‘Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge’ is Now Accepting Entries

The City of Tacoma, Metro Parks Tacoma, and the Port of Tacoma invite design teams to participate in the “Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge” going on now thru Dec. 18.

This design competition will challenge teams to tackle one of three real-world site designs to showcase sustainable solutions for stormwater runoff. The challenge provides participants an opportunity to receive hands-on learning, networking opportunities, and recognition for their creative and innovative engineering design.

Entries will be accepted in three design challenge categories:

  • Industrial Redevelopment - Port of Tacoma
  • Urban Redevelopment - Metro Parks, Tacoma
  • Green Roadway - City of Tacoma

Guided site tours of each of the three competition sites are planned during the beginning of November. Site tours will include a discussion of green infrastructure design tools, a question and answer period and the opportunity to network with other green infrastructure professionals and interested students.

The winning team from each category will receive prizes, and will be featured on Tacoma Report and in Tacoma Today, the City’s e-newsletter.
