And, if you can say, what was the outcome of the hearing?
The person who lodged the complaint about the surface mounted facility (cabinet) did not come to the hearing. And, two of our customers did, which was much appreciated. The department of public works also received a few emails from customers expressing support too.
The alternative locations are poor; one doesn't offer adequate clearances under ADA, another would require trenching up a street which was just resurfaced and under a five year moratorium, and the third presents a vision obstruction near an intersection. For all of these reasons, and the participation (or lack of participation), I'm hopeful that this will be approved.
We will now await communication from DPW on their decision.
