Known as "The City of Destiny", the city of Tacoma and its government continue to build on urban planning projects in hopes of making the town a true destination city. Amongst the district roadway improvements, the extension of the lightrail, and the renovation project passed for the Tacoma Dome, the developers are in full flux. The funding has been passed and the construction in motion -- but what about the communities? This research aims to gauge the tensions that emerge within the relationship of community engagement and urban planning.
