Letter: PG&E transmission line route ‘defies logic’ 

To the editor,

–PG&E has proposed routing of a new 70kV transmission line designated to be installed down the east side of Golden Hill Road from 46 East to Dry Creek Road that would run adjacent to our Circle B Springs HOA, the newly constructed Riboli Family Wines (San Antonio Wines) and the partially open Cava RV Resort. The proximity of the proposed 105′ above ground towers will run right down the newly installed east sidewalks which will require the city granting an easement and literally right on top of the Riboli Family Wine building. It will also require numerous shutdowns and/or removal of the various roads and sidewalks, along with fence and landscape removal, most of which have all been newly installed in the last year.

PG&E had three separate routes that were proposed with them selecting the Golden Hill route and subsequently presented it to the CPUC for approval. This particular route has more businesses and inhabitants than the other two proposed routes and as such defies logic.

As such, our community is planning on attending the meeting Tuesday, Aug. 7 to voice our opposition to this route in hopes of eliminating this choice. There are multiple interested parties that are questioning this selected route such as Riboli Family Wines, Cava RV Resort, the City of Paso Robles, Circle B Springs HOA and more.
