FAIRFIELD — Habitat for Humanity wants to subdivide a lot where three new houses will be built and served by an above-ground power pole along Taylor Street.
New utility services are required to be placed underground unless the Fairfield City Council grants special permission. The city staff supports the request for the power pole, which Habitat and Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said is the only feasible way to serve the residences.
Habitat owns the 10,000-square-foot parcel at the corner of Missouri and Taylor streets. The two houses fronting on Missouri will be affordable while Hanley Homes will build the third, a market-rate residence fronting Taylor, Diane Agnone, executive director for Habitat, said in a letter to the city.
Fairfield City Council members take up the matter when they meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Civic Center, 1000 Webster St.
