One Tacoma: Comprehensive Plan

One Tacoma Plan 

Everyone in Tacoma deserves a city that keeps us safe, lets us live sustainably with our land and water, and contributes to our physical, social, and economic health.

Tacoma’s Comprehensive Plan is an important tool that establishes the City’s future vision and policy direction, as well as guiding growth and development over the next 25 years. The City's Transportation Master Plan is also being updated, which helps determine our community's current and future transportation needs, while strategically guiding investment to develop a safe, accessible, and multimodal transportation system.

The Comprehensive Plan guides decisions on:

  • Housing
  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Environment
  • Parks + Recreation
  • Economic Development
  • Utilities + Services

You can be part of shaping these decisions during the once-in-a-decade update to Tacoma’s Comprehensive Plan, which is happening now through 2025. Opportunities to share your thoughts are coming soon and will include activities like:

  • Surveys
  • Events
  • Workshops

How the One Tacoma Plan is Organized

The One Tacoma Plan is organized into "books". Book One comprises the core policy elements. Book Two includes functional and programmatic elements that more directly span both policy and code/implementation. Elements of Book One and Book Two are posted below for your review/download.
