On December 2, PSE hosted the sixth and final meeting of the Community Sounding Board (CSB). This meeting’s focus was on gathering the CSB’s feedback on forward facing topics: the selected route option for the “missing link” transmission line as the project continues into engineering and design, permitting, and ultimately construction.

At the meeting, PSE staff also shared information about the community outreach process, PSE’s route selection criteria, and the benefits of the selected route – Route A. Following the presentation, the project team led a Q&A with the CSB in order to address their outstanding questions. Question topics included project timelines, tree removal, and community outreach. After Q&A with CSB members, staff opened the floor for public comment.

PSE would like to thank all of the hardworking members of the CSB who volunteered a tremendous amount of time, asked critical questions, shared perspectives and input and participated in the community engagement process. Their contributions were instrumental as we worked to incorporate the public’s feedback into the routing process!
