Public hearing Jan. 22 considers revised boundary in Comprehensive Scheme of Harbor Improvements

The Port of Tacoma Commission encourages people to attend a public hearing at its Jan. 22 meeting to consider revisions to the Port's Comprehensive Scheme of Harbor Improvements (CSHI). The CSHI, which outlines the boundary for Port capital improvements, is updated and amended periodically to reflect areas in which the Port might consider investing capital to support its economic development mission.

The Port intends to divest itself of the 745-acre property it owns in Thurston County. The proposed revisions call for the Maytown property to be removed from the CSHI upon the successful completion of that property's divestiture.

Commission meetings are held at noon in Room 104 of The Fabulich Center, 3600 Port of Tacoma Road, Tacoma. Meetings are streamed live on the web and are archived for future viewing.
