The Riverside Transmission Reliability Project: Ward 7’s residents should not have to face the eyesore of huge towers planned to go behind their homes and the impact on property values that the towers would cause. The project should be amended with either an alternative route or a plan to put the lines underground. While burying or rerouting the lines will cost extra initially, the Riverside Public Utility has over 300 million dollars in cash reserves and investments and is still raising rates. There is no reason that a public utility should not serve all the public’s interests in this project to meet both the city’s power needs and residents’ demands.


RTRP: Los residentes del Distrito 7 no deberían tener que enfrentarse a las enormes torres planeadas para ir detrás de sus hogares. El proyecto debe enmendarse con una ruta alternativa o un plan para poner las líneas bajo tierra. Si bien esto costará un costo adicional inicialmente, Riverside Public Utility tiene mas que 300 de millones de dólares en reservas y sigue aumentando las tarifas. No hay razón para que un servicio público no deba servir a todos los intereses del público en este proyecto para satisfacer las necesidades de energía de la ciudad y las demandas de los residentes.
