Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello secured funding for necessary upgrades to the lighting in Christopher Morley Park. These environmentally friendly upgrades will both increase public safety in the park and energy efficiency.
“Energy efficient LED lighting will replace the existing outdated system.” said Presiding Officer Nicolello. “In addition to reducing operating cost, the new lighting will provide better illumination thus benefitting the users of the park by improving safety.”
There are many structural issues with the existing lighting system, rendering some areas of the park left completely in the dark, presenting a hazard for users. As part of the renovations, new light poles fitted with energy efficient LED fixtures will be installed.
