Learn more about the status of on-street parking pay stations in Tacoma at a public meeting Thursday starting at 5 p.m. at the Pantages Theater, located at South 9th Street and Broadway. This is the last public meeting before the pay stations are operational on Sept. 20. Over the last year, a 12-member panel of citizens and business leaders was established to advise Tacoma’s city manager and the City Council on key features of the paid parking system. The advisory group has held monthly meetings for stakeholders and interested citizens on the first Thursday of each month since April 2010. The parking system will soon be finalized for implementation. If you would like to weigh-in on the process, you are encouraged to attend the meeting.
