Paine Field Charter Review Meeting
Mon, Apr 4, 2016 - 10:45 PM

We encourage you to show your support for responsible management of Paine Field by attending the Snohomish County Charter Review Commission meeting this Wednesday at 7:00 PM, Mukilteo City Hall.

Voters elected 15 people to the Charter Review Commission. Wednesday, April 6, they will be meeting at Mukilteo City Hall at 7 PM, to hear from you on your ideas for the charter.

This week, Mayor Gregerson plans to introduce a proposal concerning Paine Field Airport. She believes the public should weigh in before major changes occur at Paine Field like sale or transfer of public assets.

She believes the county should be required to hold a public vote before any sale or transfer of Paine Field Airport. The airport is an important county asset, and voters should weigh in before changes occur.

Her other proposal is to empower the Paine Field Community Council to provide more oversight of the airport, to make the Community Council a part of the charter, and to adjust the membership of the Community Council to better represent the public.

You can find more information about Mayor Gregerson's proposals here.

You can also send your comments by email to Chris.roberts@snoco.org.

Whether you attend, send your comments by email, or both, we urge you to seize this opportunity to help shape the future of Paine Field.
