Description
Abstract
                            NES identified 47 parcels in the study area that have the potential to serve as mitigation sites. Mitigation opportunities were detected in each watershed within the study area. Details on the potential opportunities have been included in the GIS data for each parcel identified. 
                          
Purpose
                             In recent years there has been increased development pressure in the North Bellingham area. City infrastructure, such as expansion of utilities and roads, are in planning phases at this time. As the City responds to growth, associated infrastructure may require impacts to regulated
critical areas, particularly wetlands. The City has requested a review and identification of potential mitigation sites so they can plan for these projects and provide sustainable, meaningful mitigation for unavoidable impacts.
