Tideflats Subarea Plan
The Tideflats Subarea Plan is a planning process that will establish a long-term vision for the TacomaTideflats by adopting rules for what types of industry can set up shop, how we will protect natural areas and clean up contaminated sites, and how we will prioritize funding for infrastructure investments. The City of Tacoma, Puyallup Tribe of Indians, Port of Tacoma, City of Fife, and Pierce County are the governing bodies that make up the Steering Committee for the Plan, and who make decisions on how the plan moves forward.
Communities for a Healthy Bay serves on the Technical Advisory Group for the Subarea Planning process. This means we pay extra attention to this process and make recommendations to ensure that the Tideflats can be a place where clean energy facilities and manufacturing can grow, workers and nearby residents don’t get sick from toxic industry, and Tacoma transitions away from fossil fuels.
