Public Hearing and Open Houses Scheduled for Tacoma’s 2020 Amendments to the One Tacoma Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Regulatory Code

 

The City of Tacoma’s Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding the proposed 2020 amendments to the One Tacoma Comprehensive Plan and Land Use Regulatory Code on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom. Meeting details are available at cityoftacoma.org/2020Amendment.

This year, the City is reviewing and considering several in the annual review process, including:

  • The creation of a second category of the View Sensitive Overlay District that would potentially lower the building height limit to 20 feet for areas with similar development patterns in Tacoma in the West Slope Neighborhood. Currently, the City has in place a View Sensitive Overlay District, which mandates a 25-foot building height limit.
  • Land use designation change for the SW corner of S Tyler Street and S 19th Street from the Parks and Open Space re-designation to Major Institutional Campus on the Future Land Use Map.
  • Minor Plan and Code Amendments that include language and clarifications of code that have been identified over the past year and do not substantially change the plan or code.

City Planning and Development staff will be hosting two virtual open houses for community members who are interested in learning more about the proposed amendments.
