It seems we have plenty of information about transportation infrastructure, but lack data on more basic parts of infrastructure, such as the above. Generally, there would be one value per neighborhood or region. This should simplify finding a relevant grid for a given location (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 21:46, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

  •   Comment Thinking ahead to the concept of a water, electricity, gas, telecommunications, etc grid/network--perhaps a more generic "area serviced by infrastructure network" property could be proposed? Similar to the idea of highway system (P16) which is used for linking roads to road networks. --Dhx1 (talk) 23:05, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
    • Is there an advantage in combining them and making it multi-valued, with or without highway system (P16)? --- Jura 23:20, 23 February 2021 (UTC)
      • A combined field might be an advantage if we merely list the operator of (one or several) grids in an area (instead of an item about the grid itself as proposed here). Such an approach would be different from what is proposed here. --- Jura 21:59, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
    • If not, I'd keep them separate: modeling challenges might differ. BTW, for several aspects of telecom networks properties are already available. --- Jura 09:38, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
