Save our Green Spaces, West Seattle
Our Seattle City Light Company is selling off nine abandoned substations in West Seattle as they are no longer needed. These substations have been abandoned for 20 years and they have large beautiful trees and shrubs, many over 50 years old that are very valuable both for their beauty and rarity. City Light wants to sell these locations to the highest bidder. West Seattle is experiencing significant high-density growth. This growth must be balanced with green spaces. We ask that no action be taken to dispose of these Seattle City Light properties in West Seattle until 2015 or such time as the community secures funding. It would be premature to dispose of these valuable green spaces until funds may be secured for future community, parks or other public uses of the space.
