Public Meeting/Open House

Discussion of the Use of the Forks Municipal Airport

By West End Thunder for Racing in 2012 and beyond

18 January 2012

7 p.m.

Forks City Council Chamber

500 East Division Street

Forks, Washington 

Tenants of the Forks Municipal Airport, interested stakeholders, airport neighbors and the general public are invited to attend a public meeting/open house to discuss with representatives from the City of Forks the use of the Forks Municipal Airport by West End Thunder for racing in 2012 and possibly beyond.  At its meeting on 28 Nov 2011, the City Council voted to pursue an option offered by the FAA whereby the City would make a formal request to the FAA to temporarily close the Forks Municipal Airport to permit the continuation of motor car racing by West End Thunder in a manner similar to what has taken place at the Forks Municipal Airport.  This has consisted of temporarily closing the Forks Municipal Airport for approximately a 72 hour period over one weekend a month during the months of May, June, July, August, and September. 

Based upon the decision of the City Council to pursue this formal request for a temporary closure, the public is invited to meet with City officials and staff to discuss the issue of racing at the Forks Municipal Airport in 2012 and beyond.  Written comments can also be submitted by the public by mailing them to:  City of Forks – Racing Issue, 500 East Division Street, Forks, Washington 98331.  Written comments need to be received by the City no later than 18 January 2012.

Individuals needing additional information, or special accommodations in order to participate in this meeting, should contact Rod Fleck, Attorney/Planner, at 360/374-5412, ext. 245.
