Longtime area residents have spent the past week or so explaining to me why the structure that once housed Weyerhaeuser's corporate headquarters is so important to this city.
Community Events, August 2016
Q: Mr. Federal Way, have any final thoughts on the Olympics? Best in show, worst?
We live in a great community, and I am always positive and enthusiastic about Federal Way's history and potential. Sometimes that enthusiasm may get the best of me, which was the case a few days ago when I made the statement calling the proposed developments on the Industrial Realty Group property (the former Weyerhaeuser property) a positive development for our community. I was speaking in terms of job growth and investment in Federal Way.
Politics, thou art a heartless and unforgiving mistress. Mayor Jim Ferrell can attest.
Q: Mr. Federal Way, I live not far from the former Weyerhaeuser campus and am opposed to the seafood processing plant on 19 acres of that property. I have a neighbor, not far from me, who's also expressed their thoughts with a sign in their yard that says "NO SEAFOOD PLANT." But I want your thoughts on this, and I'm wondering if there are other locals that feel the way my neighbor and I do.
