In 2013, the transferrance of the Mukilteo Tank Farm to the Port of Everett is expected to be complete.
With Washington State Ferries (WSF) selecting the locally preferred alternative (Elliot Point 2), the U.S. Air Force begins its Environmental Assessment on the transfer of the property to the Port of Everett. The transfer is expected to occur in early 2013.
Development of a multimodal transportation hub, including parking and transfer stations for Sounder train and bus service and the Washington State Ferries (WSF), will follow.
In March 2012, the Port Commission reaffirmed its long-time position to not make development plans for the balance of the Mukilteo Tank Farm site in advance of the selected ferry terminal option. It did, however, set four goals with respect to the property. They inlude:
Retain road and utility access to Mount Baker Terminal
Ensure public access to Edgewater Beach
Secure a property swap with WSF for the land under the Mount Baker Terminal
Ensure old "government pier" issues are resolved.
WSF is expected to release its final EIS in early 2013. It will address all public, agency and tribal comments.
The Air Force Environmental Assessment will also be conducted. Once complete, the transferrance of the property to the Port can take place, along with the preparation of a design and construction of a new transportation hub for ferry, bus and train service. At that time, Edgewater Beach will also be re-opened to the public.
