We are very concerned about the impact of this project onvthe elementary schools on Shaw Road. As a retired school superintendent, Rick is particularly concerned about the safety of the students in those schools. We share that concern as the grandparents of a student at Shaw Elementary. The amount of truck traffic would make this a dangerous area.
The highway system can barely handle the traffic that occurs now during a large part of the day. Having 2000 more trucks per day would be a total nightmare. It would be worse than Seattle traffic and would be detrimental to the entire Puyallup area.
Seeking property outside of Puyallup would make more sense, where road conditions are adequate and safety can be a priority.
We are adamantly opposed to this project at the proposed site.
