Council Members,

This coming Tuesday, Planning and Development Services plans to provide you with an update on the Gateway Pacific Terminal Project, and specifically the contracting and scoping process for the EIS.

There are numerous issues of concern with the approach taken by the Administration which I have detailed in the attached letter, along with some specific recommendations for direction to PDS. One of the more astonishing comments from PDS is that the County Council should comment on the draft EIS to help inform their final decision.

I urge you not to follow the recommendations and approach presented to you by the Executive and PDS. The EIS is meant to inform decision-makers and the public, and their approach thus far appears to be a private negotiation with the applicant.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Regards,
David Stalheim

Here is a link to an example of a full SEPA Scoping Document that spells out, not only what comments came in during the scoping process, but what will be addressed in the Draft EIS.
