Got feedback? Proposed City code changes target public safety

In response to community feedback, the City of Tacoma is working on updates to the Chronic Nuisance Code (TMC 8.30A) and Business License Code (6B.10).

The code changes are intended to “positively affect communities by encouraging property and business owners to be good neighbors. Strengthening the code will also allow the City to respond faster to concerns and provide more options to the City when businesses and other properties do not comply.”

The City Council will review the proposed changes at Study Session on August 14th and adoption of approved changes is expected by September 30, 2018.

Any comments regarding any of the proposed changes can be sent to
