Stormy weekend ahead---
A few reminders:
The more reports of power outages in our area, the better PSE can assess, start prioritizing and working on fixing the problem.
Don't assume they know that power is out. Please call them to report so they can prioritize our street.
Now is also a good time to stock up on some basic supplies:
Think water, canned goods, granola and energy bars, protein shakes, beef jerky, PB&J,etc.
Stay warm, stay safe and please take a moment to check on your neighbors!
On behalf of residents wishing to participate in the Environmental Impact Study for PSE's huge transmission line through the Eastside (and many Bellevue neighborhoods), CENSE is sponsoring a petition: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/correct-flaws-in-the-energize-eastside-draft-eis?source=direct_link
Please consider adding your name RIGHT NOW, because the deadline for submission is Monday.
We only need a few dozen additional signatures to get past 500, and that would be a great indicator of the community's concern about a project that will:
* degrade our city,
* harm the environment (thousands of trees will be destroyed),
* bulldoze dozens of homes in Newcastle,
* increase risk of catastrophic pipeline fires,
* raise our electricity rates for decades.
There are better solutions to the Eastside's energy future that will deliver better reliability for less cost. PSE is fighting hard to build this project that will increase company revenues for 50 years.
