Community forum will explore Tacoma’s Bayside Slope management

 

The City of Tacoma and Stadium Business District officials will hold a community forum this month to discuss the management of Tacoma’s Bayside Slope.

The meeting follows a public forum in September to discuss the future management of Bayside Slope, Schuster Parkway Promenade, and public views along Stadium Way. According to meeting organizers, the Stadium Business District convened a committee to draft a set of proposed design parameters for Bayside Slope that recognizes the need for sound science, vegetation management, as well as the need to protect and preserve public views of Puget Sound and Mount Rainier from Stadium Way.

A follow-up meeting will be held on Thurs., Jan. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Tacoma Landmark Catering & Convention Center, located at 47 St. Helens Ave., in Tacoma. Tacoma City Councilmember Robert Thoms, City of Tacoma Environmental Services Director Mike Slevin, and Stadium Business District officials are scheduled to attend, according to organizers.

For more information, contact Stadium Business District Manager Denny Faker at (253) 278-8463.
