Explanation

 

1. BACKGROUND:  This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with Danbert Electrical Corporation for the Mock Road CIP 440007-100016, North Central Standard Street Lighting Project (Sunbury Road) CIP 440007-100018, and Innis Road CIP 440007-100019 Standard Street Lighting Project; in an amount up to $393,806.99 for the Division of Power.

The work to be performed encompasses street lighting improvements on Sunbury Road (various areas from Woodward to Mock), Innis Road (From Sunbury to Farmington), and Mock Road (from Sunbury to Bar Harbor).  These improvements will include the installation of new overhead LED lighting, as well as the conversion of existing High Pressure Sodium luminaires to LED on existing poles. 

This work will occur within both the “Northland” (#35) the “Northeast” (#41) planning areas. 

 

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:

Addition of lighting, in conjunction with upgrading existing lighting to LED within the project area, will provide both a sense of safety and security to the residents.  This may also deter criminal activity, which would lessen the financial impact on city resources involving assistance from Police and Fire departments.
