Town-hall focuses on downtown Tacoma

Development in downtown Tacoma is the topic of Pierce County Councilmember Tim Farrell’s second town-hall meeting of the year Oct. 3 from 6 to 7 p.m. Tacoma City Councilmember Rick Talbert will join Farrell at the meeting, which will be at the 505 Broadway Showroom at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Market Street. Developers, city of Tacoma and Pierce County economic development staff and other city councilmembers also will be there. Respondents to Farrell’s survey earlier this year said downtown development was an issue they wanted to learn more about. The meeting will be informal and interactive and allow for discussion about present and future development projects in central Tacoma.
