What about those power lines?

The Cal Poly Pomona 606 Graduate Studio explored this question in their 2011 “Re-envisioning Open Space” report.  Here is a summary of their findings:

  • The power corridors are underutilized.  “Southern California Edison (SCE), the local power corridor owner and operator, has an opportunity to continue to receive revenue from existing leases, but also act as a ‘good neighbor’…”
  • Opportunities abound to enhance the power corridors to improve recreational usage, habitat diversity, runoff water quality, community cohesiveness and increase property values.
