Check back to this page for updates from NENC on the Cushman Substation at North 19th and Adams Streets.

What’s going on?

As part of Tacoma Power’s project to replace aging towers on North 21st Street, the utility disconnected the Cushman Substation from the electrical system in 2018.

Tacoma Public Utilities and the City Council are working together to establish a process for redevelopment of the two properties, and to determine an “acceptable, cost-effective future use” for the Cushman and Adams substations and surrounding properties.

In 2017, portions of both Cushman and Adams substations were placed on the Tacoma Register of Historic Places. You can read the Historic Register Nomination HERE.

How can I get involved?

A group of North End residents is working on community events and outreach. Keep an eye on this website and our Facebook page for updates and events.

And be sure to sign up for the Cushman interest list! We’ll share news with folks on this contact list, as well as events put on both by the City and in the neighborhood.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with outreach events and communications, following and sharing information on the public process, etc.
