City Manager’s Weekly Report
for week ending May 26, 2018

Airport issues. Wednesday, May 30, 4:30-7:00PM, in the Burien Community Center at 14700 6th Avenue SW, the Port of Seattle is holding an update for the community on the Sustainable Airport Master Plan. The Port will discuss potential near-term projects to meet future regional demand, long-term vision (beyond 2027), and how to get involved in the scoping process for environmental review.

Wireless Communications Facilities. At last Thursday’s Planning Commission Meeting, the Commission completed the public hearing on staff-proposed Development Regulation Amendments (City File No. DRA18-001), relating to Small Cell Wireless Communications Facilities (WCF). After deliberating, the Commission adopted a recommendation to the City Council, that the Council approve (with minor modifications) the development regulation amendments proposed by staff. The City Council will hold a first reading of the ordinance adopting the regulations at the Tuesday, June 12 City Council meeting. Small cell WCF is an emerging technology that is just being rolled out throughout Puget Sound. The City is currently reviewing a street franchise request from Verizon Wireless to install such facilities – mostly on existing Puget Sound Energy utility poles – at 20 locations throughout the city. Likely, other carriers will approach the City for similar agreements. Our agreement with Verizon will set the pattern for our agreements with carriers in the future. The City Council will take final action on the proposed development regulations. These regulations, once adopted, will replace interim development regulations adopted by the Council in late 2017.
