Whatcom County Public Works forwarded the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce information about the wooden stakes and locators placed by WCPW staff to mark where the stop signs will be installed on Birch Bay Drive & Birch Point Road. In short, Public Works is moving forward with the installations per Ordinance 2023-004.
Use the link below to access an info sheet that WCPW staff put together in response to the concerns raised by the community at past Whatcom County Council meetings.
WCPW recognizes that these stop signs are not a popular resolution for this intersection, and many in Birch Bay are frustrated by this decision. However, because the Ordinance has passed Council, WCPW is not in a position to postpone their installation.CLICK HERE TO READ THE INFO SHEET FROM WHATCOM COUNTY PUBLIC WORKS
