Siting status

Latest update: After hearing from the public and conducting additional technical work and further research into Federal Airport Administration rules and the Airport Master Plan, the project team has removed the Airport Site from further consideration.

During our June outreach process, we heard from a number of Kittitas County residents who came out to our in-person open house or left their feedback on this website. Based on this feedback, we made several additions to our siting criteria. These criteria in turn helped to inform the site screening process, in which over 60 sites were narrowed down to three.
