LED Lighting Program

In late 2013, the City of Poughkeepsie began looking at LED Street Lights as a cost savings measure that could help increases safety while also being good stewards to the environment. This sustainable effort started with a feasibility study and moved to the project status after a lengthy review process.

The files and links below show the history and progression of the project. This page will be continually updated with the latest project information as it becomes available.
