311 User Unhappy With Light Pole Installment

“36 cubic foot obstruction at one of the city’s most travelled and already congested pedestrian intersections. Why is the city letting Extenet make such ill informed placements? Should also be the black historic type pole.”

  1. I could not believe it when I saw them installing this “light pole” monstrosity in literally the most pedestrian crowded corner in probably the entire city of Boston. And there is one 1/2 a block down in front of the library. How can it possibly need to be in that terrible location???

  2. These things are being installed everywhere- yet when I’ve asked for new trees or trees to be replaced I’ve been told the sidewalk is too narrow. These boxes aren’t ADA compliant and I think could be easily fought.

  3. No to mention that now there are the old cement post AND the new monstrosity right next to each other. Hopefully the cement one is scheduled for removal…….

  4. They appear to house electronics in the base. It has been speculated that they are monitoring cellular and wifi. The “pole” between the light fixtures is an antenna.
