On April 10, 2012, the Tacoma City Council approved Biot, France to be Tacoma’s newest sister city. This is Tacoma’s 12th sister city.
Biot, France is a small village located near the Mediterranean Sea. Biot is known for its glassworks, and Tacoma and Biot plan to base much of their relationship on this commonality.
A Tacoma-Biot Sister City committee was formed over six months ago and completed the application process to become a formal sister city. A delegation from Biot, including their Mayor is scheduled to come to Tacoma this May to sign the official documents.
The Tacoma-Biot Sister City Committee is accepting members who are interested in becoming involved with this new relationship. Contact Debbie Bingham, sister city coordinator, at email@example.com for more information.
