City of Lakewood representatives will be making a presentation to the Tillicum Community on Thursday, June 6th, 6:30 P.M. at the Tillicum Community Center, 14916 Washington Ave. to give a traffic count (and an account) of traffic “flow.”
This is a picture (below) of traffic — thanks to the change in location of the Camp Murray gate that was supported by the City of Lakewood and opposed by Tillicum residents who shelled out $20,000 in court in an attempt to prevent it from happening that allows Washington Military Department employees to drive the entire length and interior of our town — backed up from Union Ave. at Exit #123 to nearly the former intersection at Spruce Street.
Those reading this who live in Tillicum — and who would occasionally like to leave — might want to attend that meeting and share your concerns with city officials. City Councilman Paul Bocchi, new council candidates, Lt. Steve Mauer from the Lakewood Police Department and Jeff Gonzales traffic engineer all are planning on being present.
Hopefully you will be too.
