  • Position 2: seven candidates are vying for the seat held by Courtney Gregoire, who is not running for re-election:

    • Domenic Barrera
    • Sam Cho
    • Nina Martinez
    • Grant Degginger

In advance of the primary election, the League has also invited all Port Commission primary candidates to complete a questionnaire on aviation and airport expansion issues. See the League’s questionnaire for primary candidates here (PDF file). The League will seek to publish all responses timely received.

The League has also invited city council candidates from all six airport neighbor communities – Des Moines, Federal Way, Burien, Normandy Park, Seatac, and Tukwila, to complete the questionnaire, and will seek to publish all timely responses.

In April of this year, the League sponsored a public Town Hall in Burien attended by over 250 people featuring a keynote by Congressman Adam Smith, airnoise.io inventor Chris McCann, State Representatives Mike Pellicciotti and Tina Orwall, a special report on the World Health Organization’s new Environmental Noise Guidelines, and an “aviation noise and emission 101” by local attorney, filmmaker, activist and town hall emcee Steve Edmiston. See our previous coverage hereWatch the town hall video here.

The Burien Community Center is located at 14700 6th Ave SW in Burien:

A Public Meeting on the Sea-Tac Airport Impact Study will be held on Wednesday, July 24 at Tyee High School in SeaTac.

The meeting will run from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Tyee High School Cafeteria.

This will be first of several planned public meetings by the Washington State Department of Commerce and Stantec Consulting, intended to “inform and engage area residents on a state study of the ongoing impacts of growing operations at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.”

The open house-style meeting will provide information on the study purpose, process and data gathering efforts to date.

Those attending will also have opportunities to give input to the study leaders and members of the technical advisory committee.

The committee consists of city officials from Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, Normandy Park, SeaTac and Tukwila, and six public representatives.

A future opportunity for public input is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 6 at the City of Burien. This future meeting will be expected to summarize the public comments obtained to date and discuss preliminary findings.

Representatives Tina Orwall and Mike Pelliccioti will also participate.

WHEN: Wednesday July 24, 6 – 8 p.m.

Puget Sound Energy has awarded the King County Housing Authority with a grant to install solar panels at three of its rental properties, including in SeaTac.

The solar panels have been installed at:

  • Windsor Heights Apartments in SeaTac
  • Meadows on Lea Hill Apartments in Auburn
  • The Village at Overlake Station in Redmond

Here’s more from PSE:

Collectively, the three systems total 82 kilowatts, enough clean energy to lower the King County Housing Authority’s operating costs.

“These rooftop installations help advance the Housing Authority’s Environmental Sustainability Plan,” said KCHA Executive Director Stephen Norman. “The impact of these investments is significant – they not only reduce our housing’s impact on the environment but also lower utility costs and keep these apartments affordable to families that are increasingly struggling with escalating rent and utility costs in these markets. They are part of an ambitious five-year plan to reduce KCHA’s carbon footprint. We truly value the partnership with Puget Sound Energy and Washington State University in moving this effort forward.”

Along with the King County Housing Authority, PSE awarded nearly $465,000 in solar grants to HopeSource in Cle Elum and Opportunity Council in Bellingham to install the solar panels on five affordable multi-family housing facilities the three organizations own and operate. These organizations were chosen for their work with limited income housing.

The Washington State University Energy Program, through its Community Energy Efficiency Program, helped provide half of the funding for this project. The other half comes from PSE’s Green Power program, which allows customers to reduce their personal carbon footprint while supporting the development of renewable energy in the region.

“We are continuing our commitment to the communities we serve by choosing to work with Community Action Agencies that have a track record of serving people in need,” said Will Einstein, director of product development and growth at PSE. “By funding these solar projects on multi-family housing, not only are we supporting their core mission, but also helping to reduce their energy costs — returning savings to their tenants, and reducing their carbon footprint.”

As part of PSE’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and help our customers do their part, these solar projects are another step we’re taking with the community to preserve and protect the environment for a better energy future.

The Port of Seattle will be making $10 million available for projects “that may include support for addressing airport noise and other projects that support increased environmental health and sustainability,” Port staff told the SeaTac City Council at their regular meeting Tuesday night, July 9.

$10 million in five years
Port of Seattle Commissioner Fred Felleman and Port environmental engagement program manager Andy Gregory, told the Council about its new South Seattle Community fund, which the port’s website says “will make investments of up to $10 million over the next five years in programs that may include support for addressing airport noise and other projects that support increased environmental health and sustainability.”

There is $750,000 earmarked to be spent in this year, to “sort of jump start the process.”

The Port commission has approved principles to expand outreach efforts and the funding of projects … which will provide resources and support to airport communities which will “prioritize community input, promote innovation, support Port equity policies and practices, and build on established programs to provide added benefit to the area residents.”

Felleman said the fund was “in recognition of the fact communities near the airport and surrounding areas are disproportionally impacted” by the activities of an ever growing airport.

“This is not a … mitigation fund, this is not a third runway fund, this is a broadly recognized ‘We’re neighbors fund’ not to be confused with any sort of specific mitigation,” said Felleman. “However, there are a lot a people out here that have their own idea on how to spend this money,” but he added decisions would be made by the members of the Port Commission and not Port staff.

Robust outreach
“We are going to engage in a very robust community outreach process,” he said, acknowledging that there would be government processes involved in dispensing the money.

Andy Gregory said there are legal limits on what the Port can spend money on and it is developing “project selection criteria based on these limits.” He added that the Port hopes to get some money into the community for projects by this fall.

He told the Council he wanted the city to get ideas and suggestions from community members and pass them on to the Port, a normal city process for anyone aware of how the SeaTac Council and city staff operates.

This and that
Brian Prager, of McMicken Heights, thanked the Council that the new parking permits system has allowed “my neighborhood to go from a parking lot to a regular neighborhood. Weekends have gotten quiet, well quieter. I don’t have drunken people walking by my house at 3 a.m. anymore.”

City Manager Carl Cole introduced new city employee, Associate Planner Neil Tabor.

Cole also told the Council the 2019 population estimates show SeaTac has grown by 50 people, from 29,180 this year compared with 29,130 last year.

In partnership with the Highline Medical Center and the Highline Medical Center Foundation, the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce will be holding a Public Safety event on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. for residents and business owners in the Southside region.

The event will take place in Somers Auditorium at Highline Medical Center, located in Burien.

Here’s more from our friends at the chamber:

Attendees will enjoy a FREE opportunity to hear from industry experts on how to better manage their own personal safety both at home and at work.

“There are simple things or changes that everyone can do to create a safer environment for those we care about the most,” said CEO/President Andrea H. Reay. “We are grateful to work with our members and partners to provide this opportunity to make our homes, community, and businesses a little safer.”

Following an opening networking reception, Melissa Flaherty, Director of Pharmacy for Highline Medical Center, will share information regarding safe disposal for medications and the new take-back kiosk recently rolled out on the medical center’s campus.

In addition, Ted Boe, Chief of Police for the City of Burien, will offer a presentation on crime prevention through environmental design. We will also be joined by incoming South King County Fire Chief, Vic Pennington. The evening will wrap up with a Q&A panel discussion with all three speakers, followed by coffee and refreshments.

“Public safety is a major focus for all of us at Highline Medical Center,” said Danielle Amstrup, Executive Director for the Highline Medical Center Foundation, “and we are pleased to invite the community to learn more about ways to protect yourself and your family.”

All are welcome to attend this community event. For more information, please visit:

Late Monday night, July 8, the King County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 26-year-old male for investigation of murder related to Friday’s fatal shooting incident in SeaTac.

Police say that on Monday night at around 9 p.m., the 26-year old suspect was located at a house in Federal Way that he was known to associate with.

The suspect was taken into custody without incident, and early Tuesday morning was booked into King County Jail.

The suspect’s 29-year old girlfriend was also arrested and booked into the King County Jail for rendering criminal assistance to the suspect.

As we previously reported, on Friday afternoon, July 5, a man was shot and killed at Valley Ridge Park in SeaTac.

Detectives determined through their investigation that the 26-year old male suspect drove through Valley Ridge Park in a Dodge Charger. The suspect said something to the victim and then fired multiple rounds striking the victim and killing him immediately. The suspect fled the scene but video surveillance showed a vehicle with unique characteristics. The vehicle was found a day later by Federal Way Police and it was established at that time that it belonged to the suspect. Through the investigation it was determined that the suspect had an issue with a male who looked similar to the victim, but was not the victim.

A man was shot and killed in the 4400 block of S. 188th Street (map below) in SeaTac Friday afternoon, July 5.

Police say the victim died at the scene.

The shooting suspect fled, and there’s no information on a description yet.

Major Crimes Detectives are responding for homicide investigation.

Information: (206) 973-4680

The Highline Public Schools Board recently heard a proposal for the next School Bond, targeted at just over $418 million, and possibly placed on the 2020 election ballot.

Funds from a new bond would support the rebuilding of three schools – including Tyee – according to the Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC):

  1. Evergreen High School
  2. Tyee High School
  3. Pacific Middle School

As well as to replenish the Critical Needs Fund:

  • Replace Transportation Building L
  • Expand Sylvester kitchen
  • Cover emergency repairs
  • Pay for critical maintenance needs

A $418 million school bond would increase bond-related taxes (compared to 2019) by around 8 cents per $1,000 of property value:

  • $300,000 home = tax increase of about $24/year
  • $600,000 home = tax increase of about $48/year
  • $1.2 mil. Home = tax increase of about $96/year

The district hasn’t yet announced which ballot this bond would be placed on, but said that the “Presidential election 2020 may be a good choice.”

Here’s more from the CFAC:

Our community-led bond planning committee delivered their recommendations for the next school bond to the school board this week.

Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) co-chairs Rose Clark and Aaron Garcia–and CFAC member Jacob Tuaua, an Evergreen High School student–presented a list of building projects.

Read on to see estimated costs, tax rates, election timing and rationale for the recommended construction projects.

CFAC Recommendation for Phase 2 School Bond

A. BUILD 3 SCHOOLS

  1. Evergreen High School (1200 capacity)
  2. Tyee High School (1200 capacity)
  3. Pacific Middle School (950 capacity)

B. REPLENISH CRITICAL NEEDS FUND

  • Replace Transportation Building L
  • Expand Sylvester Middle School kitchen
  • Cover emergency repairs
  • Pay for critical maintenance needs

BOND FUNDING NEEDED: $418,271,599

WOULD A $418 MILLION BOND INCREASE PROPERTY TAXES?

A $418 million bond would not increase overall state and local education taxes compared to 2010 through 2018, or compared to taxes projected for 2020 and beyond. (In 2019, there was a temporary dip in taxes due to the timing of the change in state education funding mechanisms.)

If compared only to district bond-related property taxes in 2019, there would be an increase of approximately 8 cents per $1,000 of property value. (For a $300,000 home, the bond-related tax increase would be $24/year.)

ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS:

  1. CFAC recommends the school board create a separate process including input from school district staff and both school communities from Southern Heights Elementary and Beverly Park Elementary, to determine the future of the two schools, then provide guidance to CFAC for future bond planning.
  2. CFAC recommends considering the possible construction of a new facility for the Learning Center programs and alternative schools at the Manhattan and Woodside sites in a later bond. CFAC recommends considering the use of some funds in the next bond for exploring this consolidation idea.
  3. CFAC recommends the Evergreen and Tyee educational specifications committees research the idea of designing the high schools with the option of sharing some building systems when Cascade and Chinook middle schools are rebuilt in the future. Representatives from the middle school communities could be included in this conversation, as well as members from CFAC.

6 REASONS FOR SELECTING PROJECTS

  1. Voters approved design work for Evergreen, Tyee & Pacific in the 2016 bond. Design starts this year.
  2. Equity is a priority; the plan provides safe, modern high schools for students in all four service areas.
  3. Middle school capacity needs are greatest at Pacific due to projected growth in the south end.
  4. A critical needs fund helps us maintain our schools and facilities, extending their lives and saving taxpayer money.
  5. Transportation Building L is a former Army barracks in poor condition, used by our bus drivers and staff.
  6. Sylvester’s kitchen is undersized for enrollment.

WHY NOW?

  • Progress is critical due to our backlog of other aging schools needing replacement.
  • Regular & feasible bond cycles eliminate spikes in taxes & maintains momentum.
  • Presidential election 2020 may be a good choice.

Other Issues & Questions

Community members raised the following issues that CFAC members wanted to note, but did not have time to address or were not sure it was part of their committee charge.

A. EVERGREEN POOL

  • CFAC assumes Evergreen Pool will be retained if possible when constructing a new high school.
  • CFAC asked the Evergreen Aquatics Center to organize and lead a committee of stakeholders to gather more information and options on the future of the Evergreen Pool.

B. STUDENT PRIVACY

  • Address video surveillance/student policy & procedures.

C. EARLY LEARNING

  • Get more information about Early Learning facility needs & priorities.

CFAC Recommendations for Phase 2 Bond–English/Spanish

Investing in Our Future

By Andrea H. Reay
CEO/President
Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce

When I first started working at the Chamber three years ago, I asked our members what the number one issue impacting their business was. Their answer: “workforce.” Access to skilled and trained employees was their number one issue then and continues to be the primary concern among our local businesses. As the primary non-profit focused on serving our business community, we wanted to take a proactive approach to helping our local businesses succeed and identified education and workforce development as the way to begin to bridge the gap between the people living in our community that need better, higher paying jobs and the businesses that need skilled workers.

There is a workforce shortage, and equally at play is a skill shortage. Our Chamber is dedicated to building that bridge and to find an end to end, business led solution to both the worker and skill shortage. That is why we launched our Success Foundation. That is why we built a workforce coalition of members and partners. The Workforce Innovation Network (W.I.N. for short) was formed because we all win when our businesses can grow, and our community is rightfully employed. As Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” That is why we also launched an Exploring Post with Scouts BSA this summer to introduce our local youth to a world of work outside their immediate frame of reference and experience. This summer we are serving youth from Highline and Tyee High School. They are participating in the NASA ANGLeS Challenge. They will have a chance to compete with other teams from across the Pacific Northwest on July 19th at the University of Washington. If they are successful, they could win a trip to a Johnson Space Center in Houston! Together, with our members and partners we are inspiring, mentoring and coaching our next generation of leaders.

This work is necessary. This work will provide sustainable economic development and has the power to lift our community out of poverty in just one generation. But, we cannot do this work alone. I encourage you to reach out to us to learn more about our Education and Workforce Initiatives here at the Chamber. Maybe your business is interested in joining our coalition? Maybe you have time and could volunteer at our Exploring Post this summer? Maybe you have money left in your budget to make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year? Thank you to our donors that made this summer program a reality for our kids this year. However, we are still in need of sponsors and donors to ensure this work can continue in the future and that we can serve more in our community. If you, or your business is capable and interested in volunteering or sponsoring a kid or our program, please let us know. Any and all help is much appreciated and will go a long way to ensure that our community is ready to meet any and all future challenges.

For more information about our Success Foundation and the specific initiatives, please visit our website http://www.seattlesouthsidechamber.com/successfoundation, send an email [email protected] or give our office a call at (206) 575-1633.

Andrea H. Reay is the President/CEO of Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce: “A voice for business, a leader in the community.” Seattle Southside Chamber has served the communities of Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, SeaTac and Tukwila since 1988.

Seafair is returning to its roots of hosting the best in Northwest hydroplane racing, and recently announced that the e350 class hydroplanes will be returning this year, along with the H1 Unlimited Hydros.

Local hydro (and motorcycle, car, dragster, etc.) Driver Steve Huff – whose shop is right here in SeaTac – will be racing, and he’s seeking Sponsors for these exciting, high-profile events.

Huff has been working hard recently, building this race class up and creating a buzz around the NW Pro-Lite Series within the greater hydroplane racing community.

“Getting Seafair back on the schedule is one of the great results of our team’s recent work,” Huff said, “along with record boat participation and audience exposure.”

Now Huff is reaching out to local businesses to sponsor the Steve Huff Motorsports team as they race throughout Washington over the next few months, including at the Unlimited Hydroplane races at Tri-Cities and Seafair.

The team has three levels available, but the title sponsorship level is of primary focus for the televised events and live streamed events. It was just announced that the class sponsor will be Graham Trucking for SeaFair, Graham Trucking e350 Cup.

U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and Congressman Adam Smith (WA-09), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, on Tuesday (June 25) announced that $9.1 million in federal funding was awarded to support noise mitigation projects at schools in Highline Public Schools.

These funds will help support student learning by reducing classroom interruptions from excessive aircraft noise from nearby Sea-Tac Airport.

“Students in Burien and Des Moines deserve a healthy and productive learning environment, despite their close proximity to our state’s busiest airport,” said Senator Cantwell. “I’m proud to have teamed up with Congressman Smith and the Port of Seattle to ensure these critical noise mitigation projects receive the resources they need to support Highline students.”

“This is a great example of how partners at all levels of government can work together to keep the promises made to our students. Having grown up in SeaTac myself, I know firsthand the challenges faced by our communities and how important federal resources and support are to fixing them,” said Congressman Smith.

The grants announced yesterday by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) award the Port of Seattle with $6 million for noise mitigation measures for Highline High School in Burien and $3.1 million for the same purposes for Des Moines Elementary in Des Moines. In total, these projects will benefit more than 1,600 students. The funds will be disbursed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

“The Port is committed to economic opportunity and quality of life for all local residents, and there is no more important investment in our communities than modern, clean and quiet schools for our students,” said Port of Seattle Commission President Stephanie Bowman. “Senator Cantwell’s and Representative Smith’s leadership on ensuring this funding was a major victory, and we look forward to working with both of them, the FAA and the school district on these projects.”

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport is located in the center of the school district, and many of the district’s schools are impacted by airport noise. A 2002 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Port of Seattle, the FAA, and Highline Public Schools outlined noise mitigation for a number of Highline schools. Since the MOA was signed, the Port and the Highline school district met their portion of the funding obligation. During that time, the noise contour map around the airport was slightly changed, leaving a number of schools in areas that then did not qualify for the previously agreed upon funding. Still, schools in these areas continue to be negatively impacted by airport noise.

Last year, Senator Cantwell and Representative Smith pushed for an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act to fix this issue by allowing the FAA to provide noise mitigation funds to schools that were excluded from the previously-committed funding due to the changes in the noise contour map. The amendment was ultimately passed by Congress and signed into law, giving Highline Public Schools access to more than $14 million in FAA Airport Improvement Grants for noise mitigation projects. These projects include replacement of doors, windows, and the installation of through-the-wall AC units, as well as funds for new construction to include noise mitigation.

The City of SeaTac announced that founding SeaTac Councilmember and Mayor Terry Anderson has passed away.

Current City Councilmember Pam Fernald relayed the news to the city on Saturday morning, June 21.

Terry passed away in the early evening of June 20, 2019. Her son Scott, from Alaska, and his wife, were with her.

Anderson first took office in September 1989, during the City’s pre-incorporation.

She served consecutively until December 31, 2015.

Anderson served on the City Council from September 1989 through December 2015, when she retired from the Council. She served as Mayor between January 1998 through December 1999 and January 2010 through December 2011. Anderson served as Deputy Mayor between January 1994 through December 1995 and January 2004 through December 2005.

The impacts of her dedicated service to the SeaTac community are felt today and remembered. City Council and staff send heart-felt condolences to her family.

“Terry will be missed by all who knew her,” Fernald said.

Among many memories, some councilmembers will remember Terry’s famous comment at every Executive Session:

“It’s so cold in this room you could hang meat in here!”

MEMORIAL WILL BE SATURDAY, JUNE 29
A memorial will be held on Saturday, June 29 at 1 p.m. at the Southminster Presbyterian Church in Normandy Park, 19834 8th Ave S, Des Moines, WA 98148.

VIDEO INTERVIEW
In 2009, the Highline Historical Society received a grant to produce a video interview series with local residents, and one such interview was with Terry Anderson (the full video, which features 11 interviews, can be seen at the new Highline Heritage Museum):
