Street Light Master Plan Project Meeting

 The City of Evanston will host a public meeting to discuss the Street Light Master Plan project at 7 p.m. on Nov. 1 in the Parasol Room of the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The goal of the Street Light Master Plan project is to develop a plan that identifies ways to meet the community’s future street lighting needs in a manner that reflects the community’s values as well as the context of the surrounding built and natural environments.

Since the last public meeting, the City has surveyed street lighting in neighboring communities, replaced light bulbs with LEDs on a trial basis at several Evanston locations, and completed a public survey regarding lighting level preferences. Based on these efforts and a review of existing conditions, a draft plan with conclusions and recommendations has been prepared. At the Nov. 1 public meeting, engineering firm Christopher Burke Engineering and City of Evanston staff will discuss the findings, share draft plan recommendations, and receive public input.

The City is seeking a plan that addresses the safety needs of all users of the transportation network; maintains infrastructure aesthetics compatible with the surrounding area; provides standardization to minimize inventory and maintenance needs; and is cost effective, energy efficient and curtails light pollution.
