What is Community Based Services?
The City of Tacoma has launched a new way of providing services to highlight community strengths and address problems that prevent neighborhoods from thriving and its people from feeling connected.
Dedicated teams are partnering with community and business members in four pilot areas of Tacoma. We???re working together to address issues of safety, housing, street design, neighborhood planning, commercial revitalization and other priorities you identify.
Because this community-based program reflects the people in the four initial focus areas, it is likely to look and feel different in each of the neighborhoods.
Please select from the links above to learn more about how the process is working.
If you are a Tacoma community member outside of our CBS areas and you require assistance relating to poorly-maintained properties, please visit the Tacoma CARES Web site to report code enforcement violations. For concerns relating to crime and public safety, please visit the Tacoma Police Department Web site.
