These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

Burying the power lines will make that whole area look so much nicer.

Taking the cheap option of providing power from wooden poles is looking less cheap as more costly, deadly fires are being blamed on rotting poles and downed lines.

We have buried power lines and it is exceptionally good!

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Yeah I'm not looking forward to the process, but very much looking forward to the results.

Burying the power lines will make that whole area look so much nicer.

Do you happen to know if the street rehab will include and major changes? Like I recalling what they did with Cherry Street, moving it from 2 lanes on each side to one and adding the slanted parking. Is something like that happening in Brookside or are they just keeping the same configuration but repairing it?

It's also a bummer to hear that a few of the bigger developments are stalled, but hopefully they will get going again soon.

Other than power line burial, I donít know what theyíre planning on Peoria but Iíd be surprised if they make major changes to lane configurations - itís still a major arterial. But Iíve been surprised before.

I agree the slowdown is a bummer but it will come back. The property values are going up too fast.

We begged them to bury the lines on Cherry Street during the rebuild and they said it was too expensive. Glad Brookside is getting it, but what a waste to not do it on Cherry Street.
