Great place to live, but cost of living here is getting high

I've read some of the other reviews of Puyallup, and I have to say I do not agree with most of them. They do have a lot of churches here, and I wouldn't say they are all spiritually dead. There are always some that may try to be politically correct because they don't want to alienate the LBGT community, but there are others that choose to just speak the truth from the Word. I've been to a church here where the pastor stated his opinion as if were facts taken directly from the Bible, and I've been to a few churches where is there is something left to interpretation, the pastor chooses to state his opinion as just that, his opinion of what it means. There is plenty of shopping available here. We have South Hill Mall, and we have a couple of strip malls, a couple of WalMarts and a couple of Targets. Violent crime is very low here, but property crime can be a problem. When we first moved into our home, we had a break in. Fortunately they didn't get much because I happened to have my alarm set pretty much right for the time they broke in. We bought an alarm for the house and haven't had a problem in the three years since then. The people here may seem distant or disinterested, but I contribute that to what is commonly known as the "Seattle Freeze". People don't mean to be rude or unsocial, they're just usually so involved in whatever they're doing they tend to ignore their surroundings. We've lived in this neighborhood for a little over four years, and we've hardly ever talked with our neighbors other than a quick hello if we happen to be outside at the same time. I can't really speak much for the nightlife as I am not really into that scene. If you love coffee, you're in the right place as there are coffee stands on almost every block of the main roads here: Canyon and Meridian.

While in the company of a very honorable puyallup native i myself have witnessed many ileagle actions taken by the community,higher authority,and alson teachers and other general local buisjess in the Sunrise area of Puyallup WA. Ive been told that there is a plan construed by Jeramy Funk, Kim Saxon, and Tim Mygon . And lots of YMCA members and staff included out of Mel korums YMCA.. I am only one of several whiteness to this massive invasion of personal space and civil rights just to scratch the surface. The huge contingentcy of gypsies, and other eastern european ethnicities that involve the harassment by vehicle prowling to stalking personally in public areas. Ive delt with this harrasmrnt only on a small scale compared to my coligue. All of these strange incidents are all recorded and taped in very detailed order.. All of this started in Rebeca Ridege, and SouthWood and north and south Sunrise and Mornigview. All of these ver so called dream spots have all made me scared for my own self being and the health and being of my coligue..Iam bring this to everyones attention to prove to you that this is real.....!

I have lived in or around Puyallup for most of my life and have never experienced the extreme negativity being spoken by PENNY13. There are multiple different churches in and around Puyallup for those who are looking for a church home. I have attended many of them and have never experienced any of them that are spiritually dead. When I attended high school there I think I experienced 2 pregnant teenagers at my highschool total so I'm not sure where that label came from either. I have rented multiple apartments in the south hill area and have never experienced intrusive management/staff. I can't personally say that I've dealt with any legal cases but I have never heard any negative experiences from those I know who have. My take is that Puyallup is a great community to live in especially when compared to some of the other surrounding south sound communities. There is not a lot in the way of nightlife for the single folks but there are nearby bars/restaurants that you can frequent plus nearby movie theaters. Lots of restuarants to choose from throughout both downtown and southhill area of Puyallup. There is a mall plus multiple different shopping centers on south hill and multiple different grocers to choose from. For families with kids there are local activities neaby whether it be skating, bowling, biking, or playing baseball in the park. My favorities part about living in Puyallup is the sense of community they build through local events. The summer is full of fun with a weekly farmers market, concerts and movies in the park and more. Traffic on south hill can be bad at times and I'm sure there are the few bad seeds in the city, as there would be in any, but I definitely would not peg the city to blame for those instances/people as it is definitely not the norm and "nightmare" is not an appropriate label.

I WAS RAISED A GOD-FEARING CHRISTIAN WITH RESPECT FOR THE GOLDEN RULE AND MY FELLOW MAN. FROM THE DAY I STARTED WORKING AFTER HIGHSCHOOL TO RECENT; I HAVE ENCOUNTERED NOTHING BUT CUT-THROAT, BAD PEOPLE IN PUYALLUP. THEY SEEK NOTHING BUT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANYONE THEY CAN, DEFRAUD THEM, FORCE THEM INTO BANKRUPTCY (AFTER THEY HIT-RUN), THE POLICE NEVER GET INVOLVED AND ARE CORRUPT(HAD ONE INTENTIONALLY THROW AWAY EVIDENCE AND SAID THEY SAW SOMETHING THEY DID NOT.) EITHER THEY ARE CORRUPT OR NUTS? PLAN ON GETTING INTO CAR ACCIDENTS AROUND PUYALLUP, PEOPLE ACT LIKE RAMMING PEOPLE AT RUSH-HOUR IS OK AND YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT TO GET COMPENSATION FOR THEIR DESTROYING YOUR CAR. HAVE HAD TO SUE THREE YRS AND GOING BECAUSE THE PUYALLUP TRASH REFUSE TO 'PAY' FOR WHAT THEY DO! THE CHURCHES ARE SPIRITUALLY DEAD AND FOLLOW FALSE CONCEPTS OF GOD'S WORD. THEY ARE COMPLETE HIPOCRITES, AND REFUSE TO DEFEND THEIR BRETHEREN WHEN THE NEED ARISES. THEIR BELIEF IS TO MAINTAIN POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AT ALL COSTS. THE MANAGERS IN PUYALLUP, APARTMENTS, ECT; BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO ENTER ILLEGALLY, AND FORCE TENANTS TO LIVE UNDER THEIR TYRANNICAL ROLE-PLAYING. ALL THE APARTMENTS I HAVE LIVED IN ARE ALL LIKE THIS. I DIRECTLY CORRESPONDS TO THE 'TYPE' OF MENTALITY OF THE PEOPLE IN PUYALLUP. ALL THE TEENAGERS HERE ARE ALL PREGNANT. THEY ARE ALL ON THE ROAD TO WELFARE AND HAVE NO HIGHER GOALS AND EXPECTATIONS OTHER THAN TO BE PREGNANT THE EARLIER THE BETTER! THE BEST THEIR CHURCHES DO HERE, IS TO HAVE A LOCAL FOOD BANK TO GIVE FOLLOWER'S OF CHRIST ROTTEN OLD FOOD. I HAVE BEEN FORCED INTO BANKRUPTCY THREE TIMES NOW DUE TO THE BUSINESS IN PUYALLUP SCREWING ME OVER. PLAN ON BEING FORCED TO SUE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO LET EVERYONE AROUND PUYALLUP TREAD ON YOU. IT IS THE WORSE PLACE I HAVE EVER BEEN.
