Lacey History – this week 1977

June 27th, 2016 by Ken

St. Martin’s College has agreed to sell five acres of land to the City of Lacey for the purpose of constructing a new city hall and police station complex.   Earlier in the year, the college had agreed to lease the property to the city, but has reversed itself and is now willing to sell the land which sits at Sixth Avenue and College Street.   No purchase price has been announced.

The city has awarded a contract for the widening of Sleater Kinney  to five lanes.   The estimated cost is $237,000.   The city is uncertain when construction will start since it depends on federal funding.

The North Thurston School Board has agreed to place a $7.2 million bond issue before voters in the fall.   The money would be used to modernize North Thurston High School and Timberline High School, and set aside money for the construction of a vocational skills center.   Money would also be spent to build a sports complex on land located on North Thurston/Chinook property.
