King County International Airport-Boeing Field (KCIA) is a part of multiple vibrant communities surrounding the airport including neighborhoods like Georgetown, Beacon Hill, South Park, and Allentown, as well as culturally and economically diverse communities.

As such a large part of these neighborhoods, we are looking to include community members in the planning and design of projects at the airport. Learn more about these opportunities below. You can also contact us at KCIACommunityOutreach@kingcounty.gov. To be informed of future projects that will have community working groups, sign up here.

Northwest Fence Line Replacement Community Survey

King County International Airport (KCIA) owns a fence along its northwest perimeter. The fence is between airport property and Ellis Avenue, South Albro Place, Hardy Street, and South Elizabeth Street. The goal of this project is to replace that fence with one that improves the look and feel of the Georgetown neighborhood while meeting the airport's security needs. This fence is also being relocated slightly to ensure enough space for the Seattle Department of Transportation to install a multi-use trail, a separate city project. 

KCIA collaborated with a community working group to help develop the three fence options below. We would like the opinions of the larger community before making a final selection. 

More information about the three fence options:

We invite you to take the survey by October 21. 

The results of this survey will help the airport's leaders determine a final fence type.
