mrfootball Posted March 16, 2006 Share Posted March 16, 2006 (edited) Interesting discussion the other day on the radio about how Harris County gives utilities companies a free pass to junk up the aesthetics of our city in not requiring them to bury power/cable/phone lines like other cities do. Imagine how much nicer the streetscape would be if we didn't have millions of miles of overhead wires and poles crisscrossing our streets?I've heard people (utility advocates) say that in Houston, they can't do it b/c of the soil...I think that's BS...they do it here in Longwood and in many other master-planned communities. It makes a real difference.Obviously, you couldn't do this all over the city, and it would take years to begin seeing the difference, but why wait? Why not start requiring this of all new projects?Has there ever been any proposals to force local utility companies to begin burying their lines?
