Chino Hills Power Line Battle – YouTube

Chino Hills, California residents continue to battle Southern California Edison’s plans to build a 500 kilovolt power line right through their community.

Hope For The Hills has recently released this great YouTube that is a “must-see”.

Assemblyman Curt Hagman’s Assembly Bill 2235 recently failed, but he and residents are not giving up their battle (Contra Costa Times). Bill 2235 proposed Chino Hills homeowners receive “compensation for any substantial reduction value of their property resulting from the building, expansion or operation of a plant, line, pipeline or other facility by a public utility.” Hagman said even though the Bill failed April 23 in the Utilities and Commerce Committee, reconsideration has been granted, allowing him to make some edits to the language of the Bill and to rally more supporters.

Hope For The Hills has advocated building the project underground or rerouting the line away from their community.
