Lee Anne Schramel, also a member of the Greenville Streetscape Committee, said, "This is extremely disconcerting to learn that PG&E wants to cut the project in half. The community and valley need support more than ever before." PG&E didn't send a representative to the public hearing, which had been scheduled at the request of Frontier to discuss the situation. It was the fourth public hearing held in conjunction with the project. Schramel said that she would prefer to see Mill Street removed from the project's scope in favor of doing the portion of Main Street that hadbeen dropped. "The historic section wouldn't have a ghost of a chance ever again" if it's not done now, Schramel said. The public hearing was continued to Oct. 14 so that PG&E could attend the meeting and Frontier representatives could determine if they would be able to complete the Highway 89 portion of the project.
