Background:
This project aims to increase public safety (including pedestrian safety) and improve Vallejo’s image by increasing nighttime visibility.  The downtown lights provide an aesthetic boost.  LED light emit stronger light and provide energy savings of up to 50%, providing benefit to both residents and the City.  Installing street lights where none exist also deters criminal activity.
