New Plan to Bring Better and Safer Lighting to Downtown St. Louis

There is a new $4 million plan to make Downtown St. Louis safer, and it is not supposed to cost taxpayers a dime. For a while it was just a lot of talk, until Chris Sanna was shot leaving a Cardinals game in a poorly lit part of downtown. Now, the St. Louis Cardinals are helping lead a private effort to replace the yellow sodium street lights downtown with white LED bulbs for safety, and color-changeable LED strips on the arms for flair, similar to the blue strips on the street light fixtures at St. Louis University. Right now the color-changeable LED strips are set to glow red for the Cardinals, but they can be set to blue for the Blues, green for St. Patrick`s Day and every color in between. They hope to have all the lights downtown converted by the end of 2017. http://fox2now.com/2016/08/23/new-plan-comes-to-light-to-bring-better-lighting-for-downtown-streets/
