With the City of Bellingham and the Bellingham Police Department, these monthly meetings bring together downtown business owners and residents to learn more about safety issues facing our district and offering tools to improve safety.

The DBP also organizes downtown's official neighborhood association meetings. These quarterly gatherings act as a way for the neighborhood to get to know one another, become informed, give feedback to the DBP, City of Bellingham, and other invested organizations in order to improve our district. We also use them as an opportunity to celebrate the businesses and people who are helping to make downtown the great place that it is. Sign up for our newsletter to receive updates
