At the very last minute the City council of Bellingham at the urging of Mayor Dan Pike and the clear language written 40 years ago dropped the requirement for Jacaranda to install a new trail as a requirement to receive permission to move a local water line. When I returned from my mastermind retreat I looked out my office window and saw walkers on the trail no chains or blocking signs. I called the President of Jacaranda and he told me that verbally the City of Bellingham and Jacaranda Corp agreed to a 5 day extension of the existing easment. The the final solution will be in the details in the contract that comes back from the city to get a more permanent agreement beyond the 5 day extension to work things out.
A sensible and logical compromise. Way to go
