The Curse of Tollefson Plaza
It would seem that Downtown Tacoma’s award winning public space, Tollefson Plaza, is once again without management. The Chamber announced yesterday that it was walking away from its contract with the City after 18 months. From the BIA Blog:
… the recent and current economic situation has made it extremely difficult to secure adequate funding and sponsorships to fully underwrite staffing and appropriate marketing for meaningful programming of the Plaza.
Unfortunately, those challenging economic conditions and Plaza design issues have combined to thwart the Chamber’s ambitions to provide active management and programming for Tollefson Plaza. As a result, the Chamber has requested to be released from its license agreement with the City of Tacoma.
Who’s up for a challenge?
