WE ASKED FOR LIGHTS, WE ARE GETTING LIGHTS!
LIGHTING TO BE INSTALLED THIS WEEK.
Posted by: Christina Pizarro
The West Downtown Neighborhood will have short-term lighting installed on the 100-200 blocks of West Haley and Gutierrez Streets and the 400 blocks of De la Vina and Bath Streets as requested and expressed by many West Downtown Neighbors at several of our West Downtown Neighborhood Group meetings and the Call for Safety and End to Violence Rally on February 28th. The new lighting is a short-term solution to remedy the lack of lighting at the blocks mentioned above. Long-term lighting is in the works, as the West Downtown Neighborhood Group has been granted a CDBG lighting grant in the amount of 50K from the City of Santa Barbara for pedestrian street lighting design. The long-term installation of lighting depends on available future funds. In the interim, the cobra lights attached to the brown Southern California Edison posts will shed light on our streets making us all see better and feel safer. Thank you Helene Schneider for your assistance. There there be light!
