PG&E and PAUSD Resolution
PAUSD is pleased to announce a successful resolution to negotiations with PG&E over a proposed easement at the Cubberley site. We sincerely appreciate the mobilization of our community, including 3,500 petition signatures and powerful comments. Ultimately, PG&E listened to our position and changed course in the interest of our district and those served at Cubberley.
PG&E Vice President of Gas Transmission Distribution Construction, Peter Kenny, was instrumental in the process and offered the following statement, "PG&E is committed to providing safe and reliable natural gas service to its customers. After gaining a better understanding of the Palo Alto Unified School District perspective, we reached mutual agreement to seek an alternative location for PG&E's gas transmission pipeline inspection project. We appreciate their partnership and look forward to continued collaboration in the future.
The agreement to terminate pursuit of property at the Cubberley site resolves the issue fully and allows PAUSD to focus fully on the work of returning students to in-person instruction.
