Zoo/Trek Authority Meeting

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 18
Time: 5:30 pm
Location:
Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

The Zoo/Trek Authority was established in 2001 to oversee disbursement of sales tax revenue to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. In 2000, Pierce County voters approved a one-tenth-of-a-cent increase in the local sales tax rate to support the Zoo, Northwest Trek and parks.

One-half of these new local revenues go to Point Defiance Zoo and Northwest Trek. The other half is divided among park systems throughout Pierce County.

The ZTA is composed of seven elected officials appointed by city and county councils as follows:

  • Pierce County Council: 3 members
  • Tacoma City Council: 2 members
  • Other Pierce County cities/towns: 2 members

The ZTA is charged with approving the biennial operating budgets for Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium and Northwest Trek prior to final adoption by the Metro Parks Tacoma Board of Commissioners.
