Here are highlights from the May 17, 2022, joint work session between the City of Lacey and the NTPS School Board.
The city of Lacey provided an update on the anticipated Greg J Cuoio park and other anticipated park expansions. The park will include several amenities, including disc golf, numerous trails, a cross-country course, and a suspension bridge.
The city of Lacey also provided an update on the need for an expanded and improved Lacey police station. The work is still in the planning stages, with the recent formation of a Community Advisory Committee in April.
The meeting closed with a joint presentation on a possible Young Child and Family Center feasibility study. The center - a collaborative effort between NTPS, the City of Lacey, and the YMCA – will serve the increasing need for early learning access and family services. The proposed facility could serve up to 600 students annually, with room for parenting and nutrition classes, on-site medical facilities, a family-oriented pool, and more.
