Council PUBLIC Meeting


Monday, June 5, 2017 6:00 pm

Trimble Forum – UPS Campus
1500 N Warner St
Tacoma, WA 98416


The main topic at our June 5th meeting will be the

Upcoming Changes to Tacoma’s Zoning Code.

Senior Planner, Stephen Atkinson of the City of Tacoma will be joining us to answer questions and go over

what is being proposed.  Also update on Infill Housing.

This is an important issue for many residents whose property may be rezoned. For example, some single-family residences will be re-zoned to multifamily and other new uses.


Come learn where this will be occurring, why and how you can have a voice in the development of your

Community and City at large.


NENC seeks residents to help with ‘Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful’ project

NENC is seeking North End residents to help form a volunteer crew to work on one of the pre-approved Paint Tacoma Beautiful homes. Contact Susan Ryan for more information or to join the crew!

Crews are typically made up of 10-15 people. We are looking for a variety of people including those who don’t mind getting dirty/painty, who enjoy working in a team, and some who can work on ladders.  Any ages are welcome; we just ask for adult supervision for those under 15.

Volunteers work in shifts of 3-8 hours. It generally takes 3-4 shifts to get a home prepped and painted, often with a few days’ break between different parts of the job to allow for drying. Work out your own schedule, on weekdays, evenings or weekends.

Founded in 1985, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful (PTPB) organizes volunteer crews each summer to paint the exteriors of homes of low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners in Tacoma and other communities throughout Pierce County.  Since 1985, nearly 2,200 houses have been painted. In 2017, they plan to paint 27 more!

To join the North End Neighborhood Council-sponsored group, contact Susan Ryan.
