9:30 AM: The big, bright lights at West Seattle Stadium have been on all night, since last night’s Seattle Prep-Bainbridge football game, neighbors say, shining right onto nearby apartments, including the one inhabited by Gordon, who wrote, “We’ve been up most the night, plus I can’t imagine the energy this is wasting.” We don’t know if this was intentional, accidental, or the result of a malfunction, but the WSB’ers who reported it say they tried to call Seattle Parks – and no response yet. We don’t have after-hours numbers, but are trying several channels, after going by the stadium to check it out firsthand (our photo was taken a short time ago – 9:18 am). Our photographer did find a Parks employee at the stadium who said he didn’t know why they were on nor how to turn them off, but would make some calls.
9:09 PM: Almost twelve hours later, they’re still on – we took this photo a short time ago:
One commenter notes they’re usually on a timer, so wonders if it was a malfunction, rather than a mistake. And someone who refereed last night’s game says they were off when he left the stadium.
11:59 PM UPDATE: Went by again ten minutes ago – the lights are now off.
Sorry, comment time is over.
