Denny Substation Project Nears Final Design Milestone: Public Hearing to be Held

The City Council's Transportation Committee will hold a public hearing on two topics related to the Denny Substation Project.

The final design of the Denny Substation is almost complete. We need to take just a few more steps before we can move ahead with construction. 

 

The City Council’s Transportation Committee will hold a public hearing July 30 on two topics related to the Denny Substation Project.

 

STREET VACATION

Oral comments will be taken on the petition by Seattle City Light to vacate (to acquire the public right-of-way) Pontius Avenue North between Denny Way and John Street in the South Lake Union Urban Center area of Seattle. The vacation is proposed to support the development of the Denny Substation.

 

LAND USE

Oral comments will be taken on the Master Use Permit, which would allow for the construction of the Denny Substation in a Seattle Mixed Use Zone.

The final design of the Denny Substation is almost complete. We need to take just a few more steps before we can move ahead with construction.
