In February 2009, Tacoma Public Utilities voted to surplus nine former substation sites throughout Tacoma/Pierce County. Followed by a post on FeedTacoma, community organizer Morgan Alexander asked Metro Parks to get involved in the conversation and contacted the TNT’s Kathleen Merryman who wrote a column on the story.

Now, the community is responding by organizing to take charge of the sites and re-use them for community gardens and pocket parks.
