FOLLOWUP: Des Moines resident Steve Edmiston reports that his new documentary film project â€“ intended to provide a â€œbriefingâ€ to the Port of Seattle Commissioners addressing the harms to airport neighbor communities resulting from aircraft noise and emissions resulting from increased flights at Sea-Tac Airport â€“ is off to a solid start with widespread interest and positive feedback on social media. Edmiston, a local attorney and filmmaker, must provide his briefing in 2-minute public comment segments, as provided by Port rules. Based upon the Port Commissionâ€™s schedule, Edmiston estimates the project will take 9 to 12 months to complete. â€œBased upon the comments and sharing we see on social media, and calls and e-mails Iâ€™ve received from around the country, it seems fair to say the project is off to a solid start and what that means is that our airport neighbor community, and similar airport communities around the country, are paying attention,” Edmiston said. “I think our citizens want the Commissioners to take this information â€“ that they were not provided by the FAA last year â€“ seriously and that they are watching to see how the Commissioners will react.â€ The first episode of The Briefing, titled â€œThe Briefing You Should Have Had,â€ can be viewed below: [embed]https://youtu.be/yzbHNHteP9w[/embed] For more information on this compelling new ‘Citizen vs Goliath’ project, visit https://www.facebook.com/thebriefingproject/ Our prior coverage is available here.]]>
