Mukilteo's Mayor, Jennifer Gregerson, has presented a proposal to the Snohomish County Charter Review Commission to increase public involvement in decisions involving Paine Field. This proposal will be discussed at the next Charter Commission meeting, this Wednesday, June 22nd at 6:00 in the Snohomish County Council Chambers. We encourage all to attend and let the Commission know that you do want to be involved.
One reason for the Propeller/County "up to" 50 year lease was limited transparency around the lease negotiation, Propeller or the conditions of the lease that include transferability and expansion options. And, with no public scoping the environmental assessment only included a handful of flights in determining impacts of allowing unrestricted commercial service. The public needs early and meaningful input on these decisions. Attend, and let the Commission know you want them to vote for the amendments to increase public involvement.
