Because I grew up in the Appalachian’s foothills and walked through the valleys and hollows, that I have a need or tendency to look up at what is around me and notice what others may not see. I notice things higher than the local traffic stop sign or stop light.
But as I look around the community and traveling on main and side roads, I am grossed-out at the use, or the abuse of the electrical easements.
Electrical Hanging Chad
There is a need to review the use and potential abuse of the hanging of technological wiring and miscellaneous wires on the easement wiring poles. Many are becoming an obnoxious visual mess which in many cases are detrimental to the community. With a potential for criminal activities accessing these lines, a serious disruption of critical services is possible.
Correction to remedy this mess of accumulating lines hanging from these poles is necessary. Specifically, when will too much weight or excessive amount of lines on these poles be acknowledged?
I would ask that the Administration look at the electrical line mess; if there are valid safety issues in areas noted along walks, paths, or through woods, back yards or along the roads, address those issues with the appropriate owners.
Thee is a need for line adjustment or relocation and a visual correction of low lines as well as cleaning up the mess of lines.
These pictures taken are only a few of the installations that need review, and there are many lines that go through trees, brush, hang over sidewalks and bike paths and follow the main roads and side arteries within the community.
Attention to detail is important. Obviously everyone wants a “community with character” to have character. Technological advances are necessary but certainly the easements should not look like a circuit-wiring board becoming a visual detriment to the community.
