QUESTION 1 -- Latrobe, PA
Posted in the Latrobe Forum
#1 Feb 17, 2013
I was in Latrobe yesterday, and drove from downtown west on Lloyd Avenue to Route 30. I wanted to see the "decorative lamps posts" the have caused such a stir.
QUESTION 1 -- Who are the geniuses who approved the decorative lamp posts without FIRST putting all the above ground utilities underground?
In other words:
Why are the ugly telephone poles still linging Lloyd? one cannot even recognize anything pretty with telephone poles and wires and transformers! Doesn't anyone in Latrobe "think" about anything?

QUESTION 1a --Why were trees planted -- before -- the utilities were put underground?
There go the trees!

OMG. How were you NOT consulted? And your vision come so CHEAP.
(The utilities have been been buried and the poles just need to be removed.)

So all those poles are coming down? Why are the wires and transformers still hanging?
Well, MOZ, if all the utilities are underground, and the trees and light posts go on top, that makes sense.
Hey, I give my thoughts away for free. There's not much more to do anymore with Latrobe, other than toss out ideas to the people who are there, and wanting to turn around a dead downtown.
I've driven lately through many small towns in Central PA, and I was aware of those historic lamp posts in those towns -- and none had telephone poles. So, of course, I almost died with I saw Latrobe's lamp posts -- alongside the ugly telephone poles.
Glad you corrected me. Now I can sleep better.
