Light the Block - Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week

One of the many things that I love about Detroit is many ways that ordinary Detroiters find to solve everyday problems as a community. Cherry Selene and his Light the Block initiative is a perfect example of this.

When he noticed how dark his block was for pedestrians walking by, he started attaching motion-activated lights to wooden posts - the perfect thing to give light to pedestrians walking by. The lights themselves are powered by solar panels that charge batteries during the day.

Additional information about this project can be found on the Light the Block's Facebook page, which can be found here.

It has been too long since I've declared anything to be the Cool Warrendale Thing of the Week. Regardless, Light the Block is one of those things that warrant bringing this feature back.
