Lacey history – this week 2006

July 25th, 2016 by Ken

The city’s efforts to make Sixth Avenue Lacey’s new Main Street, took a hit this week when city officials threw in the towel in its efforts to realign the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Sleater Kinney.    The proposal was to create a park on which a belltower would be located.

But, a federal judge ruled the city’s efforts to condemn the needed property was illegal, which meant the city would not be able to purchase the needed property.  Owners of the property at the corner refused to sell.

That decision also doomed the city’s efforts to use belltowers around the city to create a new image for Lacey.
