Port of Seattle’s public meeting on SAMP will be at Highline College Mon., Sept. 10

The Port of Seattle will be holding a Public Meeting on its ‘Sustainable Airport Master Plan’ (SAMP) at Highline College on Monday, Sept. 10, and all residents who have concerns about increased expansion, airport noise, pollution and other issues should attend.

This free, open meeting will run from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Highline College Student Union building.

The SAMP is the blueprint for Airport growth through 2027. Sea-Tac has added 97,000 overflights in the last four years – that’s now 1,140 per day, 416,000 annually. The SAMP proposes (i) no limit on full-time use of the Third-Runway, (ii) another 80,000 annual “Near Term” flights, and (iii) undefined “Phase 2” growth. Scoping ends September 28th.

  • How noisy will it become in Des Moines?
  • What are the risks to our health and the environment?
  • How does the Sustainable Airport Master Plan (SAMP) impact crime, property values, environmental justice, and our quality of life?
  • What health and mitigation studies are underway?
  • What does the global science say today about these risks?
  • What about the growth beyond 2027?

The Port did not hold a planning stage meeting in Des Moines, despite requests to do so.

Please attend – ask questions and request your concerns be addressed in the environmental review!
