The City of Tukwila is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate alternatives to reroute existing BNSF truck traffic in Allentown, and they’re holding a community meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. at the Tukwila Community Center.

“You’re invited to a community meeting to learn about the project, provide formal scoping comments, and stay informed on next steps,” the city said. “You know your community best, and we need your help to better understand your neighborhood and the surrounding environment.”

An EIS is a process to evaluate potential effects that a proposal may have on the built and natural environment.

The first step in the EIS is called scoping.

Scoping is where we ask you to share your input on what issues and alternatives should be analyzed in the EIS.

The Tukwila Community Center is located at 12424 42nd Ave South:
