NEW — 11:45 a.m. Aug. 17, 2015

If you want to get a seat at Tuesday’s Newcastle City Council meeting, you better get there early.

Puget Sound Energy’s Energize Eastside project is on the Aug. 18 agenda, and whenever that’s the case, it always draws a large crowd.

Puget Sound Energy and the Coalition of Eastside Neighborhoods for Sensible Energy will both give presentations about the proposed plans to include a new electric substation and higher capacity transmission lines through Newcastle, Redmond, Bellevue, Renton and Kirkland.

Those presentations begin at 6 p.m., an hour before the regular council meeting begins. Read more
