Next Quiet Skies Coalition meeting will be Tuesday, June 6 at Gregory Heights

The next Quiet Skies Coalition meeting is set for Tuesday, June 6, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Gregory Heights Elementary School in Burien.

“As many of you already know, the FAA was forced to stop the new flight path over our city,” Larry Cripe, the group’s President said in a statement. “The FAA implemented this new flight path without following their own necessary protocol and procedures, including NOT doing any environmental studies or city and public discussions.”

“However, since this victory represents just one battle and not the war, we remain vigilant,” Crime added. “And, unfortunately, we must also anticipate that these flights might resume when aircraft are departing to the north, which are based on the FAA’s false claim that there is historical precedent that allows it to do these turns over our city.”

The Quiet Skies Coalition and the City of Burien have already advised our attorney in San Francisco that we staunchly disagree with any claim by the FAA that there is historical precedent for this new route, and our legal firm is in the process of taking the necessary steps to prevent the resumption of this activity. We will update you with the results as they happen.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
The Coalition needs someone to manage a group of volunteers who will be passing out neighborhood flyers and yard signs, and getting petitions signed.

If you can help, please email or call [email protected] or 206.321.0630.
