Biot, France becomes Tacoma's newest sister city

Tacoma City Council Tuesday approved Biot, France to be Tacoma’s newest sister city. This is Tacoma’s 12th sister city. Biot, France is a small village located near the Mediterranean Sea. Biot is known for its glassworks, and Tacoma and Biot plan to base much of their relationship on this commonality. A Tacoma-Biot Sister City committee was formed over six months ago and completed the application process to become a formal sister city. A delegation from Biot, including their mayor, is scheduled to visit Tacoma in May to sign the official documents. The Tacoma-Biot Sister City Committee is accepting members who are interested in becoming involved with this new relationship. Contact Debbie Bingham, sister city coordinator, at for more information. For more information, visit .
