Is one of these former substations near you? Seattle City Light meetings tomorrow & Tuesday

That map, first shown here last month after a presentation to the Admiral Neighborhood Association, spotlights nine Seattle City Light-owned properties from West Seattle to Burien to Seatac that the utility doesn’t need any more. Now the city has to decide what to do with them – sell them? transfer them to another city department? or? – and here’s where you come in: Two community meetings are planned in the next week for questions and comments.

First: To see the addresses, go to this page; click on any or all of the addresses on the left side of the page, and you’ll see photos/info come up on the right.

Second: If the Andover, Delridge, Dumar, and/or White Center (which is actually located in Highland Park) sites interest you, you’ll want to be at the meeting tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 21st) at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (4408 Delridge Way SW), 7-9 pm. If you’re interested in the Dakota, Fauntleroy, Ambaum, and/or Glendale sites, they’ll be the focus of a meeting one week from tonight (Tuesday, August 27th) at High Point Community Center (6920 34th SW), 7-9 pm. The city also promises a more-formal hearing in October in West Seattle, before the decisionmaking moves to another phase.

    Has the land been remediated? A lot of those old electrical installations had a lot of toxic chemicals used in them.

    How about no fee campgrounds, or even better how about “pay you to leave, no fee” campgrounds. I kid.
