City of Puyallup


A big birthday calls for a big celebration, and Puyallup will soon celebrate its 125th Anniversary with a family-friendly event that is sure to have something for everyone.

We’ll start with balloons and end with cake, but we’ll also have live music, entertaining speakers and special guests including representatives from the Puyallup Tribe of Indians. The City’s first mayor, Ezra Meeker, will make a special appearance and share his predictions for the future of Puyallup (the future, of course, being relative!).

In addition to the replica covered wagon, historic photographs and artifacts will be displayed from the Washington State Fair, the Puyallup School District, Good Samaritan Hospital, the Daffodil Festival and the Puyallup Police Department. A free raffle will give attendees the chance to win items donated by South Hill Mall, Absher Construction, The Fair, Mel Korum YMCA and Tiffany’s Skate Inn.

In association with the event, the Puyallup Historical Society will establish a temporary satellite museum on the ground floor of City Hall. The “Little Museum” will operate from Aug. 15th through the 23rd and admission will be free. The Historical Society has planned an entire week’s worth of activities and events to celebrate the Meeker Mansion’s own Quasquicentennial.

The City of Puyallup was founded in 1890 and now’s the time to gather together to pay homage to our history and celebrate our 125-year-old roots and sustaining pioneer spirit!

Community Celebration:
Wednesday, August 19th
6:00 p.m.
Pioneer Park Pavilion

As we head into another few days of elevated temperatures, folks are encouraged to avoid the sun as much as possible, stay hydrated, and check on elderly neighbors. Take special care to not leave children or pets unattended in cars as the interior temperature can quickly become deadly. Finally, take full advantage of cooler air in public buildings such as local libraries, malls and movie theaters. For more information on how to avoid heat-related illnesses visit the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

From July 30th to August 3rd, numerous streets around the city will receive important maintenance treatment in the form of chip sealing. Chip sealing is a relatively inexpensive way to extend the life of a road for 10 to 12 years. Want to know more? Here's a list of streets and the planned schedule.

WSDOT will close the Puyallup River bridge at SR-167 from 8 pm Friday, August 7th through 5 am Monday, August 10th to accommodate the relocation of the steel truss bridge. A public viewing area will be established near Fred Meyer. More information including detour routes is available here

This summer, South Meridian will be getting new pavement and markings, upgraded pedestrian signals and access ramps, and improved traffic signal timing operations. At times, construction will necessitate reducing traffic to one lane in each direction between 15th and 31st Avenues SE; detour routes will be offered. Early morning and nighttime work will start on August 2nd.

The City invites proposals from qualified firms to provide services for negotiating collective bargaining agreements. Proposals are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 24th.
