Valley Area Code Overlay Up For Vote

A new area code for the San Fernando Valley goes before the California Public Utilities Commission next week for approval. A recent judicial decision recommended that the 747 area code be assigned only to new telephone lines in the Valley, rather than forcing half the area’s residents to switch their existing numbers, the Daily News reported. If approved by the California Public Utilities Commission at its meeting next week, the new area code would go into effect in fall 2009, the Daily News said. Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said her office also had asked the PUC to study the impact the change would have on businesses and residents in the Valley and what would be the least costly option, the Daily News reported. “To date, I don’t believe we’ve seen the results of any kind of review that would demonstrate what is going to be the best for the Valley,” Greuel was quoted in the Daily News.
