Join the City for the first parks event of 2023, a free paper airplane derby on Saturday, Feb. 4th from 10AM-1PM at the Pioneer Pavilion (2007 Cherry St).
There will be materials and instructions to make several different designs of paper airplanes (everything from the jumbo glider to a paper airplane TIE fighter) and then participants can compete for distance and accuracy or even fly their plane in our make-shift wind tunnel.
Come out for this perfect rainy Saturday activity. Snacks included, all ages and abilities welcome.
For more information, please contact Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney at firstname.lastname@example.org or (360) 685-2353.
The City of Ferndale is in the process of developing an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Transition Plan to guide when and where mobility improvements need to be made. City staff are conducting an inventory of current pedestrian facilities throughout the entire city to find gaps in and barriers to accessibility.
To assist with this effort, the City is hosting an online open house and community survey to gather input from residents as to what needs to be improved. Regardless of whether or not someone has difficulty moving through Ferndale, the City wants to hear their voice as part of this process.
Online open house and survey are available here: www.cityofferndale.org/FerndaleADA
Elected officials, city staff and contractors gathered Thursday afternoon to cut the ribbon at Ferndale’s newly expanded Wastewater Treatment Facility. The new facilities include additional capacity to receive and process wastewater that should accommodate the city’s growing population and a new laboratory and testing facility to ensure all relevant water quality standards are met.
Guests toured the new headworks, grit and aeration basins, clarifiers and UV disinfection facilities that make up the Wastewater Treatment process.
“This is the largest capital project the City of Ferndale has undertaken and I am proud to see it up and running,” said Mayor Greg Hansen.
The project was designed by Wilson Engineering, constructed by McClure and Sons, and overseen by City staff. For more details on Ferndale’s utilities, see www.cityofferndale.org/water. Additional photos of the event available on the City’s facebook page here.
