Applicants Sought for the Sustainable Tacoma Commission


The Office of Environmental Policy and Sustainability is currently seeking applications for six positions on the Sustainable Tacoma Commission. The purpose of the Sustainable Tacoma Commission is to bring citizen accountability, transparency, and vigilance to the long-term implementation of Tacoma’s Environmental Action Plan, and to communicate and encourage public involvement regarding sustainability initiatives.


The Tacoma City Council is looking for commission members who provide a balanced representation of various stakeholders, such as the environmental, business, labor, housing, industrial, port, transportation, education, building and residential communities. Commission members serve a three-year term, and the time commitment required for active participation is generally between four to eight hours per month.


The commission currently holds its public meetings on the second Tuesday of every month from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Tacoma Municipal Building; however, this schedule could be adjusted to accommodate new members.


For more information on the Sustainable Tacoma Commission, please visit their website or contact Kristin Lynett at kristin.lynett@cityoftacoma.org or (253) 591-5571.
