Sept 12 meeting

Please note: The bold paragraph in italics below has been updated to include corrected information and ways to comment or ask questions of the Port Commission or the City of Seattle. Thank you.


Commissioner Stephanie Bowman, front row second from left, listens to Seattle officials and residents at a community discussion about a tiny structure/tent site on Port property.

At the Sept. 12 meeting, Port of Seattle Commissioners are scheduled to consider authorizing the use of vacant Port property, at 1601 15th Ave. W., as a temporary sanctioned encampment for the homeless.

The Port and City of Seattle held a public meeting on this proposal Sept. 6. If the Port Commission approves making the property available, the City plans to host up to two more public meetings. For comments related to the Port’s participation, please email To comment or ask questions about homelessness and encampments, contact

Also at next week’s meeting, Commissioners are expected to consider authorizing funds to improve layover facilities, including restrooms, for taxi drivers serving Sea-Tac Airport.

The agenda also includes a request to authorize the executive director to execute Economic Development Partnership Program contracts with Des Moines, Issaquah, Kenmore, Renton, Shoreline and Skykomish for local economic development projects.
