Bellingham, Wash. -- Ballots must be postmarked by today for the special election that could create a new park district in Bellingham to pay for the city's "Hundred Acre Wood."
The new park district boundaries would include all of Southwest Bellingham west of I5 and south of Western Washington University.
If approved, property owners in the new district would see their property taxes go up by 28 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
The money would be used to repay the $3.2 million loan from the city's Greenways Endowment Fund.
Ballots can also be dropped off at the auditor's office or at the ballot drop box in the south Courthouse parking lot on Grand Ave. through 8 pm.
Voters in the Concrete School District are also voting on a continuing levy that pays for educational programs.
