King County is in the early stages of updating the Airport Master Plan for King County International Airport, also known as Boeing Field. The updated plan will serve as a 20-year roadmap to guide future improvements of the airport’s facilities, helping to ensure the airport’s long-term viability and enhance safety, and furthering the airport and county’s goals for economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and community partnership. The Master Plan Update is also necessary for the airport to continue to receive federal funding through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Stakeholder input is an important part of the planning process. The plan will incorporate feedback from residents, airport tenants and users, an Airport Working Group, airport staff, and jurisdictional partners, including the FAA.

King County is hosting the first of several open houses on the Master Plan Update at key project milestones. These open houses provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the update process, provide input, speak with project staff and understand the findings of recent studies on the airport developed by third-party experts.

• Time: 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
