ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Gwen Davis

The Port of Seattle told the public weeks ago that on Mon. Oct. 10, it would host a public meeting regarding the nearly 3,000 trees it's planning on chopping down. This announcement was captured by a previous Highline Times story, by a City of SeaTac city council agenda, and by the SeaTac Community Center. However, the Highline Times discovered the day of that the Port cancelled the meeting.

See our previous coverage here.

There was speculation among residents that the meeting was cancelled to avoid negative publicity.

The Port was contacted for comments. Perry Cooper, Port public affairs manager responded that the meeting was actually scheduled for Nov. 1.

In the meantime, the Port is speeding up the pace, and tomorrow, Oct. 11 during a Port commissioner meeting, officials will discuss whether to approve increasing the tree cutting project spending by another 10 percent, according to a Port of Seattle memorandum.
