SEATTLE – The Port of Seattle is holding a Community Meeting and Open House on the Flight Corridor Safety Program developed to remove over-height and replant lower-height trees at and around Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on November 1, from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at Bow Lake Elementary in SeaTac. Removal and replanting of the trees will ensure Sea-Tac complies with all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations protecting approach and departure surfaces into and out of the airport.
The Community Meeting and Open House will provide airport communities with additional details about the program, including information stations with subject matter experts and an opportunity to offer questions and comments to Port of Seattle Commissioners.
More than 4,000 native, low-height trees will be planted by the Port in the first phase of the three year program to replace approximately 1,200 trees on Port property. The Flight Corridor Safety Program is divided into phases for trees on Port properties, publicly owned and commercial properties, and residential properties.
