Underground Utilities Push

Calling city efforts to supplant its network of overhead cables and wires with underground systems a half-finished job that leaves San Francisco with a web of aging cables and equipment, the San Francisco Committee for Undergrounding Utilities is seeking support to finish the job. The group is rallying neighborhood groups, such as the Russian Hill Neighbors, to join its “Clean up the Mesh” efforts to get the City to fulfill previously established plans for these wires and cables.

As the Marina Times went to press, the Committee for Undergrounding Utilities was planning a June 27 meeting to build momentum behind this movement. See future issues for an update.
