Support Tacoma Tideflats Jobs
The Tacoma City Council is trying to rush through new permanent regulations for the Tideflats/ Port of Tacoma called the Non-Interim Regulations that will have significant negative economic impact on Tacoma and the entire region. These regulations will harm current living wage employers and hinder investment in new and existing facilities. These regulations are part of the broader effort to deindustrialize Washington and will cost jobs!
Make your voice heard on these new regulations at a Tacoma City Council public hearing on April 27th at 5:00pm (4:45pm if testifying).
The Tideflats/ Port of Tacoma businesses support more than 42,100 jobs.
The Non-Interim Regulations are permanent regulations that are being rushed through that include some of most destructive elements being considered in the Tideflats Subarea Plan Land Use reregulation process. The Subarea Plan review process is expected to take a couple more years. Council is using the Non-Interim Regulations to push through some of the most controversial elements of the Subarea Plan in the next couple of months. We must tell the Tacoma City Council to slow the process down and give everyone adequate time to review these complex regulations. Rushing through these permanent Non-Interim Regulations is needless and irresponsible.
