Nature vs HYDRO - Save the Trees on Lundy's Lane
New Electrical Distribution Poles are being installed by Niagara Peninsula Energy as part of its 2011 Capital Works Program on Historical Lundy's Lane in Niagara Falls. Currently the area is serviced with an underground primary distribution network, which was installed in 1967.
In the process, concrete poles will now be visible above ground with trees on the Lane being severely and unprofessionally cut to allow electrical wires from the poles. The poles will be on the opposite side of the sidewalk, not near the road.
With the educated need to protect our environment, this is far from preserving green space.
Please sign this petition to halt the destruction of what, in some cases are 100 year old healthy trees, particularly ours, which will then allow an electrical pole to adorn the front of the building where we also live.
We all pay taxes, why is Peninsula Energy not accountable for destroying green space ? Their solution to plant 2 trees after destroying a 100 year old healthy tree is NOT acceptable.
These should be underground.
We ask Niagara Peninsula to find a more acceptable solution.
