Mediated Role Determination

Paine Field operates as a public airport in conformance with applicable federal and state laws and deed and grant restrictions. Snohomish County has guided the development and operation of Paine Field with a role adopted by county commissioners in 1978 and modified in 1979 by adoption of recommendations from a mediation panel. The combination of these two actions is referred to as the 1978/79 Mediated Role Determination or simply the Mediated Role Determination (MRD).

County Executive Aaron Reardon asked Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson and former Mukilteo Mayor Don Doran to co-chair a committee to review the Mediated Role Determination. Further information on the role of this committee and the composition of the panel is available here on Snohomish County's Paine Field Mediated Role Determination (MRD) page. The panel's final report on Mediated Role Determination for Paine Field was completed on May 16, 2007.
