Our Mission (Planning Services Division)
We conduct long-range, comprehensive planning activities pursuant to the State Growth Management Act and applicable federal, state, regional and local mandates.
Our goal is to guide community growth and development in a manner that protects environmental resources, enhances quality of life, promotes distinctive neighborhoods and a vibrant downtown, and involves citizens in the decisions that affect them.
We work together with the community, City Council, and Planning Commission to develop and update the Comprehensive Plan, along with neighborhood and subarea plans, and associated regulations and implementation strategies that guide the future development of the built and natural environment of Tacoma.
