Tideflats Subarea Plan

About the Plan

Subarea planning allows for the establishment of a shared, long-term vision, and a more coordinated approach to development, environmental review, and strategic capital investments in a focused area. Completion of a subarea plan will support the ongoing eligibility for and prioritization of transportation funding in the Port of Tacoma Manufacturing/Industrial Center.

Tideflats Advisory Group

Introduction

The Tideflats Advisory Group (TAG) will act as a "sounding board" for policy discussions, providing support to the Steering Committee and City of Tacoma during their respective parts of the process.  In addition to its role as a sounding board, the TAG members will serve as liaisons to the broader stakeholder groups they represent.

  

The TAG is intended to reflect a broad and diverse representation of interests and perspectives on the future development of the Tideflats area. The composition of the TAG was agreed to by the Steering Committee in the Work Plan. 

 

TAG meetings will be open to the public.
