  1. I hope folks go to represent West Seattle to the aircraft flight meeting. I had already scheduled another meeting and can’t attend. Very much want to be there. We are going to be impacted severely when the plane traffic increases. Is WSB going to be able to be there? ~z

  2. Planning on it but PLEASE don’t let that stop anybody who is interested and CAN come, from coming. Sure, we can get you the toplines, but nothing makes an impression – even if you don’t speak or ask a question – like BEING THERE. This has been especially heavily publicized in Beacon Hill, since they apparently are affected even more severely, so we’re hoping SOMEBODY is coming to ask West Seattle questions and/or voice West Seattle concerns … we know they’re out there … TR

  3. Thanks, Tracy. I was frustrated when they changed the meeting to this date. Originally it was to be in late October. ‘So want to be there.
    .
    This may end up being like I-5 in the sky as we look toward the Olympics. :( Plus they aircraft are already cutting the turns early over Elliott Bay. ~z

  4. I was planning to attend, but the (Oct.) meeting was cancelled; since then I had been looking for info on the reschedule but somehow missed it. This heads up sadly came too late.

  5. The Port announced the new date on October 29th:
    http://westseattleblog.com/2012/10/aircraft-concerns-faa-port-announce-new-meeting-dateplace
    .
    We also put it in our calendar immediately – if you’re watching for something, you can go to that page and do a browser “find” for a keyword any old time. We have events stretching ahead for months.
    .
    Sadly, we in the end did not get to go to the meeting either. The officers-injured incident and White Center stabbing both broke in the early evening and kept co-publisher Patrick from going to Beacon Hill. There was a very engaged Beacon Hill group, though, so I am hopeful that some form of coverage will emerge. – TR
