Our overburdened and ugly Utility Poles

The condition of many utility poles in our neighborhoods is deplorable and reason for concern. As Con Edison keeps adding more wires and boxes to the poles the weight is obviously too much. Storms have also added to the danger.

In many areas of our community, Con Ed has added another pole right along side of the existing one. The dangerous and unsightly poles have added to the outcry to bury utility wires underground.
