Street lighting may be the most important, cost-effective measure in our neighborhood to improve safety. Adequate street lighting provides a significant number of essential benefits. It promotes security, it increases the quality of life in the community by artificially extending the hours for outdoor activity. Street lighting improves safety for drivers, riders, and pedestrians.

Nighttime illumination has many benefits beyond reducing the risks of accidents and injuries. We have a beautiful neighborhood and lighting enhances our impressive landmarks while adding ambiance and charm to our night time facades. People working the evening shift, students finishing up late at night, and neighbors just out for a walk are all subject to the risk of crime and violence. People feel uncomfortable if the lighting is insufficient.

Well, lit areas reduce the chances of crime, deter criminals, and boost the confidence of pedestrians. Lighting aids in geographic orientation and adds charm to our neighborhood while drawing attention to the uniqueness of the Central West End and promoting the pride of the residents of the CWE in their history while promoting a sense of community.  The economic impact of adequate lighting is assured. Better lighting makes safer spaces and creates spaces for interaction. It plays a vital role in community building while promoting access and inclusion.
