Lacey history – this week 1977

September 14th, 2016 by Ken

Lacey’s 10-year search for a new city hall site came to an end this week when it was announced that the city has purchased five acres of  property from St. Martin’s College.  The city and the college signed an agreement this week to pay $60,000 for the property located on College Street.   Two modular units will be moved to the property in the first phase.   The second phase calls for the construction of a 2600 sq ft building.   Estimated cost for the new building is $390,000.   The project will be paid through councilmatic bonds.

The city has put off a proposal to construct a sign on I-5 to point the way to Panorama City.   That request was made by Panorama president Jack Lewis.   After St. Martin’s and South Sound Center also expressed an interest, the city decided to postpone any action concerned that promoting three businesses would leave other Lacey businesses out in the cold.
