On Wednesday, November 3, the Planning Commission will be discussing an ordiance that allows cottage housing, essentially a cluster of 1,500 sq. ft. houses built facing a common area.
This ordinance is not being pushed by citizens. It’s for developers. These cottage houses will not be for “young couples, empty-nesters, or single professional women,” it’ll be people looking for properties to rent. They will buy them, and rent them out.
They will become Puyallup’s version of low-income housing.
What are the top two complaints most people have? 1. Traffic/speeding and 2. crime. This ordinance will most likely have a negative effect on both.
Come to City Hall on Wednesday, November 3 at 7 p.m. to voice your opinion on this ordinance.
