Farrell, Chui Undergrounding

The San Francisco Coalition to Underground Utilities (see News Briefs, last issue) met with Supervisors Mark Farrell and David Chiu, plus their aides, on Sept. 9 to discuss efforts to complete the half-done job of moving the City’s mesh of overhead utility lines underground. According to the Coalition, Farrell “made very clear” that the advocates of undergrounding would need to show support from residents throughout the City before he would approach his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors. The Coalition is therefore making an effort to “get into the neighborhoods and rouse awareness and support, which is something we have already begun,” the Coalition reports.

The Coalition will next meet at 2215 Leavenworth Street, on Thursday, Oct. 24, 7–8:30 p.m. For more information, see
