Tacoma’s Landmarks Preservation Commission will be out in the community next week as it visits historic Stewart Middle School.
The site visit will allow commissioners to be briefed on a proposed $58 million renovation of the 90-year-old building, which was placed on Tacoma’s historic register in 2010. According to Tacoma Public Schools officials, the ‘modernization’ project is scheduled to begin in May 2015, and to be completed by September 2017.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission site visit is scheduled to occur on Weds., April 16, at 5:30 p.m., at Stewart Middle School, located at 5010 Pacific Ave. The public notice is available online here.
