Tacoma Schools Endorsed for Historic Designation

 

Landmark's Preservation Commission Endorses Proposition 1 Bond Measure

Last week the City of Tacoma's Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously voted to endorse Proposition 1 Bond Measure supporting improvement to neighborhood schools. The commission supports the bond because of the district's commitment to preservation, particularly through the recent designation of 6 historic schools, and their historic rehabilitation of Stadium High, Lincoln High, Jason Lee Middle School, Fern Hill, and Washington Elementary. 

The Landmarks Preservation Commission has also asked the school board to take "immediate action" to consider historic designation for Gault, McKinley, Hoyt and Oakland.

The Tacoma Public School District is one of the largest owners of historic buildings in the city, these neighborhood schools contribute to geographic identity and are a public resource.
