First Creek Action Plan

Speak up for East Tacoma’s First Creek!

First Creek shapes and defines its neighborhood. It’s history, natural beauty, clean air and water, and space for plants, animals, and people are precious assets. Over the years, the Creek has suffered impacts from development and neglect. This summer, community members are partnering with the City, the Puyallup Tribe and the Tacoma Housing Authority to make an action plan to restore and enhance First Creek! Share your knowledge, hopes and vision for the Creek at one of the upcoming workshops this summer:

Wednesday, July 27th, 7:00pm-8:30, Portland Avenue Community Center (3513 Portland Ave.). First Creek tour prior to meeting (5pm-7pm)—contact staff if you’d like to come along.

Wednesday, August 17th, 7:00pm to 8:30, Salishan Family Investment Center (FIC) (1724 E. 44th Street).

Also on August 17th: First Creek Youth Summit –between 10:00am and 3:00pm, at the Salishan FIC.

Other events will be scheduled soon. For more information or to get on our contact list, visit, or contact Elliott Barnett, City of Tacoma at (253) 591-5389,
