 The Airport Advisory Committee met on June 25, to review the feedback on proposed landside alternatives, and discuss next steps. As a result of the discussion, the committee decided it would compile data on impacts and forward to City Council for consideration, rather than seek to recommend a package of landside alternatives. 

 In follow-up, we have organized a second survey around the categories of impact identified by committee members and stakeholders at the meeting:

  • Loss of airport revenue from elimination of hangar leases
  • Loss of on-airport aviation business
  • Loss of business to off-airport businesses, such as hotel and transportation
  • Loss of pilot training opportunities and flight instruction jobs 
  • Loss of aviation mechanics
  • Loss of aviation refuelers
  • Impact/loss of hangar space*
  • Impact/loss of tiedown space*
  • Sunk cost for recent projects* 
  • Direct and indirect job loss and direct and indirect economic impact
  • Impact on 737 production
  • Impact on seaplane base 
  • Effect on hangar rental rates 
  • Impact to Boeing Field and Seatac airspace
  • Impact to Angel Flights and Medivac

*denotes categories for which additional data is being developed by planning team

Results of the categories of impact will be packaged and distributed in advance of the next Airport Advisory Committee meeting, scheduled for August 13, 2019.

Thank you for being part of this important process.
