Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with U.S. Utility Contractors for the Milo Grogan and Third Avenue Street Lighting Improvements Project (UIRF) in an amount up to $509,886.11; and to encumber funds with the Department of Public Service for prevailing wage services in the amount of $2,000.00, for Division of Power Capital Improvements Project No’s 440007-100013, 440007-100014, and 440007-100015.

The purpose of this project is to provide the Milo Grogan area with decorative and overhead LED street lighting on Cleveland Avenue between Third Avenue and the rail road tracks, Third Avenue between the Olentangy River bridge and Neil Avenue, and at various locations on Bonham Avenue, Olmstead Avenue, Starr Avenue and Dupont Avenue as per the requests of the community residents.

Community Planning Areas: South Linden (Milo Grogan) and Near North/University (Third Ave.)

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:
This work is being performed with the City of Columbus’s goal to light every street. The addition of street lighting within the Milo Grogan area could provide both a sense of security and additional visibility on the roadways. This may also deter criminal activity, which would lessen the financial impact on city resources such as the Police and Fire departments. LED lighting technology will also provide energy and maintenance savings.
