Currently, the City of Tacoma is addressing the ease, simplicity and predictability of its permitting process. To that end, the Planning and Development Services Department is initiating the creation of a Unified Development Code (UDC).
The UDC will help by streamlining and consolidating the development codes, permits and processes into a single, more user-friendly document. The finished document will include all development-related regulations. The UDC will provide a predictable, customer service-oriented process allowing for increased economic development and investment.
Current Status: Draft development and code reorganization is underway.
