Port official ponders new use for Bellingham waterfront space

Port of Bellingham Commissioner Mike McAuley wants to jump-start some economic activity on the waterfront by refurbishing what’s been an underused warehouse. On Tuesday, Nov. 3, McAuley gave a tour of the 50,000-square-foot building to a group of citizens, including many tied to the local tourism industry, to get feedback on whether it’s feasible to convert it to an expo center.
