During the COVID-19 pandemic, public meetings transitioned to a fully virtual format to comply with Washington State Public Health Department directives. Following the lifting of broad COVID-19 restrictions and capacity restrictions by Governor Inslee on June 30, the Port of Tacoma Commission will return to in-person meetings, starting with a study session on July 13, followed by a regular meeting on July 15. 

“We look forward to interacting with our community face-to-face as we transition to an in-person meeting format again,” said Dick Marzano, Port of Tacoma commission president. 

The Port Commission holds regular public meetings at noon on the third Thursday of each month at the Fabulich Center, Room 104, 3600 Port of Tacoma Road. Commission meetings will continue to be broadcast live on the Port’s website and are archived for on-demand viewing. The public may also attend the commission meetings by phone, dial-in information is posted to the Port’s commission meeting webpage in advance of each meeting.

Members of the public who wish to address the commission during a regularly scheduled meeting may do so in-person, by phone or by email. (Please see public comment procedures for more information.)

In-person attendees at commission meetings are reminded to be in compliance with current Washington State guidance regarding face coverings. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a face-covering while attending a commission meeting, or at Port facilities, while those who are not fully vaccinated are required to do so.
