AMP to Hold Town Hall on Underground Utility Districts
ALAMEDA, CA -- The city of Alameda’s program to move overhead utility lines underground is the focus of an upcoming Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) town hall meeting. AMP, which administers the city’s undergrounding program, will host a town hall for the public on Feb. 28 at the Alameda Main Library.
AMP is making progress in its planning to move overhead utility lines underground in certain districts. In the coming months, the technical advisory committee for the undergrounding program is planning to recommend that the Alameda City Council move utility lines underground in the following areas:
-- Along Otis Drive from High Street to Broadway Street including streets south of Otis Drive (i.e. Pearl Street, Versailles Avenue, Mound Street, Waterton Street and Court Street); and along Broadway Street from La Jolla to Encinal Avenue.
-- All Webster Street crossings from Taylor Avenue to Buena Vista Avenue including Eagle Avenue, west of Constitution Way; and along Central Avenue from Eighth Street to Webster Street.
Final decisions to identify underground utility districts have not yet been made.
