Comcast's 'small-refrigerator-sized' utility boxes are a point of contention among Georgetown residents.
Comcast, the District Department of Transportation and Georgetown neighborhood leaders are in discussions about the "small-refrigerator-sized" green utility boxes that have recently appeared on street corners in the historic district. At last week's Advisory Neighborhood Commission, Commissioner Tom Birch said the fact that the boxes appeared on street corners without any architectural or design review made him "livid." "This business is coming into our community and just making an aestheitic wreck of what we try to preserve in the historic district," said Birch last week.

Comcast utility boxes recently sprang up on Georgetown street corners.
Comcast's new green utility boxes "are sprouting like weeds" on Georgetown sidewalks and the Advisory Neighborhood Commission is none too happy. "This business is coming into our community and just making an aestheitic wreck of what we try to preserve in the historic district," said Commissioner Tom Birch who lives near several of Comcast's "small refrigerator-sized green boxes." Birch said the process has made him "livid" because not only were the boxes not reviewed by the ANC for design, but the construction hours have been "flat out illegal" at times by his estimation. Birch said he has heard work at 5:30 a.m. and even at 10:30 p.m. on a weekend night. One neighbor said the "icebox-"sized installments appeared without notice, even …
