The Port of Orcas is currently preparing a master plan for Orcas Island Airport that will guide the direction of projects to bring the airport into compliance with safety standards for existing airport operations and to provide for the future needs of island residents and visitors over the next 20 years.
The preferred alternative will be presented at the September Public Open House, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 19, from 1– 2 p.m. at the Eastsound Fire Station, or from 5–8:30 p.m. at Orcas Center. Formal presentations are for 30 minutes at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The two presentations will be identical and there will be 30 minutes for questions immediately following the presentation.
All open house materials, including the slides, are available at the port’s website. Public comments will be accepted on the preferred alternative from Sept. 5 to Oct. 5. Public comments must be formally submitted by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Project Manager Leah Henderson at 425-869-2670.
