PSC Rejects Burying The Lines
March 1, 2013, the Wisconsin Public Service Commission made a decision to
support the American Transmission Company’s recommendation to put transmission
lines overhead in our 95th Street neighborhood along Highway
our neighborhood’s best efforts, which included an aggressive legal and public
education campaign, we were unable to convince state regulators to bury the
lines. While we are disappointed, we are also incredibly thankful to those who
took time to send emails, write letters, make calls or show up at the many
hearings and meetings to voice an opinion.
are thankful to everyone who stood with us in this effort, including neighbors,
Milwaukee Montessori School students, parents and faculty, St. Therese Church,
Alderman Michael Murphy, Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee County Executive Chris
Abele, the Milwaukee Common Council, the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors
and We Energies.
