LED Streetlight Retrofits
Progression in LED lighting technology has made it affordable to use as source lighting and will reduce operating costs over the lifecycle of the streetlight. Since 2016, the City has a recurring budget of $22,000 to facilitate the upgrade of existing City streetlights with new retrofitted LED lamps. To date, the City has replaced City-owned streetlights on Highway 19A from the Englishman River to
MacMillan Street. The next phase of the project will place LED streetlights on Highway 19A from the Franklinís Gull/Highway 19A intersection to the Resort Way/Rathtrevor Road intersection and from McMillan Street to Bay Avenue. Each year, new areas to retrofit existing HPS streetlights to LED technology will be assessed.
To support transit users, the City implemented a recurring budget of $50,000 for supply and installation of transit shelters at key stops throughout the City. By the end of 2018 in coordination with RDN Transit, the City anticipates shelter installations; one adjacent to City Hall and a second on McMillan Street adjacent to the SOS Thrift Shop. Depending on location and cost of installation, two to four shelters should be installed each year.
