I am pleased to share another letter requesting the removal of the Pierce County and Thurston County greenfield sites from consideration by the Nisqually Indian Tribe. I received permission to share it with you.
Below is an excerpt of the letter sent Tuesday:
"The Nisqually Indian Tribe was recently made aware that The Commercial Aviation Coordinating Commission, which was tasked by state lawmakers in 2019 with identifying a potential home for a new airport to be constructed by 2040, voted to move forward with analyzing the viability of developing land on "Pierce County East" and "Pierce County Central," as well as a potential site in Thurston County. All of these sites present substantial risks to the treaty-right resources and well-being of the Nisqually Indian Tribe, and we are writing today to express our concern and opposition to continuing siting investigations of these three sites."

Grateful for you!
