ARBOR DAY PLANTING EVENT
Take part in Puyallup's first annual Arbor Day Event! Volunteers can participate in a tree replanting along West Steward Avenue in celebration of Arbor Day on April 19th. The new trees will replace 44 street trees that were removed between 5th Street and 12th Street NW after they grew into overhead utility lines and caused sidewalk damage. The new trees have been carefully selected to fit the space, and they will bring beauty to our city streets without causing harm to power lines or sidewalks. Learn more!
UTILITY RATE CHANGE
In an effort to keep pace with rising costs of infrastructure repair and replacement, a utility rate adjustment will take effect on March 1st. The rate change will result in an increase of $6.43 for the average residential customer, per billing cycle starting in May 2014. Visit the Utility Billing page for 2014 utility rates and senior citizens/disability discount rates.

As part of the Puyallup River Bridge Replacement Project, WSDOT is scheduled to start construction of the new bridge in Spring 2014.
