Listed below, for documentation purposes, are the four applications for the 2022 Amendment reviewed by the Planning Commission during the Assessment Phase (before moving into the Technical Analysis Phase):

  • Application "NewCold" - Seeking land use designation change at a 3-acre site near Orchard and S. 46th St. to allow for expansion of an existing heavy industrial use.
  • Application "South Sound Christian Schools" - Seeking land use designation changes on 8 parcels near Tacoma Mall Boulevard and S. 64th St. to allow for multi-family and commercial uses on some of the parcels.      
  • Application "South Tacoma Economic Green Zone" - Requesting a broad review of the general area of the South Tacoma Groundwater Protection District to promote an Eco-Industrial Park and Economic Green Zone concept.
  • Application "Minor Plan and Code Amendments" - Proposing some non-policy changes to the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Use Regulatory Code to correct errors, address inconsistencies, and clarify their policy and regulatory intents.


This website is for the project of 2022 Annual Amendment to the One Tacoma Comprehensive Plan and/or the Land Use Regulatory Code ("2022 Amendment"). The amendment cycle runs from January 2021 through June 2022.


The One Tacoma Plan is the blueprint for achieving the community's vision for future growth and the Land Use Regulatory Code (Title 13 of the Tacoma Municipal Code) is a key tool to implementing the goals and policies of the Plan. These documents are reviewed and amended, generally, on an annual basis in accordance with the State Growth Management Act in order to maintain their effectiveness.


The Application Packet that was used to solicit applications during January-March 2021 is posted below for documentation purposes. It provides background information about why the Plan and the Code are amended, the types of amendments that may be considered, who may propose amendments, and who to contact for more information.
