TACOMA'S MOST IMPORTANT CLIMATE POLICY IS AT RISK
Despite thousands of Tacomans calling for protections from climate polluting industries for the last four years, two Planning Commission recommendations to limit the expansion of fossil fuel facilities, and consistent requests from the Puyallup Tribe for the City to take action against fossil fuel expansions, last night City Council set to delay their decision on the Non-Interim Regulations – which would have prohibited expansions of fossil fuel companies in the Tideflats – until the Fall.
Council is set to ignore the recommendations of the Planning Commission again and renew the existing
regulations, which have a loophole that allows existing fossil fuel facilities to grow.
Help us protect the health of the south sound by sending a letter that we have drafted, and personalizing it so we can remind our councilmembers what it looks like when Tacoma leads on climate.
