Public Open House - Point Defiance Park Entrance Redesign

posted Aug 1, 2014, 3:45 PM by Town Clerk
You are invited to an Open House to discuss the Point Defiance Park entrance area. 

Date & Time: Wednesday, August 13, 6:30pm – 8pm 
Open House Location: Point Defiance Park Pagoda 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The Pearl Street entrance to Point Defiance Park has long been a 
concern. To address congestion and substantially increase pedestrian safety, current plans include redesigning the entrance as a roundabout. The City of Tacoma and Metro Parks Tacoma are reaching out to the immediate neighbors affected by the intersection. As further planning and design proceed, City and Metro Parks Tacoma are asking the area residents/businesses to consider possible closures of N. Park Ave. and 54th Street at Pearl Street. 

Please stop by during the above time to share your resident perspective. Can’t make it? Contact one of the project managers below with your thoughts.
