About Lacey

Lacey is a city in Thurston County, Washington, United States. Established as a suburb of Olympia, Lacey's estimated population as of 2009 was 39,250, as compared to 43,900 for Olympia. Thurston County, which includes the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater, has a population of 239,355 as of the 2009 census.

History

Lacey was originally called Woodland after settlers Isaac and Catherine Wood, who claimed land there in 1853. The small settlements of Woodland and Chambers Creek consolidated into Lacey in the 1950s. Renamed for attorney and developer O.C. Lacey, the city of Lacey was officially incorporated on December 5, 1966. At the time, the main industries were cattle, milk, forest products, and retail. Lacey became a commuter town for Olympia and to some extent, Tacoma; in recent years, however, business developments, community groups, and population growth have led Lacey to develop into a city in its own right.

Business

Lacey sported one of the Northwest's first ever "indoor malls," South Sound Center. It has since been partially demolished and turned into an outdoor shopping center. Lacey now features a diverse array of businesses, ranging from retail to warehousing/distribution centers, a large retirement community, a major mushroom farm, and Weyerhaeuser's corrugated container facility.

As Lacey continues to grow, many businesses continue to feed into the city. Lacey now offers a Regal 16 Movie Theater, which is one of the largest theaters in the area. Other businesses that have recently come into Lacey include a state of the art laser tag and arcade center; Laser Fun Zone. LA Fitness, Best Buy, Costco, The Home Depot, Lowe's, and many strip malls and market squares. There is also speculation that NFL Washington Redskins Fullback Mike Sellers, a North Thurston High School alumni, may seek to build a multi-sport event center or football dome in Hawks Prairie, which could attract national competitions.

Gateway Project

Lacey is also experiencing a building boom on its northern border. The area known as Hawks Prairie has recently exploded with commercial and residential development. It is currently the site of a planned "commercial" core and high-rise district: the "Gateway Project" started in October 2007, when the major sports & outdoor store Cabela's was built in the Hawks Prairie District.This is the first of several new developments planned in this area. According to Lacey's former mayor Virgil Clarkson, "At build-out, we expect the 400-acre Gateway project to yield $57 million in state and local tax revenue annually and create 8,000 new jobs."  The Gateway Project is being built along I-5 Southbound. The Gateway Project is expected to create a downtown area for Lacey, complete with three residential towers in the northernmost border of the project which will potentially reach a height of thirty stories each, and which will feature retail and office space on the lower floors, with residential, high-class condos in the upper floors. In addition, another library is being planned, as is a performing arts center, a new fire station, and a fitness center as well. Several plazas, strip malls, and commercial buildings may also be constructed in this region. Furthermore, a farmers' market will likely established in this district. Also, it is expected that 7,000 housing units will be built when the project is completed in 2020, increasing the population of Lacey by around 20,000 people, and potentially making it the largest city in the South Puget Sound area. Also, the Gateway Project will be built with the highest possible "green" approval rating handed out by the NEA, causing the Gateway Project to have a minor carbon footprint. 10% of the 250 acres that are being developed will be open, green spaces; such as parks, ponds, and trails.

Ecology

Lacey was the twelfth city to be designated an official “Green Power Community” by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its use of renewable energy sources; 5% of its total energy use comes from green power sources. It is working to meet its Alternative Energy Initiative, which includes "using 100 percent green electrical energy in all of its municipal buildings, parks, utilities, and 3,000 streetlights and traffic signals; providing electric vehicle charging stations to visitors and employees at its city hall and library campus; and initiating conversion of its municipal fleet to energy efficient vehicles powered by electricity, hybrid technology, and 80/20 biofuel." In 2009, Lacey's Alternative Energy Fair was honored with the Award of Excellence for Events, Fairs, and Festivals by the Washington Recreation and Park Association. Lacey has received the "Tree City, USA" designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation for the past eighteen years.
