About the Commercial Aviation Coordination Commission
The CACC was created by the legislature to ensure Washington can meet future commercial aviation demands. The commission's recommendations are due to the legislature by January 2022. In addition to developing a recommendation for a new primary commercial airport, the commission will propose new ways to accommodate capacity needs at other airports. The commission will narrow down potential commercial airport sites based on previous research as well as factors such as airspace, local land use, environmental impacts, market demand and community input.
The CACC's 15 voting and 11 nonvoting members include representatives from the aviation industry, airport communities, freight industry, state and local agencies and elected officials. The Washington State Department of Transportation will provide the commission technical assistance and staff support from its Aviation Division.
