Ruston Way Visioning Workshop & Open House

Monday, October 29 – Tuesday, October 30

We're working to create a vision for the future of Tacoma's waterfront – what it looks like, what it offers, and how it can be improved.

Whether you use Ruston Way regularly or think you might in the future, we will need to hear your voice and ideas.

Join us to help shape the future!

The public is invited and encouraged to participate in this Visioning Workshop that will ultimately help direct the future of Tacoma’s waterfront. Learn more about this initiative at

Both gatherings will be at Court House Square, 1102 A St., Tacoma. Everyone is invited to participate in both or either of the two sessions.
