Seattle City Light Denny Substation EIS
We worked with Seattle City Light to develop and implement an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)-focused public outreach program for a new electrical substation, transmission line and network distribution system serving South Lake Union and the surrounding areas. We engaged diverse neighborhoods and business interests, including targeted outreach in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District where most people speak languages other than English. We facilitated working sessions with multi-lingual community liaisons and translated key information to ensure neighbors were adequately informed to participate and provide comment on the Draft EIS (DEIS). For the DEIS hearing and Final EIS (FEIS) release, we developed press releases, official notices, display ads, postcards, presentations and exhibits that described the EIS process, outlined alternatives and detailed anticipated environmental impacts.
