Seattle City Light Hosting Meetings in Wedgwood on Surplus Property

Community Meeting: Tuesday, May 15th, 7PM at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church
Formal Hearing: Tuesday, June 12th, 7PM at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post inaccurately identified the location of two of the surplussed sites. The locations are correct as listed below.

Seattle City Light has numerous pieces of property around the City that are surplus and not needed, yet what to do with these properties and how to do it is often a challenging question for them.  One of these surplussed properties, the Morningside Substation at the NW corner of 35th Ave NE and NE 86th Street, is being acquired by the Parks Department for a new Wedgwood park.  However, there are five other properties throughout NE Seattle, including 2 more in Wedgwood and 1 in Ravenna-Bryant, that are surplussed (see below).

SCL will be hosting two meetings in Wedgwood over next two months on this topic.  The first meeting on Tuesday, May 15th, 7PM at Wedgwood Presbyterian Church will be to discuss disposition alternatives.  The second meeting will be a formal hearing on June 12th, 7PM, which is required before the Council can act on any of the alternatives.

The 3 surplussed properties in Wedgwood and View Ridge are as follows:

Wedgwood: 2321 NE 95th Street (across from Ryther)
