Knutson Farms Environmental Impact Statement Project



The City is leading the development of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a proposed warehousing development on the approximate 188-acre Knutson Farm property located in the city's Urban Growth Area (within unincorporated Pierce County). The EIS is an objective analysis of the likely environmental impacts of the proposal and measures to mitigate harmful impacts. For the most current information, please visit which contains detailed information about the project, FAQs, and other information. 

A number of private development proposals are currently pending in the vicinity of Shaw Road and East Pioneer, both within and immediately outside of the city of Puyallup’s corporate limits. Of particular interest to those who live in Puyallup is the proposed development of an approximately 188-acre site which, although outside of Puyallup’s city limits, is within its Urban Growth Area (UGA). According to the State’s Growth Management Act, property located within a jurisdiction’s UGA is anticipated to someday be annexed into that jurisdiction. This proposal, for development of a warehouse/industrial park complex comprising approximately 2.6 million square feet, is sited in the vicinity of 6719 134th  Avenue East. This project was undergoing permit review in unincorporated Pierce County. SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT UPDATES.
