Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Advisory Group


Through the passage of Resolution 40303 on April 16, 2019, the City established a Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Advisory Group to help inform the design and development of significant transit projects throughout the City including the Dome District, one of the region’s most transit-rich areas.


The City has retained VIA Architecture to prepare some background work to assist the TOD Advisory Group in their initial review and to inform an Urban Land Institute Technical Advisory Panel that will be analyzing the Dome District opportunities this fall.


The TOD Advisory Group includes representatives from:

  • Architectural and Urban Design Community
  • Development Community
  • Affordable Housing Community
  • Transit Community
  • Tacoma Dome District Businesses and/or Residents
  • Pacific Avenue Corridor Businesses and/or Residents
  • Transportation Commission
  • Planning Commission
  • Puyallup Tribe/Lower Portland District
  • Active Transportation and Accessibility for All
  • Freight/East Foss Industrial Community
