The City of Tacoma will host an open house this month to discuss major streetscape improvements in the Lincoln International Business District.
The City has set aside approximately $4 million this biennium for improvements to the district, which is centered at South 38th Street and South Yakima Avenue. In March, the City spent approximately $125,000 to replace 31 ornamental street lights (as well as 20 standard street lights) with similar-looking, eco-friendly light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs (see “LED street lights coming to Tacoma’s Lincoln International Business District,” Tacoma Daily Index, March 2, 2015). In May, Tacoma City Council discussed the Lincoln District Revitalization Project during a study session at Tacoma City Hall (a slide show presentation from the meeting is available online here; an audio recording of the meeting is available online here).
The Lincoln International Business District Streetscape Project open house will be held on Thurs., June 25, between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at the Jubilee Hamburger Restaurant, located at 858 S. 38th St., in Tacoma. More information about the district is available online here.
