New indoor sports center coming soon

A new, 52,000-square-foot sports facility, big enough to house two indoor soccer fields, is now under construction in South Tacoma. The Pacific Sports Center plans to open its doors in February. The new facility will be located at South 80th and Pine streets.

Help plan for growth & development

The City of Tacoma will host a community meeting on Thursday, Dec. 1 beginning at 4 p.m. to gather ideas from the community about the future of south downtown Tacoma. The meeting will kick off the South Downtown Subarea Plan and Environmental Impact Statement, which covers an area including the Dome District, Brewery District, Thea Foss Waterway and University of Washington-Tacoma (UWT).

The City is looking to citizens and property owners to help develop an inclusive plan that complements the needs of current residents and property owners, while integrating these planning decisions to promote a healthy environment and a healthy economy in the decades to come. The community meeting is scheduled from 4 -7 p.m. at the Carwein Auditorium on the UWT campus located at 1900 Commerce St. in the Keystone Building, Room 102.
