Run from the Cops! 5K

Run from the Cops 5K Fun Run was a night time fundraising run that took place Saturday, September 28th in Puyallup. The event was hosted by Puyallup Police Department and all proceeds collected benefit Special Olympics Washington.  Participants needed to cross the finish line in 30 minutes or less to avoid being corralled into the “Special Olympics Slammer” and ticketed for not being able to out run the cops!  Walkers, runners, kids and costumes were welcome! Here's a photo of team "Fife's Felons" after they completed the run.

Safe Street of the Week

Due to an increase in number of collisions, along with reports of speeding on the newly widened 70th Avenue, we have dedicated it as this week's Safe Street Of The Week. The posted speed limit is 35 mph. Enforcement will occur between 20th Street E. and N. Levee Road. Thank you for helping us keep Fife streets safe!

What an upgrade!

Sidewalk improvements on 54th Ave. are coming along nicely! The new asphalt is great too! The new sidewalk ramps are ADA compliant and improve pedestrian safety, in turn heightening the walkability of Fife.
