I just got a youtube message bringing to my attention the fact that Bellingham is considering partially lifting it's ban on Big Box stores. I think it'd be too bad if they reversed themselves so quickly after creating the ban, but at least it wouldn't be lifted without conditions. I made this video in 2007 when the ban was first put in place, but wanted to re-surface it now that the topic is up for debate again... I was doing videography for the city council meetings on BTV10 at the time so I watched the whole debate unfold in excrutiating detail. Believe it or not I actually found that job really interesting (most of the time) and would jump at the chance to do it again... call me Seattle Channel!
