Fight utility box blight

Posted Friday May 20, 2011 by admin

At&T wants to put 726 refrigerator-sized utility boxes, for free, on our public sidewalks.

An ugly private use of public space

The San Francisco Planning Department wants to exempt these from the California Environmental Quality Act.

We want our Supervisors to ask for an Environmental Impact Report (EIR).

On Monday, May 23 at noon, we will join SF Beautiful on the steps of City Hall to call for an EIR. A full EIR would reveal the impacts of AT&T’s proposed project and offer alternatives.

Please contact your Supervisor to ask him or her to vote to require an EIR for AT&T’s placement of 726 cabinets in our public right-of-way.
