Bellevue Public Hearing
The Public Hearing on the south Bellevue segment was held March 28th to April 8th. After nearly 3 months of deliberation, the Hearing Examiner Approved the project. Information about his decision is here. CENSE is already working on an appeal to be filed by the July 9th deadline. For details about the hearing, including video, photos, and the complete CENSE legal notebook, see our Hearing Information Page.
Newcastle Public Hearing
Newcastle recently retained Synapse, an industry consultant, to perform an independent evaluation of the need for Energize Eastside. The consultant will also study the safety risks of installing large poles very close to 50-year-old petroleum pipelines located near downtown Newcastle and several residential neighborhoods. The results of the study were expected in March 2019 so they should be released soon. A recommendation by the city and a public hearing will follow.
Renton Public Hearing
PSE’s application to build Energize Eastside in Renton is on hold while a consultant evaluates the consistency of PSE’s permit application with the Environmental Impact Statement. A final report is expected in April. A recommendation by Renton and a public hearing will occur later.
