Applicants Sought for Planning Commission Term Through June 2025

The Tacoma City Council is currently seeking applicants to fill three positions on the Planning Commission: the Architecture, Historic Preservation, and/or Urban Design position; the District No. 4 position; and the Environmental Community position. Applicants seeking a district position must reside in that district. Appointees will serve a three-year term from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2025.


The Planning Commission develops and updates the Comprehensive Plan and its elements; and formulates effective and efficient land use and development regulations and processes that implement the Comprehensive Plan. This Commission reviews various planning issues, such as area-wide zoning reclassifications, moratoria, interim zoning, pre-annexation planning, historic district designation, urban design, and transportation and capital facilities programs. Meetings occur the first and third Wednesday of each month beginning at 5:00 p.m.


The City is committed to creating an equitable and anti-racist community and wants our committees, boards, and commissions to reflect our diverse community. For these vacancies, Black and Indigenous community members, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with disabilities, seniors, immigrants, and refugees are especially encouraged to apply.
