Utilities Undergrounding Program
On February 12, 2014 City Council approved Resolution R-308721 under Charter Section 43(b) to establish a Utility Undergrounding Advisory Committee to advise the City Council on (1) how the City may better implement the Program to minimize community concerns related to the installation of utility equipment, including above ground utility boxes, while undertaking undergrounding projects, and (2) how the City, community, and utility companies could improve communication in implementing the goals of the Program. The committee is composed of 14 members, with seven nominated by Councilmembers, appointed by the Council President and confirmed by City Council; and seven members from the private utility companies with two representatives to be designated by San Diego Gas & Electric, Cox Communications, and AT&T, and with one representative to be designated by Time Warner Cable. The Committee drafted a report detailing recommendations and improvements that could be made to the undergrounding process and the Committee was convened on February 20.
