Applicants Sought for the Planning Commission

The Tacoma City Council is looking to fill two positions on the Planning Commission, the District Nos. 3 and 5 positions. Applicants seeking a district position must reside in that district and will serve a term of three years from July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2024.


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.
