In a July post, we told you about FPL’s community powerpoint presentation and open discussion related to their project on Gregory Road (specifically the portion between Olive Ave. and Dixie Highway.) It was FPL’s intention to replace all the old wood poles with concrete poles. The July discussion focused on placement options, back of sidewalk or within the swale area.
FPL has now halted its work at the City’s request. See the note below for more info…
Florida Power & Light Company has been investing in new technology and grid improvements to ensure our customers have reliable electricity every time they flip the switch and that we can get your life back to normal faster when outages do occur. These improvements include installing new, stronger poles, which we are currently doing along Gregory Road. At the City’s request, we have halted this work to address the neighborhood’s questions about our improvements.
We invite you to join us and West Palm Beach City staff on Tuesday, September 15 at 6:30 p.m. at the South Olive Community Center, 345 Summa St, West Palm Beach, as we outline the benefits of these improvements and review the permitting processes necessary to complete the work.
We welcome your engagement and participation at this meeting. Please feel free to contact me at (561) 691-7048, should you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for your interest.
Director of External Affairs, FPL
While specifically directed at Gregory Road residents, anyone living in the South End is welcomed to attend.
