In fact, concerned residents are redoubling their efforts to cut down noise and pollution from the nearby airport.  The nonprofit Quiet Skies Coalition recently met at Gregory Heights Elementary to update the public about their work—and to ask for a helping hand. John Parnass, vice-president of the organization, explained that, in February, a lawsuit filed against the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) put a stop to increased air traffic over Burien.  Recently, however, the FAA issued a “Categorical Exclusion,” or CATEX, which reinstituted flight paths over the city.  if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } John Parnass, vice-president of Burien’s Quiet Skies Coalition the organization, explained that, in February, explained next steps in addressing the Federal Aviation FAA. Parnass said that the Quiet Skies Coalition is going back to the drawing table, studying the Categorical Exclusion and looking at options to challenge it. The group was given 60 days to respond.  “We have to keep fighting,” he said. “That’s what this boils down to. We know it’s an uphill battle, but this is our card, and we need to play it.” A number of residents asked about noise pollution from nearby planes during the meeting.  Larry Cripe, president of Burien’s Quiet Skies Coalition, provided them with background information, explaining that airlines started taking a new path west last summer.  “They created a fourth runway, without pouring one foot of concrete,” he said.  if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Larry Cripe, president of Burien’s Quiet Skies Coalition, provided background information about his year-long effort to fight noise and pollution from the nearby airport. Cripe worries that the problem will only get worse as the airport expands. “The traffic at SeaTac is growing by leaps and bounds,” he said. “It’s a capacity problem at the airport.”   The Quiet Skies Coalition plans to continue putting pressure on the Alaska Air Group and the Port of Seattle to resolve the issue. He asked residents to get involved by volunteering, donating and lobbying for change.  “Public officials need to be held accountable,” Cripe said. “That’s what we’re here to do, and we need your support.” Burien’s city manager Brian Wilson attended the meeting and said that the city remains committed to the cause. “We will address this issue together,” he said.  For more information about the Quiet Skies Coalition, visit www.quietskiescoalition.net.  if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Highline Times Add new comment Your name Comment About text formats Save if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Recent Articles Northwest Wine Academy to celebrate 14th annual spring release May 18-19 West Seattle light rail extension progress report: Dark tunnel looking like a bright option Longtime Burien physician Dr. Alan L W Gunsul celebrates 92 years Quiet Skies Coalition vows to keep fighting FAA Finalists named for Highline College presidency UPDATE: Shooting at West Seattle stadium is murder; Man may have been targeted if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Trending Northwest Wine Academy to celebrate 14th annual spring release May 18-19 West Seattle light rail extension progress report: Dark tunnel looking like a bright option Quiet Skies Coalition vows to keep fighting FAA Longtime Burien physician Dr. Alan L W Gunsul celebrates 92 years Finalists named for Highline College presidency UPDATE: Shooting at West Seattle stadium is murder; Man may have been targeted if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Tweets by WSSeattleNews Tweets by WSSeattleNews Publication Info Contact Advertise Monthly Archive Print Edition Terms Follow Us  RSS  Facebook  Twitter © 2017 Robinson Communications Inc.
