Draft Paine Study

Sometime after November 2nd the draft report will become final which could allow a date to be set for flights to begin.

Back in September we told you about the FAA releasing a draft report on the supplemental environmental assessment covering proposed commercial airplane service at Paine Field in Everett, Washington.

At that time the FAA reported no significant noise or environmental impacts from the expected flight operations of Alaska Airlines, United Airlines or Southwest Airlines as outlined in their latest plans to fly to the following cities:

DEN = Denver International Airport
LAS = Las Vegas McCarran International Airport
LAX = Los Angeles International Airport
PDX = Portland International Airport
PHX = Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
SAN = San Diego International Airport
SFO = San Francisco International Airport
SJC = San Jose Mineta International Airport
SNA = John Wayne – Orange County Airport
OAK = Oakland International Airport

A Public comment period opened up allowing people to submit comments to the FAA regarding the plan. Those comments can be submitted to the following address: (Friday November 2nd is the deadline for written comments)

Environmental Science Associates, Paine Field Supplemental EA; 5309 Shilshole Ave NW, Suite 200; Seattle, WA 98107.

In addition a public workshop and hearing was set for Monday October 29th at the Lynnwood Convention Center, at 3711 196th St SW, Lynnwood, WA 98036, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The Public Information Workshop will be an informal Open House format, to allow for one-on-one interaction with the Study Team. The public can attend the workshop at any time between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. to review information related to the Draft Supplemental EA and speak with the Study Team.

At 6:30 p.m., the Public Information Workshop will close, and the Public Hearing will begin. A brief presentation will be made at the start of the Public Hearing to explain the purpose, procedures, and rules of conduct.

The Public Hearing will allow the public to enter their comments verbally into the record but will not include answering questions posed by members of the public. Attendees may sign up to speak at the Public Hearing until 8:30 p.m.

The hearing is expected to be well attended with folks both for and against commercial air service at Paine Field making their final public pitch.

The FAA’s final report is then expected sometime before the end of the year.
