The City received a grant from the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) to hire a consultant to prepare nomination forms for a select number of properties for listing on the local historic register. The intent is to assist property owners with the listing process and cover some of the expenses.
If you’re interested in listing your property on the local historic register, we would like to hear from you!
The process for applying for the nomination will be guided by the City with assistance from our consultant. This process would include the consultant working with you to complete the nomination form, performing site visits, capturing photographs for the nomination, and conducting archival research of your property. Following the completion of the application for nomination, city staff would present the nomination to the City’s Design Review and Historic Preservation Board for review and recommendation to City Council. City staff would then present the nomination and Board recommendation to Puyallup City Council, who makes the final decision.
If your property is listed on the local historic register, the property is then eligible for financial incentives which are further explained in our financial incentives brochure. Proposed
changes to the structure will also be required to be reviewed by the Design
Review and Historic Preservation Board and will require a receipt of a
Certificate of Appropriateness indicating that the Board has reviewed the
proposed changes for compliance with the required review criteria and certify
that the changes will not adversely affect the historic characteristics of the
