REMINDER: The Quiet Skies Coalition will be holding a Community Meeting to discuss the latest news on the FAA and airplane noise over Burien TONIGHT – Tuesday, April 24, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Gregory Heights Elementary School.
The group plans to provide a brief 15-minute update, offer suggestions of things they need to do, and answer questions.
Organizers hope that the FAA has incorporated their recommendations, yet “fear they oppose everything we have suggested.”
“If they are in opposition, a confrontation will be inevitable and protracted,” they said. “We will once again need strong community support to demonstrate Burien’s resolve.”
On Monday, April 2, the FAA postponed an April 3 meeting with the local group.
“Although we’re not sure, we are speculating that the FAA was about to present their mitigation proposal.
“We will be inviting the media and governmental representatives,” Quiet Skies added. “Most importantly, we want to demonstrate to the FAA that we remain firmly committed and well organized. Therefore, it is imperative that YOU show up and demonstrate our resolve.”
Gregory Heights Elementary School is located at 16201 16th Ave SW:
