Tacoma’s Mayor Victoria Woodards addressed the city’s ongoing issues in her 2023 State of the City Address on Thursday.
The topics of community safety, affordable housing, and homelessness were the focus of the speech.
Many business owners and residents are frustrated with the constant crime and homelessness, stating that it’s getting out of control.
They are looking for the mayor to put forward a plan that will make a difference, increase police force, and enforce stricter laws.
Homelessness is also a concern for the people of Tacoma, and they are hoping for a focus on resources to help those in need, including mental health support.
Mayor Woodards is expected to announce new actions to address these priorities in the city.
The people of Tacoma will be following closely to see what those plans will entail.
