Washington’s next commercial airport

The newly created public commission tasked with identifying where the state’s next commercial airport should be located will hold its first organizational meeting Wednesday, Oct. 30.

The Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission (CACC) was created by the Legislature to ensure Washington can meet future commercial aviation demands. The commission’s recommendations are due to the Legislature by January 2022.

In addition to recommending a new primary commercial airport, the commission will recommend additional ways to accommodate capacity needs at other airports. The commission will narrow down potential airport sites based on previous research as well as factors such as airspace, local land use, environmental impacts, market demand and community input.

The commission’s first meeting, on the state Capitol Campus in Olympia from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will include discussion of the administrative process, goals of the group and previous aviation studies. The meeting is open to the public, but will not include a public comment period.

The CACC’s 15 voting and 11 nonvoting members include representatives from the aviation industry, airport communities, freight industry, state and local agencies and elected officials. The Washington State Department of Transportation will provide the commission technical assistance and staff support from its Aviation Division.

Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission meeting:
When: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 30

Where: Capitol Campus, Joel M. Pritchard Building, Washington Room
415 15th Ave. SW, Olympia, WA 98504

Details: The meeting is open to the public but no public comment period is scheduled.
