The City of Tacoma is considering new land use regulations in the Port of Tacoma Manufacturing and Industrial Center and Industrial Zoning Districts City-wide to address the following issues:  

 

  • Public notification requirements for permits and land use amendments;  

  • Conversion of industrial lands to non-industrial uses in the Port of Tacoma Manufacturing and Industrial Center; 

  • Encroachment of residential developments on the Port of Tacoma Manufacturing and Industrial Center; and  

  • Siting of potentially high risk/high impact heavy industrial uses citywide 

 

If approved by the City Council the interim regulations first established in November 2017 through Amended Ordinance 28470 and renewed every six months through June of 2021 would expire. 

 

For more information about the proposed amendments or for information about the amendment process and the One Tacoma Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Regulatory Code, visit the project webpage at cityoftacoma.org/tideflatsinterim.
