Thank you for this information, Vicki.

I am appalled at the notion of having a possibly international airport so
close to Mt. Rainier, several state parks and the beautiful farmlands in
this area.

Wildlife is already being displaced due to the rampant clear-cutting of
forests to put thousands of homes in place with zero regard for the impact
of the natural areas, not to mention the farmland.

The noise alone would be disruptive to the many species here and the birds
especially who migrate using the many wetlands including Veazie marsh and
other nearby birding locations. What will be the impact on the Green and
White rivers? They've already added an international airport in Everett. I
can't believe they need another one. Additionally there is no road
infrastructure to support this.

I am planning to write to my legislators and the commission today.

We must stop this and it is very concerning that, in this proposal, the
Enumclaw plateau ranks highest.

Here are some links I found so people can become informed.


And from this article:

"The Enumclaw City Attorney is tasked with researching the matter and
reporting back to the council when further information is received. The
CACC is seeking comments from local citizens who may be potentially
affected by its decision. Virtual public meetings will be held by the CACC
from August 23 to August 31. More information and links will be announced.
If you would like to contact CACC about this issue, visit Christina Cree,
Communications 360-810-0902 or write CACC at wsdot.wa.gov

We must act to preserve the remaining green spaces in southern King County
