Local Infrastructure Financing Tool (LIFT)

The City of Puyallup was one of three cities to receive a state Local Infrastructure Financing Tool (LIFT) grant in 2008. The grant provides $1 million a year for 25 years to improve infrastructure in the city's Revenue Development Area. The City's proposal outlines three areas of infrastructure improvement: Transit Oriented Development (TOD), transit and trail links between the city's two Urban Growth centers, and improved communication networks to allow for the rapid exchange of information.

A Bus Rapid Transit project is a proposal under the LIFT plan. Nicknamed "EZRA" for Easy Rider Access, it would provide frequent transit service along the Meridian Corridor. The city is beginning to study how a Bus Rapid Transit project would work in Puyallup.
