Land Use Committee Supportive of Utility Box Legislation

utility_box.jpgThe Land Use and Economic Development Committee of the Board of Supervisors held a hearing on my legislation to improve the process for placing utility boxes -- like AT&T's U-verse cabinets -- on our city sidewalks. This legislation will -- for the first time -- put binding procedures in place to require neighborhood outreach, require utilites to allow artwork like murals on their boxes and place greening near the boxes, and make meaningful efforts to place the boxes on private property. Due to a noticing requirement the legislation needs to stay in committee for one more week. But the committee indicated support for the legislation, which will mean that the legislation will go before the full Board of Supervisors next Tuesday for a vote.
