Building Under Power Lines

Big story in the Sunday Los Angeles Times (free registration required) on the change in Southern California Edison policy regarding building on power line right of ways.

Oddly, however, a project under power lines in Rosemead (on Valley, west of Walnut Grove) is still proceeding. Our city manager’s opinion? The story reports:

The plans "weren't denied, they weren't approved, and what that means is open to interpretation," Chi said. "Given that lack of clarity, given all of the input, the decision was made here at the city level. We felt it was appropriate to move ahead with that project."
