The SSMCP is an innovative and flexible partnership uniquely positioned to provide regional leadership to bridge

South Sound region.

ARMY DOWNSIZING LISTENING SESSION:  On January 21, 2015, the Army held a public listening session related to potential reduction of up to 11,000 active duty and civilian contractors at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM.)   Over 500 people attended the Army listening session and 67 people testified in person, including WA Governor Jay Inslee, Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy, Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero, Mayors and Council members from Lacey, Lakewood, Yelm, University Place, DuPont, Olympia, Orting, and many more.  The event ran an hour longer than scheduled due to the large turnout.

The Army will announce its decision of whether JBLM will be downsized by summer 2015.  Again, thank you for showing your support for and concern about JBLM!
