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 proposed revisions call for expanding the CSHI boundary to include industrial areas around Fife, Milton, Edgewood and Puyallup to support the proposed extension of State Route 167 from Puyallup to the Port of Tacoma and the rail line that follows Pioneer Way in East Pierce County.

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.
