Tip Sheets

This page contains links to the City’s Tip Sheets – user-friendly informational handouts that respond to some of the more common questions applicants might have.

Tip Sheets summarize code requirements and permit processes, and provide an overview of what needs to be done for a successful project. While the explanations are thorough, these Tip Sheets should not substitute for a reading of the Tacoma Municipal Code (TMC) and a conversation with a Planning and Development Services staff member.
