Why was the program revised?

In 2012, the Public Utilities Board recommended stopping work on underground utility district 31 and tasked Alameda Municipal Power with revising the undergrounding process due to concerns voiced by residents and Board members. The City Council accepted that recommendation at a Council meeting on July 7, 2012. Specific concerns included:

  • Customers were concerned about the out-of-pocket costs associated with undergrounding projects
  • The criteria for prioritizing a district were not clearly defined
  • Public participation in the program was limited
