Pawnee-Daniels Park Transmission Project (Xcel Energy)
The Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCo/Xcel Energy) will be constructing the Pawnee-Daniels Park Transmission Project (power transmission lines) in their existing utility right-of-way, beginning in approximately February 2019. While this is not a Town of Parker project, a portion of the overall 125-mile expansion does run through the Town of Parker (see map). The project is expected to be completed and in service by October 2019.
PSCo/Xcel will be meeting with HOA representatives in July and August 2018 to provide updates and answer any questions from affected neighborhoods.
As part of the approval process, the Town advocated for PSCo/Excel to provide some community improvements to help offset the impact of the new transmission lines. Improvements, which will likely take place beginning in 2019, will include park enhancements and trail expansions in areas near the transmission lines, and limited landscaping improvements for directly impacted homeowners (these homeowners will be contacted directly with program details). Once final details about the timing and location of improvements are available, we will be sure to share those with the community.
