“Situated in the northern area of the city is The Cordata Neighborhood. Bordered by Meridian Street to the east and West Bakerview Road to the south. It extends to the City limits to the north, west and southwest.
Formed in 2010 when the boundaries of the Meridian and Guide Meridian and Cordata Neighborhoods were redrawn is what makes up The Cordata Neighborhood. In order to acknowledge the area’s changing character, environment and demographics.
Also, leading to these changes included the increase in residential development and population. The presence of Whatcom Community College, the concentration of professional commercial, institutional and industrial uses along Cordata Parkway. As well as the area’s close proximity to one of Bellingham’s regional commercial areas within the adjacent Meridian Neighborhood.
