Council approves lighting for Buchanan Park area

This article, from July 11, has details on improvements to pathway lighting in the Buchanan Park area.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

At the July 9 Council meeting, councillors voted to approve spending $180,000 to install lighting structures along eight pathways within the Buchanan neighbourhood.

For more details, please continue reading below…

The original impetus for the lighting structures came after Buchanan residents brought concerns of inadequate, unsafe lighting along Buchanan pathways to the attention of Councillor Danko and the Ward 8 office.

Through that community engagement, Councillor Danko requested City staff to look into the matter.

In response to that request, City of Hamilton Transportation Operation & Maintenance, Transportation Engineering, Street Lighting has performed feasibility and work assessments on the 8 different pathways in question in the Buchanan Park area.

Councillor Danko told the Hamilton News that staff have created a lighting plan that will include connections to an existing electrical system and that the response to the lighting plans were well received.

The eight pathways that will have the new lighting poles, expected to be installed this year, are Laurier Avenue to Delmar Drive; Laurier Avenue to Collier Crescent; Delmar Drive to Collier Crescent; Laurier Avenue to Algoma Crescent; Leadale Place to Mohawk Road West, Verona Place to Columbia Drive; Geneva Drive to Columbia Drive, and Delmar Drive to Geneva Drive.

The $180,000 funding will be taken from the Ward 8 special capital reinvestment reserve account.
