After overwhelming input from the Palisades community, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has chosen two alternative locations for the temporary pole-top distribution stations.
LADWP announced on Friday, May 6, that it could construct the stations at Sunset Boulevard near Marquez Avenue and Temescal Canyon Blvd. south of Sunset Blvd.
The stations are intended to alleviate the frequent power outages experienced in the area, while a permanent station is being built.
Originally the stations were slated for construction on El Medio Ave., next to Palisades Charter High School, and Marquez Ave. near Marquez Elementary School.
At a March 14 community meeting with LADWP, residents expressed concerns about the safety of those locations and requested the department look into alternative sites.
Movement on the sites is underway and the utility company hopes to begin installation sometime in June, according to a statement released last week.
