Birch Point Road & Birch Bay Drive Stop Signs--Additional Information

In January 2023, Whatcom County Public Works (WCPW) proposed an ordinance to ‘install stop signs on certain county roads.’ This ordinance was introduced at the Whatcom County Council meeting on February 7, 2023, and put to a public hearing and vote at the Council meeting on February 21, 2023. The Council adopted this ordinance by a vote of 7-0. 

Ordinance 2023-004 authorizes WCPW to install stop signs at the intersection of Birch Point Road and Birch Bay Drive for southbound traffic on Birch Point Road and westbound traffic on Birch Bay Drive.

In response to community feedback, WCPW has prepared an info sheet detailing the ordinance’s purpose and the alternative options that were investigated. It also addresses specific concerns that have been brought up about the stop signs. We hope this helps to answer the questions raised since Ordinance 2023-004 was adopted.
