FAA/Port air-traffic meeting on Beacon Hill: Concerns, no solutions

November 13, 2012 at 11:56 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle people | 1 Comment

ORIGINAL TUESDAY NIGHT REPORT: While tonight’s early-evening breaking news kept us from getting to Beacon Hill for the air-traffic-concerns meeting, our partners at The Seattle Times had a reporter there: Alexa Vaughn reports that about 100 people attended. Her story does not mention any West Seattle-specific concerns, but summarizes that South Seattle residents were upset about the meeting being a chance only to vent, rather than to hear possible solutions. For potential next steps, you can watch the Facebook page of Quieter Skies Task Force, a citizens’ group active on this issue.

ADDED THURSDAY MORNING: Beacon Hill Blog has a meeting summary too.

  1. The Port of Seattle does not care about impacts to our community. Look into the way they have handled their commitments to us at Terminal 5. The City is having to sue them in court to get them to comply with even the simplest conditions the Port committed in writing to follow.
    We would be crazy to believe anything the Port tells us about noise. Even if it is in writing!
