Getting Attuned to the SAMP
Sea-Tac’s Sustainable Airport Master Plan is a long-term blueprint for airport development to meet the needs of the traveling public, while reducing environmental and social impacts. And boy oh boy, are the needs of the traveling public exploding. Generally, airport directors are happy with 2% passenger growth. At Sea-Tac, passenger growth was 7.7% higher in 2014 than the previous year and so far this year growth is up more than 13%! So how is Sea-Tac and the region planning to accommodate that growth over the next 20 years? Check out the SAMP PowerPoint presentation here, housed on the Chamber’s website.
The Chamber will officially weigh-in with airport officials and the port commission late this month. When the Chamber’s correspondence is finalized, we will share it with you all on the transportation committee page.
