Episode Info:

We got City Councilman Ryan Mello and Principal Planner Stephen Atkinson together to talk about the future of land use on Tacoma’s Tideflats, where heavy industry and fossil fuel production are being called into question by nearby neighbors and environmentalists. If you’ve ever heard the terms “interim regulations” or “subarea plan” and had no idea what they meant, this is for you.

But don’t be scared, it’s not TOO technical! We laid out the city’s vision for this regionally-designated manufacturing industrial center the current rules that are in place while a permanent road map for the future is sorted out.

Stay tuned for the second half: With more than 100,000 new Tacomans expected to move here in the next 20 years, we talked about what the Tideflats’ future means in the big picture of HOW Tacoma needs to transform to accommodate all that growth.
