SUMAS — The Sumas City Council will hold a public hearing about two development projects during the July 26 meeting. 

The council will discuss Sumas Development LLC’s General Binding Site plan, which is the first step to subdividing a 48-acre industrial property by the Burlington Northern Railroad. 

The plan includes all of the proposed infrastructure and elements, including roads and utilities. The council must approve the plan in order to move to Phase 4 of the project, which would create development lots on the property over the course of five years. 

The council will also discuss a proposed plan to improve the Sumas Event Center. This includes construction of a new stormwater management facility, grandstands and restrooms. 

The virtual-only meeting will start on Zoom at 7 p.m. 

The meeting agenda, and documents for both development projects, can be found at
