RTRP Transmission Lines Along River Vote

Attention Please Sign

 

 

 

 

 

URGENT City Council to vote on this TUESDAY Nov 15

We have a chance to get these underground!

New consultant finds it is AFFORDABLE!

Do you care about transmission lines being placed overhead at Hidden Valley and behind the homes of many Ward 7 residents?

Independent consultants have found that under grounding can be AFFORDABLE!  SCE said lines would cost ~ $57 million per mile;

Los Angeles and San Diego placed lines in a similar project for $11 million a mile.

Every rate payer in Riverside has been paying for these for 12/18 years on RPU bill (Reliability Project)…we have the money.  Also, consultants say grants are available to minimize the cost.

Speak Now! It is time to be heard!

Our City Council will be voting on this project on TUESDAY November 15th! What you can do:

  1. Write to EVERY council member and express your thoughts. You can address one email to all members and include the city clerk.
  2. You can call every council member NOW! You can THANK Councilman Hemenway for giving us this opportunity.
  3. You can attend the meeting and speak if you would like or support those who do speak. (I will get the time to you this week)
  4. You can call into the meeting, if you can’t attend, and speak

If you want these lines underground, NOW IS THE TIME to write, call and be heard! Here’s a link to make an e Comment for agenda Item #20

This is a critical juncture; you must speak up NOW!  We have a chance of under grounding based on the findings of the Independent Consultants brought in by Councilman Steven Hemenway.

Voters Edge is our online vote education site.  Voters can access their ballot – a good idea this year, with new state assembly districts nobody knows where they are or who’s running.  Also, find information about the candidates, detailed information about the state’s ballot measures, and current campaign donation figures – always good to know.

The Easy Voter Guide has quick facts on the election and the state ballot measures
