Update on Potential Seatac Size Airport in South Thurston County, Post by Dennis Plank
The County council turned down the idea of an airport here and the Port of Olympia specifically turned down the idea of a South Thurston County airport by a vote of 3-0 and the idea of expanding the existing airport by a vote of 2-1. This issue looks dead for now, but these things have a way of rearing their ugly heads again and there are plenty of other development hungry folks eyeing all the “empty” space in this part of the county, so keep your eyes open.
Thanks to everyone who provided their input to the County Council and the Port Council. Without active citizen participation, our government often does very stupid things.
