april 26 Meeting
In honor of Earth Day, Port Commissioners put out a call for advisors for their Energy and Sustainability Committee to provide policy guidance about the Port's greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. The Commission also received briefings about the Port's environmental and sustainability actions within the Maritime Division and at Sea-Tac Airport. In addition, Commissioners heard about the Port's long-range plan to meet its environmental goals and recognized the winners of the annual Sea-Tac Airport Green Gateway Awards for Environmental Excellence.
APRIL 12 Meeting
Commissioners approved the addition of temporary staff at Sea-Tac Airport to make it faster for passengers to get through the security checkpoints and onto their planes. The Port's new contract personnel will allow TSA staff to focus on security screenings with the goal of opening more checkpoint lanes. Beginning in May, the new staff will manage the lines, help passengers get ready for screening, assist them after screening, and ensure bins are available at the checkpoints. Commissioners also heard briefings about the Port’s workforce development plan and the Sustainable Airport Master Plan.
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
