REMINDER: Port’s SAMP meeting will be at Highline College Monday, Sept. 10


REMINDER: The Port of Seattle will be holding a Public Meeting on its ‘Sustainable Airport Master Plan’ (SAMP) at Highline College this coming MONDAY, SEPT. 10, and all area residents who have concerns or questions 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.

This will likely be one of the last opportunities to show up, hear from the Port, ask questions and get answers to any concerns you might have.

If this meeting is like a previous one held in Burien in July, it will include a long PowerPoint presentation from the Port on the SAMP (perhaps they’ll use larger fonts for this one?), followed by a public comment/Q&A session (to see video from that meeting, click here [2]).

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.

All meetings will take place from 5:30–8:30 p.m.

“These meetings and the written comments submitted during the scoping process will shape the environmental analysis being completed over the next year,” the Port said.
