Public Hearing for Tideflats Interim Regulations Extension on April 23


The Tacoma City Council will hold a public hearing during the City Council meeting on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, to gather public comments on the proposed 6-month extension of the current Tideflats Interim Regulations. This City Council meeting will be held in the Tacoma Municipal Building Council Chambers (747 Market St., 1st Floor) and will begin at 5 PM with the public hearing beginning at approximately 5:15 PM.


The intent of the interim regulations, which were enacted by the City Council in November 2017, is to limit the establishment of certain new industrial uses, limit potential residential encroachment on industrial uses within the Port of Tacoma and Tideflats area, and prevent the conversion of industrial properties to non-industrial uses, until such time as the Tideflats Subarea Plan is completed.


Written comments may also be submitted at the hearing, or beforehand to the City Clerk’s Office at cityclerk@cityoftacoma.org or 733 Market Street, Room 11, Tacoma, WA 98402, by 3 PM on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
