Staff Presentation to the Board of Managers on December 10, 2012 regarding the status of the Village’s streetlight improvements, what has been done thus far, proposed next steps as well as an update on the status of LED streetlight technology.
Village LED Pilot Program Launched
In a continuing effort to improve the street lighting along Village streets and rights-of-way, the Village Board has authorized installation of LED streetlights as part of a Village pilot program to test the light output of this new technology.
Over the next couple weeks, PEPCO contractors will install twenty-three (23) LED streetlights along East Lenox Street, Grafton Street (between Cedar Parkway and Kirkside Drive), and West Kirke Street. As part of the pilot program the streetlights’ lens covers will also be changed along Grafton Street between Chevy Chase Circle and Cedar Parkway. The pilot program will install several different types/styles of LED lights to evaluate this new technology in hopes of providing the best available solution to improve the Village’s overall lighting.
A map showing the exact locations for these sample lights is available by clicking the first link on this page.
Your feedback is critical in evaluating the adequacy and appropriateness of this lighting within the community. Please provide your feedback by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your feedback along with an evaluation of the light output and dispersion will be transmitted to the Village Board with a recommended streetlight configuration for possible action in early summer 2014.
We thank you for your patience as we undertake this project to make the Village a safer community for all. Should you have questions regarding this pilot program, please contact me at (301) 654-7300 or email@example.com.
