Help shape the future of housing in Tacoma by commenting on the following proposed actions:

  • Allow more housing types throughout Tacoma’s neighborhoods, such as duplexes, triplexes, cottage housing, and in some cases fourplexes and small multifamily housing
  • Allow mid-scale multifamily housing in areas close to shopping and transit
  • Update design standards so new housing complements the neighborhood
  • Strengthen policies and programs to make housing more affordable
  • Strengthen anti-racism and anti-displacement policies and programs    

The Home In Tacoma Project package includes Comprehensive Plan updates, near-term code updates, an environmental review of potential growth impacts, and a Housing Action Plan to guide implementation over time.
