Lighting

Putting lights up in Post OfficeWe are currently researching better lighting options for the downtown area, which may improve visual aesthetic as well as safety. Possible New Initiatives include Bed Races (who remembers those in town?), recycling & painting.

Have you noticed the festive lights at the Post Office and in other local businesses? In an effort to light up the village area, the BEC has been donating lights to property owners along Main Street. We are also in the process of researching more permanent lighting in the downtown area. Improved lighting will give the Historic Downtown area a warm, inviting feel and improve the safety and visibility of the area. Interested in getting involved in this initiaitve? Contact us.
