Community Gardens in Tacoma

The City of Tacoma is creating seven new community gardens for the 2010 growing season. This is terrific news for gardeners and neighborhoods throughout Tacoma.

Last week residents living near the gardens received a Public Notice about the gardens (yellow notice sent). Basically, it's part of the Land Use Permit Procedures and is a requirement to let citizens in the neighborhoods know about the city plans.

You can help by submitting written comments supporting the gardens before April 29th.

File Number: INT2010-40000143179
To allow the use of "community gardens" pursuant to Tacoma Municipal Code Section 13.05.030.E Permitted Uses - Uses Not Specifically Classified.

The case file may also be viewed in the Building and Land Use Services Division, 747 Market Street, room 345. Staff contact is Philip Kao, Associate Planner, 253 591-5378 or email at

Also, related to the gardens, there will be a public meeting for anyone interested in gardening. Wednesday April 21st, 6:30pm, Evergreen College – Tacoma campus.
