To answer these and other questions, the City recently added interactive mapping services to our website. The first set of these new applications make it easy to look up your City Council district and the zoning of any property. You’re also now able to see whether a property has environmentally critical areas.
The City Council map application can be used to determine which district a resident lives in and who represents them on the Council. After a resident types their address in the search tab at the top right of the map, a pin drops showing which district they live in. Clicking on the shaded area of their district generates a window that provides the names of their specific elected Councilmembers and information on how to contact them. This service will help residents learn who their elected officials are, and make it easy for them to reach out with questions or comments.
The zoning application links to Pierce County’s Assessor page for any parcel, while the critical areas application links to Puyallup Municipal Code sections pertinent to floodplains and other environmentally sensitive land features. Persons wanting to know more about these interactive services can submit an inquiry on the maps page.
These new applications are easy to access and use from a phone, tablet or computer. Please check them out—and happy app’ing!
