KMNA Board


In 1997, the County designated this area, now the King Mt. Neighborhood, within Bellingham’s Urban Growth Area (UGA) and approved high density residential zoning.  For more than a decade this area had urban zoning with only rural services. In 2006 a group of King Mountain area residents formed a committee to annex this UGA into the city of Bellingham.  Although city staff was helpful in numerous ways; it was the property owners who made annexation happen. The final path to annexation was a vote of the property owners within the proposed area.  The final tally showed an overwhelming majority of the property owners favored annexation into Bellingham.  Thus, in 2009, King Mountain became Bellingham’s 25th neighborhood.


City of Bellingham / Neighborhood Plan / King Mountain - January 1, 2011

There is strong evidence that the King Mountain Neighborhood will have significant

growth in the future. Located between large industrial and commercial areas, the

neighborhood has had a long history of urban zoning.


Since 2009 the KMNA board has hosted and supported many social, political and educational activities for our neighbors.  It has always been the board’s goal to inform people of issues and activities affecting our area and how we as a neighborhood can be involved with the decisions that affect us. The King Mountain Neighborhood will continue to be a major residential infill area for the city of Bellingham.  Participants working within our neighborhood association have expressed a commitment to helping this neighborhood remain a healthy place to live.  A strong and active neighborhood association can have substantial impact on present and future decisions that help create the personality and livability of this community.



The King Mountain Neighborhood encompasses approximately 635 acres between the Meridian and the Irongate Neighborhoods. Baker Creek, Silver Creek, and tributaries of Squalicum Creek along with associated wetlands and wooded areas are found throughout the neighborhood. The most prominent feature of the neighborhood is King Mountain. Many of the houses in the area enjoy panoramic views of the City, Bellingham Bay, and the San Juan Islands. Four important transportation arterials bisect the King Mountain Neighborhood. They include East Bakerview Road, Telegraph Road, James Street, and Kellogg Road.
