Whatcom County is seeking to construct a new, larger jail in the county and has notified Ferndale that the main site being reviewed is within Ferndale city limits.
The City of Ferndale is currently engaging the public, members of the Planning Commission and the City Council to review Ferndale laws related to how facilities like jails should be constructed.
We invite you to follow along in this process at our jail planning repository site, where we will continue to post information related to the review process. Click the link to see documents, learn about upcoming meetings and more.

The City of Ferndale Arts Commission is now accepting artist applications for this year's Art in the Park event, to be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. September 14 and 15.
Selected artists will have the opportunity to show their work at Ferndale's Historic Pioneer Park, and artist demonstration will be an important part of the event.
While the Arts Commission wishes to support all Ferndale-area artists, space is limited for this event. Applications are due by June 15, and selected artists will be notified by June 21. A $50 participation fee is required, and secures the artist's place in the event and will help cover event costs. For more information and to apply to participate in this wonderful event, visit the Arts Commission's web section right here.
