Carl Nelson, a member of the Northwest Stone Sculptor’s Association helped organize this event and is one of the many sculptors who will be displaying. Nelson says “I have a deep emotional drive to learn and create. I strive to call on positive emotions, be engaging, and nurture relationships. I use all the skill, achievement, and wisdom I possess to leave myself and the world a better place and be part of a larger purpose and meaning.

 

“I enjoy creating art that portrays the warmth and goodness of being with others. Most recently, I have been concerned with making art that raises the awareness of how to measure a Better Future for All (BFFA), and in particular the use of social progress indicators (see socialprogress.org) to make visible how well a community provides for its members well-being.”

 

Eileen Simmons, President of Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens says, “We are pleased to be able to offer this event in an expanded two-day format. Enthusiasm for this event was very high last year, when over 50 sculptures lined the Arboretum pathways. Offering the Soapstone classes is also part of our mission and should be lots of fun. We appreciate our sponsors for supporting us and this event.”

 

Sponsors include Newland Construction, Sunnyside Nursery and Lamoureux Real Estate; and event partners, Northwest Stone Sculptors Association and Schack Arts Center.

 

The mission of Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens is to create and maintain an inspirational arboretum and gardens accessible to all, internationally acclaimed and locally enjoyed for its plant diversity, original art and educational opportunities.

Comments Off on Open House Launched As Paine Field In Everett On Short List For Expansion

Open House Launched As Paine Field In Everett On Short List For Expansion

Paine Field is on the State’s short list for expansion.

The State of Washington is asking the Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission to recommend airports that could be expanded in the future to service cargo operations, passenger flights or both. On the short list of those airports sits Paine Field in Everett, Washington.

Paine Field is one of two airports currently being studied for both air cargo and additional passenger service. Today the CACC announced a four-week open house to present information to and receive information from the public. If you’d like to learn more or give suggestions here’s what you need to know.

 

Addressing aviation needs: public invited to virtual open house and public meetings about the future of aviation

Online open house Aug. 15 – Sept. 9; virtual public meetings planned for Aug. 23 and 31

OLYMPIA – The demand for aviation in Washington state is growing and will soon exceed the capacity of some highly used existing facilities.

Community members are invited to learn more about efforts to address demand through existing airports in the state or a new airport location. People who are interested may provide input through an online open house or two public meetings. The online open house and virtual meetings are being held by the Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission to recommend strategies to address growing aviation needs.

Online open house

When:             Online open house: Monday, Aug. 15 – Friday, Sept. 9

Where:           engage.wsdot.wa.gov/cacc/

Details:           In addition to English, the online open house will be available in Amharic, Arabic, Chinese (simplified and traditional), French, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Tigrinya, and Vietnamese

Online virtual public meetings 

When:             Noon – 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23

5:30 – 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 31

 Where:           Visit wsdot.wa.gov/travel/aviation/commercial-aviation-coordinating-commission to access the link to the online meetings.

The commission is considering environmental effects, economic and technical criteria, and public feedback and opinion as it develops recommendations to improve Washington’s air transportation capacity. The input Washington residents share will play an important role in the recommendations the CACC develops.

The CACC is studying both short and long-term strategies to address air passenger service, air cargo operations and general aviation capacity needs. This is an opportunity for the state to consider how to meet capacity limits while also planning for the use of innovative technologies and the concept of an airport of the future within the state’s aviation system. Incorporating innovative technologies could result in the increased use of sustainable aviation fuels, clean energy production at airports, and significantly reduced harmful emissions and noise from airplanes while providing additional commercial air service to more airports around the state.

About the Commercial Aviation Coordination Commission

The CACC was created by the Legislature in 2019 to ensure Washington can meet future commercial aviation demands. The Legislature directed three phases for the commission’s work:

  • Phase I: develop a short list of six locations.
  • Phase II: identify the top two locations.
  • Phase III: choose a single preferred location by a 60-percent majority vote.

In December 2020, the CACC released its Phase I report, which listed six preliminary airport sites with potential for expansion to meet both short and long-term aviation needs.

A February 2022 report provided a final short list of six locations.

Two of the six airport sites are now being studied for expanded service including Bremerton National Airport for air cargo operations and Paine Field in Snohomish County for air cargo and additional passenger service. The CACC is also studying 10 representative sites in the Puget Sound region as an option for a new airport.

The commission will provide a recommendation to the Legislature by June 15, 2023 for a single preferred location to meet the forecast demand for commercial passenger service, air cargo, and general aviation.

The CACC’s 15 voting and 11 nonvoting members include representatives from the aviation industry, the public, airport communities, freight industry, state and local agencies and elected officials. WSDOT provides the CACC technical assistance and staff support from its Aviation Division.
