We anticipate another successful year

Another great year is coming to an end. With the completion of many important city projects, 2016 was a successful year for Seward. Our city employees worked continuously on numerous projects, including beginning work on the Seward Marine Industrial Center breakwater project, building a new water tank, repairing the Snow River electric transmission line poles to prevent future disasters, Harbor dock replacement, and many other projects. The accomplishments of city employees have led to a safer and more prosperous community for all of us.

We are heading into another busy year, and we expect Seward to continue to build on our current momentum. The large scale road improvement project, that citizens approved a bond for, will be out for bid this February and work should begin this summer. The SMIC breakwater project is scheduled to wrap up this spring, which will continue to grow industry at SMIC. The Lowell Canyon Tunnel project has started and the Army Corp of Engineers will be studying the tunnel for alternatives and repairs. With input from the community, the City is currently developing our comprehensive plan that will provide direction for years to come. Predictions for tourism in 2017 are positive and we anticipate another successful year for our beautiful city.

Wishing all of you a prosperous and healthy New Year.
