Lacey history this week 1976

Karen Fraser, the city’s first female mayor, presided over her first city council meeting.   Fraser was selected by the Lacey City Council to represent them as mayor by a 5-1-1 vote.  Others receiving votes for mayor were Bill Bush and Richard Johnson.

Annexation talks continued this week with Tanglewilde and Thompson Place residents as the city’s Annexation Committee scheduled two meetings in the affected areas.   One major issue of concern for the city was policing and public safety, as the number of saunas located along Martin Way continue to grow.

A 66-acre housing development has drawn fire from property owners.   The planned development will be at the old Lacey racetrack.   Home owners in the Homann addition adjacent to the racetrack are concerned about the impact of the housing development on schools.
