    COVID 19 Updates


    COVID Information

    Greetings members of the La Center Community. The City of La Center is taking steps to contain the spread of coronavirus as well as preparing for further actions as they are needed. We understand and empathize with the growing anxiety and uncertainty of how, or when, the disease will evolve in our region and what the response will be if an outbreak does occur here in our City.

    The situation continues to change rapidly and our response will adjust accordingly. We will share additional information and updates as they are available. In the meantime, information on the state and regional response can be found on the following websites:

    Clark County Public Health: www.clark.wa.gov/public-health/novel-coronavirus

    Washington State Department of Health: www.doh.wa.gov

    Washington Governor Jay Inslee: www.governor.wa.gov

    We encourage everyone to consistently practice the hygienic and social distancing measures recommended by Clark County public health and the CDC. It is vitally important that we all stay informed, stay calm and work together to keep our community safe and healthy and reduce the spread of the virus in our region.

    The Brezee Creek Culvert Replacement & East 4th Street Widening Project


    Thank you for attending our virtual open house!
    Though we had hoped to meet with you in person, we are pleased to present this video overview of the project.

    As you learned, from now until next spring, the project team will continue to develop design plans for a new bridge, a Highland-Ivy traffic signal, and several corridor improvements. The City is currently seeking funds for construction, which is anticipated to begin in 2022 and last for about 18 months. We look forward to keeping you up to date on our progress!
