Through the Utilities Undergrounding Program, approximately 30 - 35 miles of overhead utility lines are placed underground throughout the city each year.

In accordance with PDF icon City Council Policy 600-08 , every year the City Council approves a Master Plan that prioritizes projects within each Council District. The Master Plan is updated and approved by City Council each June.

Although the Master Plan sets out the order of undergrounding, the actual residential block boundaries may change due to design work, precise engineering, or available funding. The City reserves the right to make modifications to all block boundaries and plans.

The City Council may change the order of future undergrounding projects. All property owners, along with buyers and sellers, should be aware of this disclaimer.

To determine when your street will be undergrounded, you can use the Utilities Undergrounding Mapping Application, or call the Utilities Undergrounding Program Information Line at
