Douglas Gustafson II started this petition to City of Bellingham

The City of Bellingham has allowed HomesNOW to operate Swift Haven, a Tiny Home Community, located on city land at 1555 Puget St, Bellingham, WA 98229 in the upper Frank Geri fields parking lot since December of 2020. Swift Haven houses around 25 people while they look for permanent housing. The current site has all needed amenities. The City has stated that July 1st, 2021 is our end date and the village will be moved to Port property on Cornwall avenue, which will reduce the quality of life for residents where there will be fewer amenities (such as reduced laundry and shower capability) in a higher crime neighborhood at greater taxpayer expense to set up the site such as sewer line, water access, electric lines, and the cost of the move itself.  

We, the undersigned, are in favor of extending Swift Haven beyond July 1st of 2021 and to allow the village to go through the standard permitting process for its current location at 1555 Puget St. Bellingham, WA 98229
