Community input is needed as the City prepares an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate alternatives to reroute existing BNSF truck traffic in Allentown.
An EIS is a process to evaluate potential effects that a proposed project may have on the built and natural environment. The first step in the EIS is called scoping. Scoping is where we ask you to share your input on what issues and alternatives should be analyzed.
The formal EIS scoping comment period is from February 14th through March 15th. Formal comments can be provided by:
Attending our community meeting on February 28th from 5:30 to 7pm at the Tukwila Community Center (12424 42nd Ave S, Tukwila, WA 98168)
Submitting an online comment on the project website
Emailing a comment to AllentownTruckReRoute@TukwilaWA.gov
Mailing a comment to Mark Hafs
6300 Southcenter Blvd. Suite 200
Tukwila, WA 98188
(Formal comments must be postmarked by March 15)
You know your community best, and we need your help to better understand your neighborhood and the surrounding environment!
