Airport Communities Coalition (ACC)

Discussion:

The cities of Burien, Tukwila, Des Moines, and Normandy Park formed the Airport Communities Coalition in 1993 to stopped the proposed construction of the third runway. The coalition was eventually expanded to include the Highline School District and the City of Federal Way. The group used lawsuits and appeals to contest studies and permits. The effort was abandoned when the State Supreme Court ruled against the group and allowed an environmental permit to stand.
