TO ALL PARCEL
OWNERS IN THE ABOVE-NAMED UNDERGROUND UTILITY DISTRICT:
The Council of
the City of Berkeley will hold a Public Hearing to take testimony and
to hear any protests on the proposal to amend Resolution No.
56,237-N.S. to include specific dates for utility companies and parcel
owners to complete their required work.
The Public Hearing will take place on Tuesday, June 14, 2005 at
the regularly scheduled meeting in the Council Chambers located at
2134 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, California.
specific dates for utility companies and parcel owners to complete
their work are as follows:
Telephone, Cable, Streetlight Design Start – October 2005
Telephone, Cable, Streetlight Design Completion – September 2006
Construction Start – October 2006
Construction Completion – May 2007
Construction Start – June 2007
Completion – January 2008
Conversion Work Start – October 2006
Conversion Work Completion – May 2007
map for UUD No. 47 is also being modified to include four parcels (063
297807600, 063 297807500, 063 297801200 and 063 297801100) on the west
side of the north end of Miller Avenue.
The four parcels are being added because it is impossible for
utility companies to underground one side of a street without
undergrounding the other side and removing the poles as required.
In August 2006
or September 2006, Engineering staff will mail out an informational
packet with requirements and specifications for the conversation work
on your property. The
conversion work does not need to be done at this time and it is better
if you wait for the Underground Utility District to be designed before
starting any conversion work.
For those parcels that have already done their conversion work,
PGE and Engineering staff will work with those particular parcels to
ensure they can be connected to the underground facility.
