ACTION ITEM                            Date of Meeting       April 12, 2022 

DATE:     March 21, 2022 
TO:        Stephen P. Metruck, Executive Director 
FROM:    Jeff Moken, Interim Director Aviation and Business Properties 
Steve Kennard, Property Manager 
SUBJECT:  Adoption of Resolution No. 3800 to Convey Property and Permanent Easements to
Sound Transit 
Request Commission adoption of Resolution No. 3800: A Resolution of the Port Commission of
the Port of Seattle declaring surplus and no longer needed for port district purposes
approximately 2 acres of Port-owned real property, commonly referred to as the 28th Ave South
Parcels ("Parcels") located in the City of SeaTac, King County; and further authorizing the transfer
of approximately 4,000 square feet of said real property to the Central Puget Sound Transit
Authority ("Sound Transit") for development of a light rail elevated guideway; and further
authorizing the conveyance of permanent easements to Sound Transit on the Parcels that are
required for permanent construction of its elevated guideway. 
This is a multi-part request for declaration of surplus and conveyance of real property interests 
by the Port to Sound Transit. 
Surplus Property: The subject Parcels were acquired by the Port with FAA funding in 2007 to
mitigate noise impacts on residential property. Ten of the twelve acres of the combined area of
the Parcels were conveyed to WSDOT in 2019 for development of the SR 509 extension. WSDOT
declined to purchase the Parcels intact and instead purchased only the minimum land area
needed for constructing SR 509. Sound Transit also declined to purchase the remaining two acres 
that now comprise the Parcels and is requiring the Port to sell approximately 4,000sf of the 
Parcels. It is the Port's intent to declare surplus the entirety of the Parcels and to convey the
remainder (after Sound Transit's purchase) to a buyer as soon as reasonably possible and upon
approval from the FAA and authorization by the Commission. The Port has not identified an
aviation related use for the Parcels. 
Request for Conveyance: The sale of a portion of the Parcels and conveyance of permanent
easements to Sound Transit will accommodate the extension of Sound Transit's rail line from
Angle Lake Station to Federal Way. The elevated guideway which carries the trains will displace

28th Ave S and an adjacent public sewer to westward approximately 25 feet onto Port property.
If the conveyance of land and easements is approved, the displaced road will be built on the
acquired portion of the Parcels, and the sewer and guideway easements will permanently
encumber the remainder of the Parcels still owned by the Port. 
This action supports an important expansion of Sound Transit's regional rail system which is
responsive to regional governmental policy and voter approval. The Parcels were acquired for
noise mitigation and their disposal will include an avigation easement reserving the Port's rights
to operate the airport without obstruction and complaint. The Port has reviewed Sound Transit's
appraisal and agrees that the valuation is consistent with fair market value. 
Scope of Work 
Execute conveyance documents. 
Q2 2022 
No alternatives were considered since Sound Transit can require conveyance using its authority
of eminent domain. 
The Port will receive market value for the property sold, and compensation for permanent value
diminution resulting from the sewer and guideway easements.
