November 22 Meeting
Port of Seattle Commissioners authorized two leases on Port property to develop 425,000 square feet of aviation-related facilities, and generate 500 to 600 quality jobs in food processing, manufacturing and supporting warehouse functions. This site is in Burien.
After inviting input from community members at a Nov. 1 meeting, Commissioners approved changes to the Flight Corridor Safety Program at Sea-Tac Airport, and authorized a $1 million Airport Community Ecology Fund to support projects that improve ecological and environmental attributes in airport-area communities.
The Commission also approved the Port’s 2017 budget, including new funding for workforce development opportunities, infusion of surplus revenue into the levy fund, and new investments in environmental projects and programs.

Century Agenda: Our plan for the future
Starting in 2008, three years in advance of the its 100th birthday, the Port of Seattle began creating a “Century Agenda” — building a comprehensive vision and strategic plan that focuses on the port’s next quarter-century of business and operations.
The goal of the Century Agenda is to build upon the accomplishments of the past century with a visionary look forward to the emerging challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. This Commission-led process includes port employee engagement, public outreach opportunities and planning with the major lines of business. Watch a short Century Agenda video here.
