Puyallup citizens can weigh in next week on whether the city should surplus a building that’s home to two well-known local nonprofits.

A public hearing is scheduled during Tuesday’s City Council meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 333 S. Meridian.

The hearing is a step in the process of putting the Community Resource Center up for sale – an action the council has expressed interest in exploring.

The two-story, roughly 4,500-square-foot building today is home to the Puyallup Main Street Association and the Daffodil Festival, among some other occupants. The city bought it in about 1999 and for a time used it as the site of City Council meetings. But those sessions now are held at the five-story City Hall, which opened about four years ago.
