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.

Community survey and workshop

King County International Airport is looking for feedback on two initiatives under development:

  • An Air Monitoring Plan to determine the type and location for air monitors at the airport.
  • A Landscape Plan to identify what plants to use at the airport.

You can get involved by taking our survey and/or participating in an upcoming community workshop.
