Welcome to the Samish Neighborhood Association

Samish Neighborhood Association (SNA) represents the largest included area of 25 neighborhoods in Bellingham - 2,030 acres including Lake Padden Park. Approximately 3,600 people in about 1,550 households live in this southern Bellingham neighborhood filled with large and small single-family homes & lots, multi-family units, mobile home units, pastoral lands, trails and recreation areas.

Our primary mission is to organize residents living within the boundaries of Samish Neighborhood and serve as a public voice for them. We focus our specific efforts on promoting the interests of the neighborhood in matters of land use, zoning and other laws, regulations, rules and ordinances. As an elected board, our overall goal is to work to help protect the quality of life and character of the neighborhood that brought you to Samish.

Our website attempts to provide timely news and updated information for the residents of Samish Neighborhood and we encourage you to visit periodically to stay informed.

Currently, two SNA newsletters are published annually (February & August) and mailed to all postal addresses within the Samish Neighborhood boundaries - in order to directly reach all residents and apprise them of current issues & upcoming neighborhood activities.

This is your website and, as such, your comments and contributions are not only welcome but essential for a healthy exchange of news and ideas. Email your questions, contributions and requests to samishneighborhood@gmail.com

We encourage you to join the SNA to support your neighborhood and to protect your investment. Annual membership dues for a household of any size are $15 ($12 for seniors) and are payable in March. Click here for the membership form.

The SNA board meets regularly on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the lower level of the Community Baptist Church, 810 S. Samish Way. Occasionally, these meetings may be cancelled – check on the website Home page for updated info. These meetings are open to all Samish residents and the general public.
