In 1990, when Tacoma was just starting to redevelop its downtrodden downtown we were still six years from becoming an official city and hungering for the chance to control our own civic destiny. A quarter of a century later, Lakewood has emerged as a healthy, thriving city ready to undergo its own renaissance, a transformation that will make it one of the best cities in which to live and do business in our state. We have the momentum, the plan, the natural amenities, and the competitive advantages needed to get it done. We also have one more critical component - a healthy, business-friendly City Government that is ready to work with business owners to build something better together.
