Puyallup: A Tree City USA

Did you know that if you live in Puyallup, you live in a Tree City USA? Tree City USA is a designation awarded by the Arbor Day Foundation to communities which demonstrate a commitment to caring for and managing their urban forest. Puyallup was first recognized as a Tree City USA in 2014, and continues to plant and nurture trees and acknowledge their importance to the community.

On Saturday, April 4th, Puyallup will celebrate Arbor Day with a tree planting event at Bradley Lake Park. The public is invited to help plant new trees that will enhance one of the city’s most popular parks. The event will also include the planting of a special heritage tree to commemorate Puyallup’s Quasquicentennial, or 125th Anniversary. The Washington State Department of Natural Resources will present Puyallup with its second Tree City USA award at the event in recognition of the city’s continuing efforts to manage its urban forest. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, starting at 9:00 a.m.

New this year to Puyallup’s urban forestry efforts is the city’s Heritage Tree program, which formally recognizes and protects notable trees in the hope of preserving them for future generations. This program, which reviews and approves nominations of trees for inclusion on the city’s heritage tree registry, is entirely voluntary for private property owners.

More information on trees in the city and links to resources for general tree care can be found here: Trees in Puyallup.

In honor of those who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States, the City of Puyallup has announced a Veteran’s Memorial Brick Program. Citizens may purchase bricks to be engraved and placed at the Puyallup Veterans Memorial in Pioneer Park. View order form and information about the Veteran's Memorial. If you would like to have a brick engraved in time for this year's Memorial Day, please submit your order by Friday, April 17.

The City of Puyallup is celebrating a special birthday this year--its 125th! The celebration will kick off with the planting of a commemorative heritage tree in Bradley Lake Park on Arbor Day, April 4th. Other events and festivities will continue in the following months, leading up to the main event on August 19th.

A new "Budget in Brief" document has been prepared for those seeking important yet distilled information on the City's 2015 Budget. The Budget in Brief explains the process used to approve the budget and includes sections on revenue sources and how all funds are spent. If you've ever wondered exactly where your property taxes go, you can find the answer to this question--and many others--in the Budget in Brief.

On February 23, the City's Water Division will start work to replace the water main on 3rd St NE. Construction activity will begin on the north side of 5th Avenue NE and continue north to 608 3rd Street NE. The replacement should be completed by March 13.
