Proctor District Neighborhood

Proctor Neighborhood Plan

ProctorThe City’s pilot Neighborhood Planning Program (NPP) provides enhanced planning and development support to help communities create strong, vibrant, and diverse neighborhoods.  


City Council identified the Proctor Neighborhood as a priority for the pilot year of the Neighborhood Planning Program. The Proctor NPP will focus on: 

  • Managing change and growth 
  • Traffic safety and parking 
  • Creating a healthy and sustainable neighborhood 
  • Community engagement for the adaptive reuse of the Cushman & Adams Substations  


For the purpose this plan, we are defining “neighborhood” as the Mixed-Use Center and the surrounding residential neighborhood. These boundaries may be adjusted during the planning process, but it is important to include public amenities (such as parks and schools) that service the core neighborhood. 


The Call: Get Involved, Stay Engaged! 

Neighborhood stakeholders, led by a stakeholder committee working closely with a consultant team, will determine the goals of the plan and assist with creating a roadmap for implementation. Please contact neighborhoodplanning@cityoftacoma.org if you’re interested in participating. The only requirement is that you live, work, or spend substantial time in Proctor. 


Ways to get involved include: 

  • Joining the Stakeholder Committee in your neighborhood 

  • Volunteering to assist with surveys, leading outreach, hosting an event, or helping build connections with community members who prefer Spanish, Russian, Khmer, Vietnamese, Korean, Tagalog, ASL or other languages.  

  • Responding to surveys

Take the Neighborhood Survey! 


Kick-Off Fall 2022 

We will kick off the program in fall 2022 and anticipate completing the plan and starting the early implementation process within 12 to 18 months. 


Project Funding 

The NPP will provide funding for technical support by a consultant team and some prioritized implementationMajor projects will be accomplished through partnerships between the City and its partners.
