Earlier this year, the Lewis County Chapter of the Olympia Master Builders partnered with our friends at the Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of commerce, the Ports of Centralia and Chehalis, and the Industrial Park at TransAlta, to conduct a comprehensive review of the local permitting process in Lewis County and the Cities of Centralia and Chehalis. Similar reviews were completed in 2007 and 2009.
Our members and our local partners understand the critical role permitting plays in the economy, and we offered our own resources to solicit customer feedback and provide suggestions in order to ensure the process is as healthy as it possibly could be. It was not driven by a particular event or concern, but by a belief in the value of continuous improvement, helping the customer, and making Lewis County attractive to new business and development.
