The princesses of the 2016 Daffodil Festival Royal Court introduced themselves to the council, and invited everyone to join them for their Queen's Coronation on Sunday, April 3, and for the 2016 Daffodil Parade on Saturday, April 9.

 

PUBLIC COMMENT

The only comment came from a representative of the downtown Tacoma BIA, speaking in favor of its renewal, recounting recent accomplishments, and mentioning a few priorities for the next year. Graffiti in the BIA is down, and rates are fairly steady for members, with only a modest increase. Looking ahead, the BIA will be encouraging City efforts to address homelessness. Also, although the BIA funding that keeps the Link light rail free comes to an end this September, the representative said they BIA will continue to be a partner with Sound Transit and the City of Tacoma, and supports keeping it free to ride, at least until the extension is complete.
