Florian presented the lighting project which entails installing a permanent LED light structure system that delivers superior light control, is energy efficient, simplifies installation and ensures better reliability. He stated that the LED lights will not produce light beyond the area you wish to have lit, which will be a positive point. F. Weispfenning met with Musco Lighting and was impressed with the company and the quality of the lighting system. He also mentioned Musco Lighting is a co-op member. The approximate cost for the project is $400,000.00 total with no maintenance for 30 years and would take about two weeks to install. A proposal should be received from Musco Lighting by April 12th. The project will be financed by the Open Space Grant (letter of intent has already been submitted), money from the Open Space Trust and the sports organizations. It will need community support and there will be a public hearing.
