Discussion items to include: 
BEX update
Program placement update
Governance priorities update 



A constituent asked me to spread the word on the City’s plan for a new substation to serve South Lake Union. I am particularly concerned about the power lines being near the Gatzert playground areas in light of the storm damage on the East coast last week.  I encourage you all to read the attachments and comment as you believe necessary.

As you may know, Seattle City Light is in process of building a new substation to bring more power to South Lake Union.  The less preferred option is to run 100 foot aerial towers with high voltage wire down 14th Avenue, by Seattle University, the juvenile detention center, Bailey Gatzert school, and the heart of ‘Little Vietnam.’

I have attached a local architect’s concerns .  If you have not already commented and would like to, please know that comments must be received by Nov 7, 2012, 4:30pm. to email comments.
