Traffic, parking are already bad
His praises of the Bellingham Airport with all its wonderful conveniences makes me wonder why it would not behoove him to head north on I-5 instead of south to Sea-Tac. Or is that too inconvenient for him also -- it is about the same distance -- and as he states has good parking, quick check-ins, and is a short walk to the terminal. Still not good enough; then again, I think he is the type of guy who needs the airport in his backyard ... after all isn't it all about him.
I wonder if he has considered that with all the congestion already in the Paine Field vicinity, how long will it take before there is no parking, distant hikes from far-off lots to the terminal, horrendous traffic delays, long check-in lines?
Just think, if they put the airport in Snohomish where there is a lot of open space, then travelers from there could lighten the load on highways leading to Sea-Tac, which would open up more parking at Sea-Tac, and shorten hikes to the terminal while creating shorter lines at check-in.
I suppose the writer wouldn't appreciate the extra traffic congestion, noise, pollution, etc., in Snohomish and after all he is a taxpayer and we in the Mukilteo area aren't -- besides, why would we be dumb enough to build a home anywhere when we knew there were airplanes.
I apologize for our selfish attitude.
