Coalition Update: FAA Public Comment

Dear Coalition supporters,

Thank you for attending last week’s community meeting.  For those of you who were unable to attend, you can find a link to the meeting on our Facebook page.
Since the meeting, two things have occurred, both of which require your action.

  • After meeting with the city, we will work together moving forward.
  • The FAA has issued a 14-day public comment period on the new flight path, beginning June 7 and ending June 21.

In your response to the FAA’s public comment period, we suggest that you mention how long you have lived in the community and when you first noticed this dramatic increase in air traffic over your home and/or business.  You can send your comments here:  9-ato-wsa-public-comments@faa.gov.   Click here to see council member Debi Wagner’s public response to the FAA, and here to see Quiet Skies Coalition committee member, Walt Bala’s response.

The FAA has also asked that you suggest alternatives to their new flight path.  Of course, this is ridiculous to suggest that we, as citizens do THEIR job!  We do not possess either the knowledge or expertise to provide alternatives and only ask that they do their job within the confines of the laws that govern them.

We also suggest that you email each city council member individually and ask for his or her response to the FAA’s 14-day public comment period.  Please click here for council member email addresses.

From the beginning, our mission has been to inform, educate, and empower you, the citizens, to become more involved in our activities as a collective group.  It is imperative that you, a homeowner, protect your rights by filling out the avigation easement letter and mailing it ASAP to the addresses listed on our website.   Contact me, Larry Cripe at 206.321.0630 with any questions.

Please continue to check our website to stay current with all the information and data that we are providing, and as always, thanks for your support.

Sincerely,
Larry Cripe, President
Quiet Skies Coalition
