Whatcom County Council has given the go-ahead to the parks department to demolish 11 buildings at Bay Horizon Park in Birch Bay. Bids for the demolition are expected to go out in March or early April.
The parks staff report recommending the demolition citing the dilapidated nature of the buildings as well as the presence of asbestos as reasons for their request. Staff stated the post-WWII buildings as too far gone to consider renovations.
Future plans for the building sites could include ball fields, walking trails and other uses.
