The Port of Seattle will be presenting “recommended options” to its ‘Part 150’ Noise Study at two public events in late June – in Federal Way on Tuesday, June 28th and at Sea-Tac Airport on Wednesday, June 29th.
Port staff and their consultant team will “present the draft recommended options for reducing aircraft noise in the newly proposed noise remedy area around the airport.” This work is being done as part of Sea-Tac Airport’s Part 150 Noise Study. Presentations will take place at the following two upcoming public events in late June.
- June 28 -Port of Seattle Commission Presentation at 1 p.m. – City of Federal Way Council Chambers. This is a regular Port Commission meeting.
- June 29 – Highline Forum Presentation at 2:30 p.m. – Sea-Tac Airport Conference Center’s Beijing Conference Room.
Here’s more from the Port’s press release:
Preliminary recommended options that will be discussed at the two events include, but are not limited to, residential sound insulation programs, an aircraft engine testing facility designed to suppress noise and an updated noise monitoring system.
Later in the summer, the public will be able to provide input on the proposed recommendations at a public hearing and during a 45 day public comment period. Feedback gathered at the public events and during the public comment period will be taken into consideration before a final set of recommendations is sent to the Port of Seattle Commission for approval.
