                      Competitive Evaluation Process (CEP) Food  1; CEP Food  2; CEP Food  3; CEP
                       Food  4; CEP Food  5; CEP Food  6; Request for Proposal (RFP) Food  7; CEP  
                         Retail 1; CEP Retail  2; CEP Retail  3; CEP Retail  4; and RFP Retail  5. This
                       authorization includes the removal of one unit, NS-2, from Lease Group 3 Food Service
                         Small Package 7 and insertion of that unit in Lease Group 4 RFP Food  7. 
                 Request document(s) included a Commission agenda memorandum, presentation slides, and
                   quality jobs memorandum of November 11, 2015. 
                    Presenter(s): Aviation Managing Director Lance Lyttle and Senior Business Manager Scott Van Horn. 
                    Mr. Van Horn summarized Commission guidance on the Airport Dining and Retail lease program and
                    presented the packages comprising Lease Group 4. Changes to the competitive evaluation of lease
                   proposals made since scoring of Lease Group 3 and including Commission direction were
                     summarized. These included disqualification of firms not fully compliant with back-wage requirements
                    under City of SeaTac Municipal Code Chapter 7.45 (City of SeaTac Ordinance 1020 or "Proposition
                    One"), revised evaluation of proposed wages and medical/retirement benefits, changes to scoring of
                    small  business  participation,  local  concept  preference  scoring,  and  labor  peace  agreement
                     requirements. Staff continues to propose the use of a competitive selection process. 
                 Commissioners asked about composition of the evaluation team and non-staff observers. There
                     was discussion on the degree of subjectivity involved in the bid evaluation process. 
                 Commissioner Albro offered an amendment to the proposed Lease Group 4 labor peace
                   requirement exemption as proposed in the staff presentation, to remove reference to small
                  business with 35 or fewer badged airport employees and to substitute the stipulation that small
                  businesses be exempt if they have up to two locations at the airport. He noted the prohibition on
                    franchisees of national brands would prevent the exemption from applying to Wendy's or
                 McDonald's. He added that the amendment would expand the exemption to existing small
                  businesses at the airport in support of other Commission priorities for the ADR program, such as
                      diversifying risk by incentivizing small businesses with more than one location at the airport. This
                     motion failed to obtain a second. 
                   The motion for approval of agenda item 6b carried by the following vote: 
                   In favor: Bowman, Creighton, Felleman (3) 
                   Opposed: Albro (1)

                       $800,000,000, for the purpose of financing or refinancing capital improvements to
                        aviation facilities and for the purpose of refunding certain outstanding revenue bonds
                        of the Port; setting forth certain bond terms and covenants; and delegating authority to
                        approve final terms and conditions and the sale of the bonds. 
                   Request document(s) included a Commission agenda memorandum and draft resolution. A copy of
                     the final draft of Resolution No. 3735 will be made available upon adoption. 
                    Presenter(s): Corporate Finance Director Elizabeth Morrison. 
                 Ms. Morrison summarized the relevant finance, policy, and tax restrictions applicable to the
                     $800 million in bonds, part of which represents new debt and part of which is refunding of existing
                   debt for debt-service savings of over $40 million. The bonds are expected to be issued within six
                   months. Commissioners commented on this being the Port's largest-ever bond issuance and noted
                      the large size of the airport capital investment it represents. 
                    The motion for approval of First Reading of Resolution No. 3735 carried by the following vote:

                   up to $200,000,000; (3) authorize Port staff to execute all change orders to the Hensel
                       Phelps contract within authorized budget and project scope without returning for
                        additional Commission authorization; and (4) authorize Port Construction Services to
                     execute small works contracts and use Port crews to support North Satellite 
                       construction (CIP #C800556). 
                  Request document(s) included a Commission agenda memorandum. 
                   Presenter(s): Program Leader George England. 
                    The Commission received a presentation summarizing progress on the project, indicating minimal
                     negative impacts to Alaska Airlines' operations, and explaining that the current authorization would
                    permit project work to continue on schedule until a maximum allowable construction cost (MACC)
                    and associated budget increase can be authorized in August. 
                   The motion for approval of agenda item 6d carried by the following vote:

                      6e.  Authorization for the Executive Director to (1) authorize additional design and project
                   management funds to expand the capacity of the baggage system at Seattle-Tacoma
                         International Airport to 60 million annual passengers; (2) use Port crews and small
                    works contracts to perform additional construction work; and (3) amend Service
                    Agreement P-00317641 to add $10,160,000 for a total contract value of $31,160,000 to
                        design this additional capacity. The amount of this request is $637,000 (CIP #C800612). 
                   Request document(s) included a Commission agenda memorandum and presentation slides. 
                    Presenter(s): Capital Project Manager Ed Weitz. 
                    Commissioners received a presentation that explained the need to accelerate the baggage system
                 work based on the current rate of passenger growth. Despite the need to increase design and
                     project management funding by $24,937,000, savings returned from phase 1 of $24,300,000
                  accounts for the current request of only $637,000. The total project budget will increase for the
                    accelerated capacity needs by a net amount of approximately $126,000,000. 
                   The motion for approval of agenda item 6e carried by the following vote:

                 6f. Motion to Be a Signatory to the "We Are Still In" Open Letter Declaring Our
                      Commitment to Reduce the Threat of Climate Change. [subsequently amended] 
                    Request document(s) included the text of the motion, an amended version of which is attached. 
                    Presenter(s): Commission Specialist Veronica Valdez. 
                 Ms. Valdez presented the text of the motion and the statement in support of the motion and
                      confirmed that as of today, the Port of Seattle would be the first port authority to endorse the letter. 
                  Commissioners commented on the port's environmental stewardship record and the business
                     benefits to reducing carbon emissions. 
              AMENDMENT 
                 Commissioner Felleman offered an amendment to the motion also to pledge support for the
                    "Climate Neutral Now" movement of airports striving to become greenhouse-gas-emissions neutral
                   by mid-century. The amendment was adopted without objection. The text of the motion now reads
                      as follows: 
                         The Port of Seattle intends to be a signatory to the "We Are Still In" open letter to
                       the international community and parties to the Paris Agreement declaring our
                         intent to continue to ensure the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing carbon
                       emissions.

                TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 2017 
                    We also pledge support for "Climate Neutral Now," an airport movement
                    sponsored by the United Nations. Our pledge would state that we will strive
                       toward greenhouse gas neutral emissions by mid-century, in line with our Century
                      Agenda greenhouse gas reduction goals, and that we will document our progress
                        through Airport Carbon Accreditation. 
                    A related amendment to the statement in support of the motion was included at this time adding "in
                    submitting an open letter" to the third paragraph of the statement. This text is present in the
                    attached adopted version of the motion. Commissioners requested interlineations to the version of
                     the We Are Still In letter prepared for their signatures acknowledging their participation as officials
                      of a port authority. A copy of the executed letter is attached as minutes Exhibit D. 
                   The motion of the Port of Seattle Commission to be a signatory to the "We Are Still In" open
                      letter declaring our commitment to reduce the threat of climate change, as amended,
                    (agenda item 6f) carried by the following vote:

                    7a. Port of Seattle's 2017 Affirmative Action Plan Briefing. 
                   Presentation document(s) included a Commission agenda memorandum and presentation slides. 
                    Presenter(s): Employee Relations Senior Manager Cynthia Alvarez. 
                    The presentation included information about the purpose of the port's Affirmative Action Plan as a
                      federally  mandated  process.  Ms.  Alvarez  explained  how  employee  demographics  are
                 benchmarked against local availability of qualified women and minority candidates. She reported
                      that placement goals have not needed to be set for the port for any of the last three years of
                     Affirmative Action Plans due to strong performance at the port in its efforts to employ a workforce
                     representative of the communities from which it recruits and hires employees. 
                  Commissioners discussed the need to continue to grow the pool of qualified employment candidates
                   from historically underrepresented populations. This was identified as an opportunity going forward,
                    along with continuation of compensation equity analysis and equity efforts and diversity and inclusion
                      training. Commissioners urged continued collaboration with other jurisdictions, especially in the area of
                      inclusion of women and minorities in career preparation in skilled trades. 
                     A recording of this part of the meeting has been made available online.

                     7b.  Ballard Locks Economic Impact Study Results. 
                    Presentation  document(s)  included  a  Commission  agenda  memorandum,  Port  of  Seattle
                    presentation slides, presentation slides by the McDowell Group, economic impact study report, and
                      Ballard Locks informational flyer. 
                     Presenter(s):  Maritime  Division  Managing  Director  Lindsay  Pulsifer  and  Charles  Costanzo,
                   American Waterway Operators. 
                    Commissioners received a presentation that described the history and economic importance of the
                    Hiram M. Chittenden locks located in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood on the Lake Washington Ship
                   Canal. Despite its robust economic impact, there is concern that operations and maintenance
                    funding by the Army Corps of Engineers is insufficient to properly maintain the asset and preserve
                       its regional benefits. 
                  Commissioners Bowman and Felleman moved as follows: 
                        That the Port of Seattle Commission take a position requesting federal funding to
                     address the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks' major, non-routine maintenance needs
                        and to authorize staff to advocate for this funding alongside other members of the
                      Lake Washington Ship Canal Users Group. 
                   The motion as stated above in support of federal funding for the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks
                    carried by the following vote: 
                   In favor: Albro, Bowman, Creighton, Felleman (4) 
                   Absent for the vote: Gregoire
