Dump trucks in Crystal Ridge (7/5/12)
The Board has received some questions from residents about Puyallup Highland's dump trucks driving through our neighborhood instead of using the Puyallup Highlands entrance on Shaw Road.  We met with the City and the developer to discuss this issue.  The Crystal Ridge streets are not private roads and are considered city streets.  There are no restrictions and trucks are allowed on our streets as they are legal to be driving on all city streets.  If the trucks show up before 7:00 am, please call the police and report them. If they are speeding or doing anything else illegal, please do the same.
