LETTER | Full Environmental Study Should Be Required For Seaplanes

I am very worried that the proposed Seaplane Airport at Carillon Point will significantly and negatively alter this serenity.  My office is in the South Lake Union area, and I am very familiar with the noise from seaplanes.  This is not a big deal in the SLU area…as it is mostly commercial.  But for a mostly residential area like we have surrounding Carillon Point, it would be bad.  No one wants to listen to loud seaplanes coming and going…
