Districts 12 and 14 Design Plans

Southern California Edison, Spectrum, and Frontier have completed their design plans for Underground Utility Assessment Districts 12 and 14, and the design plans identify the locations of all planned infrastructure for Southern California Edison, Spectrum, and Frontier. This includes both above ground and subsurface facilities, such as vent pipes, vaults, hand holes and new marbelite street lights. The Notice of Public Meeting  (PDF) was mailed on May 20, 2019. A Public Meeting was held on June 11, 2019 to review the design plans with homeowners in Underground Utility Assessment Districts 12 and 14 in order to provide an opportunity to:
  1. Review the construction documents showing all infrastructure planned in the public right-of-way adjacent to each parcel;
  2. Verify the correct location of individual property service panels/meters;
  3. Verify the correct location of each utility stub out relative to individual property service panels; and 
  4. Comment on the proposed designs by sending an email to Anastasia Seims, the City’s Project Manager.  The comment period closes Friday, June 21, 2019.  All comments provided will be considered, and if appropriate, incorporated into the construction documents.

Boundary Maps for District 12 (PDF) and District 14 (PDF) and a  Map Legend (PDF) with associated definitions for the color coding included on the design plans are provided for reference.

Pursuant to the requirements of Proposition 218, construction will not commence unless at least 50% + 1 of the weighted return ballots from residents within each District are in favor of the assessment and the District is formed. Voting for the assessments will take place once the value to be assessed to each parcel has been determined and noticed to residents. This value will be based on the construction bids received using the final design plans, and is expected to be provided to the City by Southern California Edison in late June 2019.
