Some in the Snohomish County community are concerned that the Regional Air Service Report might replace the MRD document as the expression of the County’s intentions with respect to development of Paine Field.
The MRD panel was convened to conduct an open, transparent, community-based dialogue. The panel’s mission is to review the 30-year-old MRD document and update the role of future air service development at Paine Field. Former Mukilteo Mayor Don Doran and Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson agreed to co-chair the MRD panel, which represents the disparate views of the community. The panel will study current factual information as it relates to the MRD document and recommend policy decisions regarding the MRD.
