As the big meltdown continues … here’s more of what’s happening later today (besides what’s already been mentioned in our morning post-snow coverage):

Those are some of the trees at the former Dakota Substation on Genesee Hill, decorated last weekend as a show of support for the West Seattle Green Space Coalition‘s campaign to get Seattle City Light to save the site greenery while figuring out the site’s future (along with eight other ex-substations, mostly in WS). The next WSGSC meeting is this afternoon, Mary Fleck reports:

Snow adorns ribbons on trees at the former substation at 50th & Dakota St. Neighbors put ribbons on the trees last weekend to save them from cutting by Seattle City Light. West Seattle Green Space Coalition is meeting today, Sun. Feb 9 at Delridge Library at 3:00. The public is invited to join in planning ways to find the best future uses for the old substations.

The library is at 5423 Delridge Way SW.

  1. I’m unable to attend the meeting today but wanted to express my support. I walked by the Dakota station and thought how wonderful it would be to have a little park which would be across the street from the new school to be built. That will be a busy street soon and extra open space would be great.
