The Newcastle City Council is expecting a full house at its April 1 meeting, when it hosts representatives from Puget Sound Energy.

Puget Sound Energy will be on hand to answer questions about its Energize Eastside project. The project, in response to the region’s growing power needs, will bring new higher capacity electric transmission lines to the Eastside.

The new lines will extend from a substation in Redmond to Renton, but the exact route the lines will take is currently unknown. One of the proposed routes directly affects the Olympus neighborhood. Several residents plan on attending the April 1 meeting.

Also on the agenda is another discussion about marijuana legalization and its impact on the city of Newcastle. In December, the council decided against imposing a marijuana moratorium, electing instead to employ a wait-and-see approach when it comes to the drug.
