Placing power lines underground improves communities’ aesthetics and resiliency, reduces right-of-way tree-trimming requirements, and potentially increases property values. Are the benefits of underground worth the cost?
A community discussion on the prospect of undergrounding power lines is getting under way in Atlantic Beach, starting with a presentation by JEA at the March 28 City Commission meeting.
The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. in the Commission Chamber of City Hall. You also can watch it live or afterward at www.coab.us/live.
