Seattle Invites Public Comments New Cruise Terminal

The Port of Seattle has announced three public scoping meetings and open houses for its proposed Terminal 46 cruise development.

The port is proposing to develop a new cruise terminal at Terminal 46, which it said will be part of a flexible marine transportation facility, which will continue to support cargo and other marine operations. It also stated that analysis of the cruise market and cruise ship deployment supports the need of a fourth berth to meet the demand for its cruise services, which can no longer be met by the three berths at the port’s two existing terminals.

According to a port statement, the scoping meetings will enable it to determine the scope of issues that will be need to be addressed in the environmental review document, for soliciting input regarding the proposed action and reasonable alternatives, and for identifying concerns regarding the potential environmental effects of the proposed action. Comments received during scoping will be reviewed and taken into consideration during the preparation of the SEPA analysis.

All communications are due no later than 4:00 p.m. November 13, 2019, and can be submitted by email, in writing or in writing and/or verbally at the three public scoping meetings and open houses on Oct. 30, Nov. 4 and Nov. 7.
