Protecting Habitat on Airport Property
Procedures to implement the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) as it applies to Port of Olympia property were approved by the Port Commissioners on 9-28-2015. These procedures improve the comment and appeal process for environmental advocates. Citizens will now have fewer hurdles to clear, as well as more time and a clearer process if and when there is a reason to pursue an appeal. BHAS worked with the Port Commissioners and staff in an ongoing effort over the past two years to help seek these SEPA-related provisions that protect wildlife and that are more equitable for citizens.
