Fireman's Park Community Input Meeting on August 29

 

Fireman's Park located at (801 A St.) has undergone safety enhancements and has been open for public use throughout the summer. City of Tacoma staff has been soliciting feedback on how the community sees using the park in the future. The next opportunity for community input is on Thursday, August 29, from 6 – 7 PM, at the Tacoma Municipal Building (747 Market St., RM 148).

 

Staff from multiple City departments will be available to provide updates and collect additional input for the next phase, which covers tree plantings, some landscaping, seating options, and art installations. Information on the community input received to date, tree plantings for Green Tacoma Day, and examples of potential seating options will also be shared.

 

The Port of Tacoma, in partnership with the City’s Office of Arts & Cultural Vitality, is commissioning new artwork commemorating the Port’s 100th anniversary that will be installed at Fireman’s Park in 2020. Local artist team Rotator Creative was recently selected for the project through a competitive process. The artists will also be at the meeting to discuss their process and answer questions.
