Fairhaven Neighbors is recognized by the City of Bellingham as the non-profit organization representing the Fairhaven neighborhood community in Bellingham, Washington. The purpose of the association is to preserve, protect, and enhance the physical, economic, and social well being of the Fairhaven neighborhood; and to provide a means for citizen involvement in broader community and civic affairs; and to perform other charitable acts.
By participating and working together, we can make our neighborhood the very best it can be.

Join us from 7 to 9 p.m. on the First Wednesday of each month (except August & Dec.) at the Chuckanut Center at 103 Chuckanut Drive N.
Meetings generally have an informative presentation during the first half, followed by a break for social time and refreshments, then re-convening for a business meeting. Neighbors are encouraged to come, and may stay for the full two hours, or you are welcome to slip out before the business meeting begins at 8 p.m. If you have a neighborhood issue you would like to see addressed, please contact Brooks Anderson or any board member.
