We need more power. Hopefully it is not because of our bad PSE report cards!
There is currently a proposal for a PSE project to build new power transmission lines in North Rose Hill between the Sammamish substation and the Juanita substation. There is a final meeting for community feedback on Saturday 6/23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a presentation at 10:15 a.m. at Evergreen Hospital in the Surgery and Physicians Center's Room TAN 100/101 in Kirkland (12040 NE 128th Street). The route will be finalized by late summer with construction of the transmission line beginning as early as 2013.
There are 3 routes currently being discussed and two of them go through North Rose Hill. The third route goes down Willows Road in the commercial & industrial area. Many Kirkland residents are concerned about issues such as property values, health and safety. There is a project page that PSE has setup and a survey link (b/c it's not always easy to make those meetings).
The exact routes alternatives are here. A decision will be made in July, so if you are a North Rose Hill resident with concerns, now is your opportunity to be heard.
