Seattle City Light to dispose of 7 old substation properties, including 1 in Phinney Ridge, public meetings with details Nov. 6 and 16

Seattle City Light plans to sell seven old substation property sites it no longer needs, including one in Phinney Ridge. The other six sites are in Ballard, Crown Hill and North Beach. State law requires City Light to get fair value for the sites.
The Phinney site is at 6109 Phinney Ave. N., next to Gibran clothing boutique and close to Sully’s Snowgoose Saloon. The 6,000 square foot site is zoned Neighborhood Commercial 2-40 feet. (City Light’s surplus property webpage says the City’s Office of Housing has expressed an interest in the Phinney Ridge property to build affordable housing, however, the site is still open for public comments.)
City Light will host a community information meeting at 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 6, at Ballard First Lutheran Church, 2006 NW 65th St. to answer questions, followed by a public hearing at 7 p.m., to take testimony about disposition alternatives. If you’d like to email your comments about any of the sites or ask to be notified of actions taken on the site, email [email protected].
Detailed information about all the sites, including maps and pictures, is here.
