    Background:

     

    Why Are Plan and Code Amended?

    The One Tacoma Plan is the blueprint for achieving the community's vision for future growth and 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.

     

    What Are the Types of Proposed Amendments That May Be Considered?

    - Text changes to the Plan

    - Text changes to the Code

    - Land Use Designation changes

    - Area-wide rezones

    - Interim zoning or moratorium

     

    Who May Propose an Amendment?

    Amendments may be initiated by the City of Tacoma or proposed by any private individual, organization, corporation, partnership or entity of any kind. City-initiated amendments are generally processed in odd-year adoption cycles and private-initiated amendments processed in even-year adoption cycles.

     

    Why Would You Propose an Amendment?

    If you would like to contribute to the enhancements of the plan or the code, or if you have suggestions about how the plan or the code could be modified to better support the envisioned development of any neighborhood or specific parcels, you are welcome to consider submitting an application.

     

    Who to Contact for More Information?

    Pre-application meetings are strongly recommended and can be scheduled before submitting an application.
