Tukwila seeks applicants for new Port of Seattle community committee

Residents interested in serving on SEA Stakeholder Advisory Round Table need to apply by Jan. 22.

The city of Tukwila is seeking two community members to serve on a new Port of Seattle community committee.

In February, the Port of Seattle will convene a new community roundtable called SEA Stakeholder Advisory Round Table (StART). StART will provide an opportunity for Tukwila community members to discuss concerns and voice feedback regarding Sea-Tac Airport construction project, programs and operations. Meetings will be designed to encourage dialogue on airport activities, inform decision-making and increase knowledge about the airport and surrounding cities.

The committee will include staff and community members from adjacent cities, the Port of Seattle, airlines and air cargo companies. The Federal Aviation Administration also is expected to participate.

Meetings will be in the evening on the fourth Wednesday in February, April, August, June, August, October and December.

Tukwila residents interested in being considered for an appointment to the committee should fill out an application online at tukwilawa.gov/wp-content/uploads/Boards-and-Commissions-Application.pdf.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 22. For questions or to submit an application, email BoardsComms@Tukwilawa.gov.
