The FLUM, Figure 2 of the One Tacoma Plan, illustrates the City’s intended future land use pattern through the geographic distribution of residential and commercial areas, mixed-use and manufacturing/industrial centers, as well as shoreline and single-family detached areas. This land use distribution was a result of the study of the urban form policies, existing land use and zoning, development trends, anticipated land use needs and desirable growth and development goals. Various types of zoning and land use may be permitted within each of the designations. The map is to be used in conjunction with the adopted policies of the Comprehensive Plan for any land use decision.
The FLUM provides a basis for applying zoning districts and for making land use decisions. Policies should be considered and interpreted in accordance with the geographic characteristics of the mapped areas. Table 3 below depicts the relationship between the land use designations and zoning classifications.
