Input needed on Seattle City Light’s 2013-2018 Strategic Plan
Public encouraged to attend meetings in South and North Seattle

SeattleCity Council Member Mike O'Brien, Chair of the Energy & Environment Committee, and the City Light Review Panel are seeking public input to help set the course for the future of Seattle City Light. Since early 2010, the utility has been developing a six-year strategic plan with guidance and input from the Review Panel.

“City Light has been around for more than 100 years and today faces some monumental decisions about how we prepare for the next 100 years. As a customer-owned utility, we need to hear from the public to help guide our decisions about energy efficiency, renewable energy, needed infrastructure investments, new technology, and most importantly for many of our customers, rates,” said Councilmember O’Brien. “These two public meetings in South and North Seattle are important for helping us gather some of this feedback and I encourage everyone to attend.”
