The Citizens Against Sea-Tac Expansion (C.A.S.E.) is holding their monthly “Sea-Tac Expansion” Meeting on Wednesday, April 7th from 7pm to 9pm at the ERAC offices, located at 15675 Ambaum Blvd. SW.

This meeting should be particularly interesting, as Mark Reis, the Managing Director of the airport, has agreed to speak about the ongoing Part 150 Study and other topics connected to the airport.

Here are the details:

WHAT: CASE Monthly Meeting

WHEN: Wednesday, April 7th, from 7pm to 9pm.

Airport Managing Director Mark Reis will address airport noise issues Wed. night.

WHERE: ERAC (Highline District Adm. Office), located at 15675 Ambaum Blvd. S.W., Burien.

INFO: From an email release:

You and your friends and neighbors are invited to attend our April monthly CASE meeting.

CASE President Brett Fish will be conducting the meeting with introductions of the public officials attending.  The primary topic for discussion for the meeting will focus on the 3rd Runway Noise Issues and the pending FAA Part 150 study that the Port of Seattle is currently underway for the FAA.

The featured speaker for the meeting will be Mark Reis, who is Managing Director of the Sea-Tac International Airport.  Mark requested that he be able to speak to us at the CASE meeting on the issues related to the Part 150 study and other topics connected to the airport.  Mark has suggested that he be given approximate times of 20-minutes to summarize the Port’s study planning before opening it up to public comments and questions for another 45-minutes.

This will give private citizens and homeowners an opportunity to personally voice comments on the mitigation for the noise and any other 3rd runway operational impacts on their quality of life to a major player in the FAA Part 150 study.

Time permitting (following the comments and questions with Mark Reis), Brett Fish and Stuart Creighton, RCAA President (and CASE VP), will give us their personal comments on the kick-off working session held on March 24th at Mt Rainier HS.  Brett may have a few “Video Clips” to show us that he took during that meeting.

If for any reason, you cannot attend this meeting and would like to have a question answered, e-mail it to Jim Bartelmay and he’ll get it to either Brett or Stuart to ask of Mark Reis or his staff.

If you have questions or need directions, call 206-824-6589.

    The airport does not really care about generating the extra noise as they have lied to the citizens time and again.
    Why should this be any different? It will not be. This is just a pacifier with the airport hoping that the population will believe that it cares and will stop complaining.
    This is an exercise in futility. Good luck on accomplishing anything lasting or anything meaningful (like redued noise or plane traffic).

    Here’s an interesting link of Part 150 study information that took place at another airport. It appears that this study doesn’t have much “teeth” to require local airports to act on behalf of nearby residents. Or maybe I’m reading it wrong….take a look for yourself:
