Seattle Seeks Cruise Terminal Input

The Port of Seattle is seeking input on a proposed cruise terminal at Terminal 46.

The public will have until 4 p.m. on Nov. 13 to weigh in on the proposal, which calls for the development of a new 29-acre cruise terminal that would meet the growing demands of the port’s cruise business.

A pair of EIS Public Scoping Meetings/Open Houses, which will provide an opportunity to hear more about the project and weigh in on its potential environmental impact, are scheduled for the coming weeks. Feedback will be gathered and considered for the project’s SEPA analysis.

The first meeting will take place on Nov. 4 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the King Street Ballroom at Embassy Suites at Pioneer Square, 255 South King Street in Seattle, Wash. The second gathering will be on Nov. 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at The Foundry, located at 4130 1st Avenue S in Seattle.

Written submissions can be sent by email or mail to Laura Wolfe, Port of Seattle, Pier 69, 2711 Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA 98121.

Stakeholders can also go online to the Terminal 46 Cruise Development website at and click “Participate” to provide input.
