Off Lake Info: Elevator Outage

If you access the Sea-Tac airport terminal from the Sound Transit 176th Street ‘kiss-n-fly’ passenger drop-off, please note that the elevator at this location will be out of service for an extended period.

The elevator connecting International Boulevard and the SeaTac/Airport LINK station is in need of major repairs and will close June 17th for two months. The stairs will remain open. For those with accessibility needs, a shuttle will run between International Boulevard and S 176th St. and the Arrivals loop of the Airport door 8. 

Shuttle Info
  • Catch the shuttle at the bus stop adjacent to the elevator at IB and 176th and at the Arrival Terminal at door 8 on level 3. 
  • Get shuttle status updates or stop location information call 360-543-9380.
  • Note that priority access to the shuttle will be given to individuals and parties with mobility devices such as wheelchairs, walkers, and crutches.
  • The Shuttle will be operated fare-free.
Or you may instead choose to purchase a one-way trip departing from the Angle Lake station to arrive at the Airport Terminal.

The elevator is expected to resume service mid-August. Updates on this improvement project, when available, will be posted here.

ALSC's April Double Header

The Angle Lake Shore Club kicked off the 2019 season with not one but two, back to back major events this year featuring the Easter Bunny Dock Hop followed by the Annual Community Social / Barbecue / Raffle also known as ‘The Fishing Derby”!

Easter Bunny Dock Hop
On the morning of Sunday, April 21st, Bruce Goulet and his volunteer crew escorted the Easter Bunny around the lake to preselected locations to present awaiting children with an assortment of Easter Goodies. 

Special mention of appreciation goes to Nancy Jones for her efforts in coordinating the Bunny appearance; Kerry Steinke for arranging the dock stops; Annie Goulet in helping to create the gift assortments; and to Tani Rae Standridge for capturing all the photos from the event – which can be viewed HERE.

ALSC Fishing Derby
With the promise to participants of not two, but three freshly flown Alaska King Salmon on the barbecue this year plus a treasure trove of prizes, the crowd count numbered over 180 participants this year! This is believed to be the largest draw to date! 

WA State Fish and Wildlife reported depositing a total of 5,500 catchable rainbow trout into the lake on April 1st (no foolin’ – that’s what they claim). However by the time the derby rolled around on Sunday, April 28th, the resulting four weeks in between allowed these newly planted trout enough time to locate their preferred hiding spot as less fish that is a typical count were brought in for measuring. 

Richard Rock (multi-year winner for the largest trout) was recognized as the first one to limit at 9:30 AM. Longest trout in 2019 was recorded at 12 ½ inches and was awarded to our new reigning champion Cris Pickett! Pickett was registered as part of the 1 to 8 year-old bracket so it seems he’ll have many years ahead of him to reclaim the annual title in the future.  This year netted Cris the $119.00 first prize.  Pictures of the event are available for viewing HERE.

Thank you to all who came out to participate in either event, we hope you had a wonderful time!

Getting Things Done Through Those You Know

We've all heard that it's often not what you know but who you know. And to get neighborhood issues resolved, that might be truer than you think.

There are plenty of smart people out there in the community however, no one knows city business better than the staff employed at city hall. But how are you supposed to know who within which department does what? You can certainly reach out to a member of the council however if it is not a topic of policy, they can only assist in directing your issue to those who have the responsibility or authority for administrative and operational issues. 

So how do you cut out the ‘middle man’? 

This is where the Community Leadership Academy comes into play with the opportunity it affords the participants to learn about how the city government operates. The academy includes presentations on topics including fire, police, parks, streets, city administration and much more, and more importantly, introduces attendees to the leaders who manage each of these departments. 

Exiting the program you’ll have a greater understanding of how requests can be made and know who you can direct your issues to in having them addressed.  

The City of SeaTac Community Leadership Academy consists of two sessions to take place from 9 AM until 5 PM on Saturday, April 27th and May 4th. The course is capped at a maximum of 20 participants to ensure a quality learning experience. Applications will be accepted up until April 15th and enrollment is awarded on a first come, first served basis until all seats are filled.
