January Land Use Hearing update
Thank you to Supervisors Wiener, Kim, Farrell, and Avalos for their leadership, calling for a hearing on the progress of AT&T’s Uverse utility box project in January.
The room was filled beyond capacity with neighbors who were frustrated and angry at this process. Thank you for sharing your stories and for demanding change!
According to DPW’s report on Uverse boxes,“Graffiti is the #1 complaint…another consistent concern is trash and blight…”
- The cost of graffiti clean up to taxpayers each year: $20,000,000
- 2000 objections from neighbors on the installation of AT&T’s boxes in 2013.
- 112 comments and suggestions were submitted from our community on how to improve the process
Land Use Committee Chairman Supervisor Wiener heard your complaints, and now we’re working with his office to fix the process, but we still need your help!
Please help us keep the pressure on by writing to your Supervisor. Share your stories about Uverse and ask for their help in keeping our streets free from blight.
