Come Plan for the Future of Tacoma’s Ruston Way Waterfront

Meeting, Green/Environmental, Community Event

Tacoma’s Ruston Way waterfront is so captivating that it’s easy to overlook signs indicating possible threats to its future as a welcome place for everyone. Envision Our Waterfront, a joint effort of Metro Parks Tacoma and the City of Tacoma, seeks to bring attention to those indicators at two public gatherings at Court House Square, 1102 A St., Tacoma. The first, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 29, is a visioning workshop to solicit ideas. The second, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 30, is a drop-in open house that will showcase the results of the initial gathering. Everyone is invited to participate in both or either of the two sessions. The workshop session also will feature hands-on art projects for children. The goal is to develop a shared vision for the Ruston Way waterfront that will guide future activities, improvements, development and land use in a way that protects the shoreline and ensures public access. The two sessions will bring potential problems to the forefront and encourage residents to share what they think about possible solutions. If you would like to contribute to the process and are unable to attend the workshop or open house, please contact Envision Our Waterfront project manager Andrew Austin at (253) 305-1021 or Envision Our Waterfront Visioning Workshop and Open House. What: Help shape the future of Tacoma’s Ruston Way waterfront. When: Visioning workshop from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 29; Open house from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30.
