Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

On Thursday, I introduced legislation, with two of my colleagues, that would call on the Washington State Department of Transportation to remove the Enumclaw Plateau from being considered as a location for a future airport. This in response to public outcry from surrounding cities and residents after Enumclaw was suggested for the new greenfield site by an independent State consultant to the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission.

I want to thank all the residents of District 9 that have reached out and expressed  concern with this proposal from the State. I too share your concern and am committed to doing all that I can to ensure this airport does not get placed in the Southeast King County. While we at the King County Council cannot officially prevent WSDOT from proposing an airport within County limits, we can send a unified message to WSDOT that this location is off the table.

One direct way you can make your voice heard on this matter is by visiting the Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission online comment form. There you will be able to make public comment to the Commission and help them understand how this proposal may affect you and your neighbors. 

As always, know you can reach out with any questions or concerns about things happening around King County or the State by emailing me at Reagan.dunn@kingcounty.gov.

Have a safe and fun holiday weekend,

Reagan Dunn signature
