Description
Abstract
                            Derived projects(D_Projects) is a polygon featureclass which contains the construction, land use and environmental projects within the City of Bellingham and the lower portion of Whatcom County. Construction project polygons date from the late 1800’s to the current year and land use and environmental projects go back to the 1990’s. The attribute information source is the city project and permitting system TRAKiT joined to parcel, street, project or specially drawn polygons. Attributes include basic project information such as dates, description, classification, type along with links to plans in the document management system. There are over 30 attributes describing each project so review full attribute metadata for details. 
                          
Purpose
                            The purpose of the derived projects data is to show the location of construction, land use and environmental projects within the City of Bellingham and the lower portion of Whatcom County.
