Residents petition for buried power lines in Lake Lawsona Historic District


UPDATE: Click HERE to see the Historic Neighborhood Improvement Initiative Facebook page. 

A petition is making the rounds in the Lake Lawsona Historic District, to request that their power lines be placed underground.

Neighbors in the district are working with OUC and the City of Orlando to measure the interest to underground their utility poles. Once the petition has circulated the neighborhood, OUC will be conducting a feasibility study to outline what it would take to complete the project.

Most feedback in online forums has been fairly supportive, citing reasons like decreased power brown-outs during severe storms, less restrictions for increasing tree canopies, allowing for the planting of more trees along the right-of-way, and increasing home values.

There is no public timeline on this project.
