Due to forecasted inclement weather, open houses for the 2019 Annual Amendments on Monday, Feb. 11, and Wednesday, Feb. 13, have been postponed. New dates will be announced at a later time. Currently, the open houses on Feb. 21, 25 and 27 are still taking place.
Throughout February, Tacoma’s Planning staff is conducting open houses in support of the 2019 Amendments to the One Tacoma: Comprehensive Plan and Land Use regulations. A primary focus of these discussions will be the Future Land Use Implementation project and potential area-wide rezones.
These open houses are an opportunity for community members to learn about the changes that are proposed, about how the review process works and how to get involved. Participants can also help staff identify issues to consider during the review process. An open house is scheduled for each Council District:
