This picture was taken on a rainy day so if that affects how you feel about the picture imagine it is a bright sunny day. This is Sepulveda at Santa Monica Boulevard in West LA. Should these power lines be placed underground? Would placing the utility lines underground make this area a place worth caring about? It's a relatively inhospitable place for for anything besides automobiles, but it might be a good place to start. Maybe replace each utility pole with a tree.
