Warrendale to get new streetlights in 2014

According to a plan unveiled earlier this week by the Public Lighting Authority of Detroit, the Warrendale neighborhood is scheduled to get new streetlights next year. Other parts of the city will have a longer wait ahead of them. However, Warrendale and the surrounding neighborhoods will get new street lights in 2014.

There are several blocks in Warrendale where the street lighting is spotty at best, including one block that never had streetlights installed in the first place. All of this is in addition to the problems with streetlights along W. Warren Avenue, which is the main commercial thoroughfare for Warrendale.

My one hope is that state and local officials also do more to target metal thieves who steal the copper wiring from theses street lights, rendering them inoperable. That, however, is the subject of another blog post.

For the time being, I'm simply glad to know that the Warrendale neighborhood will finally get new streetlights within the next year.
