Pardall Street Lights

About half of the 44 new street lights have been installed with about 12 of them energized at the corner of Emb del Mar. These will replace the 6 lights that were previously along Pardall Rd with the new lighting being more appropriate to a pedestrian and bicycle oriented downtown and creating a safer place for all at night.

Each light utilizes the photo-sensor that tells the light to turn on at dusk and turn off at sunrise. Some of the electricity to run the lights will be generated by the solar panels to be installed as part of the Alumni Corner Solar Car Park (Northeast corner of Pardall and Emb del Mar) going to construction this Spring/Summer.
