Of particular interest to those who live in the City of Puyallup
is the proposed development of a 187-acre site for warehouses. The
site is located just east of the Shaw Road extension bridge. The
applicant's preliminary site plan shows over 3 million square feet
of industrial (warehouse distribution and freight movement) space in
seven separate warehouses.

=== 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
- 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.
