Westinghouse Street Lights Update – James provided the latest update.

Jim Biancolo is still working out the particulars with Speclines and Jeff Vincent at DPW. The reflector and light cover will be larger but all other design will be accurate.

More information is called for now than was recorded when the Historic District was established in 1979 and many property surveys were recorded.
