Lacey history this week 1999

February 1st, 2016 by Ken

Bob Blume, the largest private property owner in Lacey, and the City of Lacey have reached agreement on a proposed re-development of South Sound Center.

Over the past several years, South Sound Center had deteriorated and Blume was reluctant to invest the money for redevelopment because of new environmental standards required since the mall was opened in 1966.

This week, the city and Blume signed an agreement which freed Blume from a city requirement that he build on-site stormwater treatment facilities.   In exchange, Blume agreed to pay the city $420,000 over the next 11 years.   That money would be earmarked for improvements to city stormwater facilities.
