Support the South Tacoma Economic Green Zone!

City of Tacoma

As we all know, due to Global Warming, protection of fresh water will be critical.

As temperatures rise, less snowfall on Mt. Rainier means less run-off to the rivers which Tacoma relies on for one water source.  Hot, dry summers (as we experienced last year, and are predicted to continue) means we will be more and more dependent on the South Tacoma Aquifer.

The South Tacoma Economic Green Zone, submitted by the neighborhood council, has a plan for new possibilities, moving away from allowing heavily-polluting industry in the middle of our urban area and above the groundwater aquifer.

Please add your name to this petition which will send the following comments to the City Council Public Hearing, noted below:

Tuesday, June 7th Public Hearing for 2022 Annual Amendments during the City Council Meeting.
City Council meeting starts at 5pm -- the Public Hearing is later in that meeting.

It's time for the city to reverse pollution and environmental racism in South Tacoma, by:

- passing the South Tacoma Economic Green Zone Phase-1a Work Plan to begin updating the overdue South Tacoma Groundwater Protection District land-use overlay,

- and including a moratorium on any new permitting within this groundwater district and recharge areas until the code has been appropriately updated.
