- BC Hydro
For Residents of 1177 Hornby St. "London Place" note the following reasons for removal:
1) Cost - Fee for BC hydro to cover or flag the power lines in order for window washers to clean windows. Fee has increased dramatically, and power lines do not serve the residents of 1177 Hornby.
2) Safety - People have climbed power poles to get to the top of the shared patio on the roof of 1177 Hornby. safety for both them and against theft. Also, safety for BC Hydro members who flag the power lines and safety for window washers of London Place.
For all buildings between the 1200 and 1100 blocks of Hornby and Burrard note the following reasons for removal:
1) Safety - Transformers have blown and have resulted in fires to the extent of fire department deployment.
2) The poles also narrow the alleyway resulting in garbage/Large trucks having a difficult time manoevering for daily activities.
We, the undersigned, call on BC Hydro to bury the power lines in the alleyway between Hornby and Burrard in the 1100 and 1200 block.
