The Tacoma City Council is looking to fill two three-year terms on the Foss Waterway Development Authority (FWDA) Board.

The FWDA consists of seven members who are appointed by the Economic Development Committee and confirmed by the City Council. Each member serves a minimum three-year term and the time commitment is approximately four to six hours a month, plus six hours for an annual retreat. The role of the FWDA is to implement the Master Plan for the Foss Waterway, including the sale, lease, development and management of public properties in and along the waterway.  

Members shall be civic or business leaders with experience in such fields as finance, real estate development, law or construction management and, to the extent possible, a majority of the membership shall be residents of Pierce County. The FWDA will undertake, assist with, and otherwise facilitate the redevelopment of property within and along the Thea Foss Waterway, currently an underutilized and blighted waterfront area in the heart of Tacoma.

Please visit the FWDA’s webpage for additional information, or contact Louise Dreyer at (253) 597-8122.

Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by Friday, Nov. 7, 2014. To apply, please visit cityoftacoma.org/cbcapplication or contact Linnea Meredith at (253) 591-5178, City Clerk’s Office, Room 11, Municipal Building North, 733 Market St., Tacoma, WA 98402.
