Government agencies seek input on 19th and Tyler property

The City of Tacoma, Pierce County, Metro Parks Tacoma and Tacoma School District want to hear from you, the community, as they explore the possibility of making improvements to the publicly owned property located at South 19th and South Tyler streets in Tacoma. This property is the current location of Cheney Stadium, Foss High School, Heidelberg-Davis Field, Metro Parks Tacoma’s headquarters building and the Boy Scouts building.

Public meetings are scheduled Thurs., June 19 at 5:30 p.m. in the Foss High School cafeteria (2112 S. Tyler St.); and Mon., June 23 at 6 p.m. in the Boy Scouts of America Great Room (4802 S. 19th St.)

Local architectural firm BCRA has been hired to facilitate the gathering of information and the analysis of opportunities, constraints and issues regarding potential uses of the property. A key component of this project is gathering public input on what is important to the community and how community interests can best be incorporated into any future improvements of the property. You are invited to share your ideas. This is a preliminary information gathering study — currently no development options or plans have been created.
