The intent of the interim regulations, which were enacted by the City Council in November 2017, is to limit the establishment of certain new industrial uses, limit potential residential encroachment on industrial uses within the Port of Tacoma and Tideflats area, and prevent the conversion of industrial properties to non-industrial uses, until such time as the Tideflats Subarea Plan is completed.

Written comments may also be submitted at the hearing, or beforehand to the City Clerk’s Office at cityclerk@cityoftacoma.org or 733 Market St., Room 11, Tacoma, WA 98402, by 1 PM on Tuesday, October 23, 2018.
