opportunities, and broad participation.

THE MILLWORKS

The Millworks is envisioned as an affordable place for people to live, work and enjoy our stunning waterfront. The Whatcom Community Foundation is working with local partners, including Mercy Housing and RMC Architects, to develop this community benefit project at Laurel Street and Cornwall Avenue, the gateway to the new Waterfront District. The project features a food campus, which connects local producers with buyers, while integrating public assets such as a center for employee ownership, childcare facilities and around 70 units of workforce housing and potentially healthcare services. Combined, these elements will play a crucial role in the waterfront redevelopment, supporting economic growth and fostering prosperity on multiple fronts. Give now.
