The Port of Seattle will be holding two more meetings for Sea-Tac Airport’s “Part 150” Noise Study: the first on Wednesday, Sept. 22nd when the Highline Forum meets, and the second on Wednesday, Oct. 27th at Mount Rainier High School, also in Des Moines.

As many of our Readers (and airport neighbors) know, the “Part 150” Noise Study “looks at ways to reduce aircraft noise impacts on communities. Throughout the study, the public is invited to participate in the solution and recommendation process through active engagement in a series of topical workshops.”

The meeting details are:

1. Highline Forum meeting: Wednesday, Sept. 22nd at 2:30pm at the City of Des Moines Activity Center, located at 2045 South 216th Street, Des Moines.

2. Part 150 Noise Study meeting: Wednesday, Oct. 27th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Mt. Rainier High School, located at 22450 19th Ave. South in Des Moines.

The Port adds:

At the workshop, the new airport-area noise exposure “contour” maps showing neighborhoods currently affected by noise and those that will be affected by noise in the future will be unveiled and discussed.  As with the last two workshops, small group working sessions will be utilized to foster conversation and actively develop solutions to reducing airport noise.

On September 22nd, the members of the Highline Forum will also discuss the Part 150 Noise Study at the City of Des Moines Activity Center – 2045 South 216th Street, Des Moines.  The meeting begins at 2:30pm and the public is invited to observe.  The Highline Forum includes the southwest King County communities of Des Moines, Burien, Normandy Park, SeaTac, Tukwila and Federal Way and the Highline School District and Port of Seattle.
