We believe that historic preservation should reflect the diversity of our history and communities, in order to recognize the contributions that underrepresented groups have made to our history and city. Currently, most of the City’s landmarks and historic districts are located in areas of the city which have traditionally had a greater awareness of planning and historic preservation processes. This project would explore the histories of neighborhoods in the east and southern ends of Tacoma and would make recommendations about the potential for National Register Historic District nominations, individual landmark nominations, or historic context statements in these areas, which have been less served by historic preservation programs. This project will deal with social equity, inclusion, and access through the creation of historic districts and landmarks. It will also deal with issues of economic disparity and cultural and ethnic diversity.
