LED Streetlight Project Goes to Council on July 20

If you want to know more about new streetlights to be installed throughout the City, then mark your calendar for July 20th at 5:30 p.m. That’s when the LED Street Lighting Project will be presented to the Goleta City Council for final approval. City Staff will be requesting authorization to purchase light fixtures and begin the streetlight conversions.  The plan is to replace more than 1,300 High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlight fixtures throughout Goleta with new energy efficient LED streetlights.

The community had a chance to hear more about the project and ask questions at a virtual Town Hall meeting on June 22nd.  The two-hour interactive meeting started with a brief presentation, and was followed by an extensive Q&A session discussing the light color, brightness, shielding and more.

The City website has been updated to include a copy of the presentation, as well as a transcript of the Q&A. Learn more at www.CityofGoleta.org/LEDStreetlights and watch our video on the project here.

Please contact Project Manager Michael Winnewisser at (805) 690-5120 or mwinnewisser@cityofgoleta.org for any questions or additional information.

The project team wants to thank all of the participants for joining in the discussion for this important project!  We hope you will watch the July 20th Goleta City Council meeting to learn more and see what Council decides.
