The City of SeaTac
2018 Supplemental Operating Budget Proviso
Airport Impact Study
More than 20 years have passed since the last airport study was completed
As the host to Washington State’s largest international airport, the City of SeaTac is
proud to welcome the many travelers entering and leaving our state. As the SeaTac
International Airport expands, SeaTac International Airport surrounding communities
request funding to continue to be a strong, welcoming community.
Twenty years ago, when the third runway was in its planning stages, the State
conducted the Sea-Tac International Airport Impact Mitigation Study, which found that
“costs associated with these [airport] improvements are disproportionately borne by
those communities immediately surrounding the airport.”
The purpose of the study is to establish a point-in-time baseline of both positive and
negative community and economic impacts and provide objective data to communicate
this information to the residents of the cities and other interested parties
Now is the time for an update to the study
The Sea-Tac International Airport is the 6th fastest growing airport in the world.
It’s the 9th busiest airport in the United States (2014).
Passenger levels increased approximately 13% from 2014.
On-site activity of the airport supports 32,000 jobs.
In 2013, $565 million in state and local tax revenue was generated.
The Port of Seattle’s Sustainable Airport Master Plan envisions further expansion of the
airport in the coming years.
The City of SeaTac has allocated $250,000 in local funds to updating the study and is
working with neighboring cities to gather additional community support.
Budget Proviso Language
$500,000 of the general fund – state appropriation for fiscal year 2019 - is provided solely as a state
match for distribution to the Department of Commerce to select a consultant to conduct an analysis of
current and ongoing community and economic impacts of the Sea-Tac International Airport not
otherwise covered by current airport related studies. The study shall be delivered to the legislature by
December 1, 2019. The Department shall seek feedback on project scoping and consultant selection from
the cities listed below.
The analysis will include, but not be limited to the impacts that current and ongoing airport operations
have on noise, public health, traffic, congestion, and parking in residential areas, pedestrian access to
and around the airport, public safety and crime within the cities, effects on residential and nonresidential property values, and economic development opportunities in the cities of SeaTac, Burien, Des
Moines, Tukwila, Federal Way and Normandy Park.
The Department will coordinate with the Port of Seattle and other entities to collect data on topics
identified by the study. The study will include recommendation and options for mitigating any negative
impacts identified through the analysis. The Department shall not spend the appropriation unless
$500,000 in local matching funds is transferred to the Department. The City of SeaTac will serve as the
fiscal agent for any local matching funds and remit to the Department upon receipt of invoices for work
