=== EMAILS Received ===========================


 -  7/20/16 - Email received from a CR resident


I have contacted our city council on the Shaw road widening and on the Van Leitrop project. I am in the process of outlining an email to Pierce county transportation engineering. I see no one has mentioned the fact that these warehouse's will I'm sure be using the railroad spur that crosses Shaw. This will have a devastating effect on our ability to come and go. As will these warehouse's using 134th with the main line passing through there. Has anybody considered these roadblocks?



 -  7/19/16 - Email received from a CR resident


This week, in response to the City of Puyallup’s notice of the proposed warehouse mega-complex development coming to our area (Knutson Farms, Inc land), I expressed my concerns to Pierce County regarding how this development will significantly impact our local traffic on Shaw Road, already an overcrowded arterial. In a reply to my email, Pierce County’s Development Engineer confirmed today that Pierce County has NO PLANS to expand traffic capacity on the roads adjacent to the proposed warehouse complex (187-acre mega-complex site). See attached reply.

Also enclosed is Pierce County’s comments to a Traffic Impact Assessment on the roads around the proposed mega-complex. In this report, Pierce County states that this development will add over 6,700 additional DAILY trips to 134th Avenue East (which, by proximity, will spill onto Pioneer Road and toward the Shaw Rd / Pioneer Intersection).

Please inform CR Homeowners that a PUBLIC HEARING will be held by the City of Puyallup on this issue (date, time, location to be determined) and urge attendance at this meeting since this development is forecasted to have a major impact on our surrounding roads and traffic flow.

Please refer to attached documentation & report.
