Bellingham is being featured once again as a model community in the upcoming PBS documentary “Fixing the Future.”  The documentary’s prime time showing is Friday, November 26 at 7 p.m. on KCTS, Channel 9, but if you can’t wait, there will also be a sneak-peek showing at 5pm this Thursday, November 18th at the Mount Baker Theatre in downtown Bellingham.

“Fixing the Future” will focus on all the ways that Bellingham is working to be sustainable, highlighting the sustainable fishers at Lummi Island Wild, creative innkeepers at Willows Inn, local oven manufacturers at Woodstone and hybrid vehicle gurus at Western Washington University.

The screening is hosted by Sustainable Connections.  There will be a reception from 5:00-5:45 p.m. in the Encore Room with refreshments from Boundary Bay, The Willows Inn and Old World Deli. Introductions and the documentary showing kick off at 5:45 p.m. in the Walton Theatre.

Be sure to get there early as seating will be limited. Admission is free.

  2. Hi, just exploring B’ham as a potential place to settle. Any stats on Bellingham home prices over the past 10 years?

    • Hi TB, thanks for the comment!

      Home prices in Bellingham have risen considerably in the last ten years, like much of the country. In 2001, the average home in Bellingham was 150k, and this price peaked in 2008 at 290k. Now, after the real estate bubble burst, the average home price is 250k.

      We might expect prices to go down a little more this year, but I don’t think we’ll ever see 2001 prices again.

      Bellingham is a great place to settle, I highly encourage it! If you would like to chat more, feel free to email me at or call me at 360-420-9151.

      Have a great weekend!
