The East Side and South Tacoma areas have been selected as the next neighborhoods for the city’s Community-based Services program.
The city announced the selection this morning. Those areas include the Dometop, Ling LAWG(Lincoln Area Watch Group), Lincoln South and Whitman neighborhoods.
The area will get the dedicated attention of a code enforcement officer, a Tacoma police community liaison officer and a program development specialist. Other city services also will be ready to help.
The city team will look to partner with the community to reduce crime, eliminate blight and increase community education and involvement.
City officials are planning a kickoff meeting in the new area June 2. Community cleanups will take place in June, July and August.
This will be the fifth CBS area in the city.
