In Case You Missed It...
Streetlight Conversion Project 

The City of Lebanon is currently working on a plan to convert all streetlights to LED fixtures. This conversion project, when complete, has the potential to provide significant annual energy and maintenance savings, to reduce greenhouse gasses and light pollution, as well as offer superior lighting for improved safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers. The first step in the conversion process is to identify and remove streetlights that may not be necessary. Learn more about this project and upcoming meetings.
