Fort Steilacoom Park Lease Transfer Finalized

It’s official: the City of Lakewood now holds the lease for one of the biggest and most popular parks in the South Sound.

Last week, the City assumed control of the lease of Fort Steilacoom Park, which is owned by the State of Washington. The state, Pierce County and the City had to approve the agreement. The Lakewood City Council voted to assume control of the lease in December, and the transfer between Pierce County and the City was finalized last week.

Garbage Collection Service Rate Increase

On March 1, the service rates for providing garbage collection within the City will increase. Under the terms of the City’s service contract, one automatic adjustment of the rates per year is allowed. The adjustment is limited to only the year-to-year change in the Consumer Price Index for the Seattle-Tacoma area, and the year-to-year change in the disposal fee charged at the landfill.

For this last year the change in the Consumer Price Index was 1.002 percent while the disposal fee charge increased 1.678 percent. As a result the new monthly service rate for a residential customer with recycling and a 65-gallon “toter” with weekly service will now be $32.65 versus $32.23.

Gas Main Work at Bridgeport/Custer

Puget Sound Energy’s contractor will be doing final restoration work at the Bridgeport/Custer intersection from February 11 to February 13 as part of PSE’s gas main replacement project. Work is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.

Lakewood Sends Officers To Seahawks Parade

If you watched this week’s Seahawks parade and noticed a few familiar uniforms – other than the Seahawks' – your eyes probably weren’t playing tricks on you.

Lakewood sent six of its officers to assist with the parade. Seattle Police reached out to the City and asked for assistance from our bicycle unit. We agreed and sent six of our bike officers to lend a hand. Most (if not all) of the six were already working that day and are in specialized assignments, so there was minimal cost to the City.

Crime Falls in 2013

Year-end crime statistics from 2013 show an overall dip of 8 percent in the City of Lakewood, a direct result of the work of its Police Department and indication that the community continues to be a safe place to live.

“We continue to work hand-in-hand with citizens and the business community to make Lakewood a better, safer place,” Police Chief Bret Farrar said. “It’s something we’ve done for the better part of a decade, now.”

The City saw nearly a 7-percent drop in person crimes – including a 5-percent drop in total assaults - as well as a 9-percent drop in property crimes. The latter includes double-digit reductions, percentage-wise, in burglaries and robberies.

The results, which are compiled by the National Incident-Based Reporting System, also show the Police Department responded to incidents quicker. In 2013, the average amount of time it took to respond to calls for service was down across the board, including a reduction of more than 2 minutes for “Priority 3” calls, which account for a majority of calls received.

More statistics: Lakewood responded to 100 fewer traffic accidents in 2013 than the prior year – a drop of 10 percent and a testament to the effectiveness of the City’s photo enforcement program. Police also had to make 269 fewer traffic stops from the previous year, a dip of almost 20 percent.

Lakewood Police Show Seahawks Spirit, Gratitude

Lakewood Police showed its brand of Seattle Seahawks spirit Thursday, and it meant much more than simply hoping the team tops the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XVLIII.
Almost 50 blue-and-green-clad members of the department gathered on their front doorstep to show their support for the Hawks, who play Sunday in New Jersey for the Lombardi Trophy.
As Chief Bret Farrar explained, the outpouring of 12th Man spirit was as much gratitude as it was support. When four of Lakewood's officers were murdered in November 2009, the Seahawks organization went out of its way to welcome the department, he said.
The team brought in and honored the fallen officers' families and members of the department during a game, Farrar said.
"We thought, in return for the kindness they showed us, we would show, as a department, our support for the Seattle Seahawks," Farrar said.
Great stuff. Go Hawks.

Don’t Drink & Drive This Super Bowl

On Sunday, legions of Seahawk fans will watch Super Bowl XVLIII between Seattle and Denver.

But while Lakewood and the Northwest could be celebrating the team’s first NFL title, the City of Lakewood would like to remind revelers about the dangers of drinking and driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that more than one-third of fatality crashes on Super Bowl Sunday are related to alcohol.

In Washington , drivers arrested and convicted for driving drunk face up to a year in jail for a first-time offense, a suspended license for up to a year, a fine of up to $5,000 and other penalties.

With that in mind, Lakewood Police offered some reminders for fans who will be drinking while watching the big game:

  • Know your limits
  • Don’t drink and drive
  • Call a friend or taxi
  • Have a designated driver
  • Consider spending the night wherever you watch

“We know people will be watching the game and having a good time,” Lakewood Police Lt. Chris Lawler said. “But if drivers have had too much to drink, it’s not worth it to get behind the wheel. We don’t want to spoil the fun, but we want people to be safe.”

“Go Hawks,” he added.

Legislative Youth Action Day

The Lakewood Youth Council attended this workshop & training day held in Olympia this past Sunday. The event was sponsored by the Washington State Legislative Youth Advisory Council and World Vision. It was a full day and evening of speakers, tours, workshops and group presentations geared to provide the attending youth groups the tools they require to advocate for their communities. One of the highlights of the day included Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn speaking on the importance of creating relationships to be successful. A guided tour of the legislative building explaining the history, fixtures and “secret” staircases was also provided to all the participants.

South Sound Magazines “3 To See” this weekend includes Lakewood Playhouse’s ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

The 1962 original play about a middle age couple struggling to find middle ground has been reinvented into a “outside of the box” presentation. When this dysfunctional couple invites another young couple over, cocktails are joined with some hilarious crossfire. The play will start at noon this Sunday so you can catch the Super Bowl after the show. General admission is $25.

Toastmasters International Week

Next week is Toastmasters International Week, as proclaimed by Mayor Don Anderson for the City of Lakewood on January 21, 2014.

Economic Development Activity

The much anticipated Hobby Lobby is expected to open in about a month! Also opening soon is the new Jack-in-the-Box, Tillicum on Union Ave. Grand opening is scheduled for March 3rd. Economic Development team met with local businesses in the finance and transportation/warehousing industries. A common theme is that finally improved profits have been realized for 2011/2012 and into 2013. Businesses with good managers, good customer service that have been willing to make the hard decisions have weathered the storm. According to one banking institution many clients are actually beginning to bring back raises, bonuses and are hiring. Construction is coming back. We also met with property owners looking to develop/redevelop land in the Springbrook area.

TRCVB Retreat

Ellie Chambers Grady, City Economic Development Manager and Tacoma Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau (TRCVB) board member attended a board retreat this week.

City Shows Support For Kearse, Seahawks

Passers-by to Lakewood City Hall might have noticed that the City’s headquarters is sporting some blue-and-green swag.

To show its support for the Seattle Seahawks, the City of Lakewood is flying a 12th Man flag . It also posted a special message on its third floor window to support Seahawks wide receiver and Lakewood native Jermaine Kearse, who grew up in Lakewood and attended school in the Clover Park School District.

The City first Tweeted a photo of Kearse’s message Wednesday night, and since then it has been “Favorited” 52 times and “Retweeted” 26 times, including by the player himself.

“When you’re the hometown of a key player on a team that’s on the cusp of winning it all, there’s plenty of reason to boast,” said Brent Champaco, Communications Manager for the City of Lakewood. “Jermaine is a local guy who attended our schools and succeeded in our community. He’s succeeding on a much bigger stage now, but you can tell he doesn’t forget his roots.”

“He’s such a great role model for Lakewood. We all look up to him. We’re all so proud of him.”

I-5 Traffic Pattern Study

Over the next two weeks, crews will study traffic patterns between Interstate 5 interchanges, Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the greater Lakewood area.

But they aren’t going to use traffic-counting devices. No one is going to be standing on a corner counting cars, either.

As part of an “Origin-Destination” study being conducted by the Washington State Department of Transportation – which is part of a larger I-5 JBLM Interchange Justification Report (IJR) - crews will be installing solar-powered devices that can pick up Bluetooth signals and track the routes of drivers.

Those devices will track how many vehicles use I-5 to access JBLM and surrounding areas. That data will help determine the South Sound’s transportation future in terms of what improvements are needed in one of the most congested regions in the state.

Click here to read more about the project and the device that will be used to track traffic patterns.

Business Showcase: Davinci Salon and Spa

The City of Lakewood released a new Business Showcase on its website this week featuring Davinci Salon and Spa. It features the story behind owner Sunny Galaviz, who opened the spa a year ago.

Economic Development

Projects, projects and more projects

Economic Development currently has over 40 projects in the works here in Lakewood representing expansions and potential new businesses that will provide approximately 900 new jobs!

While most of these jobs are in the hospitality and food services sector, we’ve seen a lot of activity with construction, auto sales and repair expansions, and health care related businesses. There continues to be a real interest by new restaurants to enter our market. Additionally, industrial lands and buildings for manufacturing, transportation, warehousing and distribution are in demand. Because Lakewood is centrally located adjacent to I-5 in close proximity to the Port of Tacoma, SeaTac, JBLM, and just 40 minutes from I-90, we expect to see more companies attracted to our industrial lands. This includes the Lakewood Industrial Business Park (IBP) that will construct a 100,000 sf and a 50,000 sf building this year and the new Woodbrook IBP with 150 acres.

Did you know that our Lakewood IBP has over 2.5 million square feet of leasable industrial space? The park currently has 64 businesses and approximately 1,250 employees making it the fourth largest for-profit employer in Pierce County.
