City Hall: Help create citizens' code of conduct

As part of the City’s Safe and Clean initiative, a Code of Conduct team was established and is working with citizens to explore creating a code of conduct. Starting this week, the team is hosting a series of meetings for citizens to discuss thoughts and concerns about their neighborhoods and Tacoma, and about what could be included in a citizen-developed code of conduct.

Citizens are invited to take part in the process to develop a written code of conduct. The intent is to engage the community and strengthen existing efforts occurring in neighborhoods throughout Tacoma.

Four meetings are scheduled at local schools from Aug. 25 through Sept. 8 at the following locations:

— Lincoln High School, 701 S. 37th St., Tues., Aug. 25, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

— Mt. Tahoma High School, 4634 S. 74th St., Thurs., Aug. 27, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

— Foss High School, 2112 S. Tyler St., Sat., Aug. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

— Wilson High School, 1202 N. Orchard St., Tues., Sept. 8, from 5. p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Citizens’ Code of Conduct, which will be created by and for the people who live and work in the City of Tacoma, will provide written expectations that are willingly and voluntarily followed by citizens who hold themselves and each other accountable.
