Linglestown Gazette: Officials mull streetlights for square redo

Officials mull streetlights for square redo

The planned square improvement project includes several elements aimed at sprucing up the look of the village. The technical term for these improvements is "streetscape upgrades."

The Village of Linglestown Committee, a township advisory group for the project, has had numerous discussions on the style of streetlights to place along Route 39 and at the two roundabouts.

Based on meeting minutes, the streetlamps most likely will be a Victorian gas lamp design that will be supplied and maintained by PPL. About 70 lights will be installed between Blue Mountain Parkway and Balthaser Street, and they will be set up to avoid excess light filtering into residents’ bedrooms.

The light style that will be used to illuminate the approaches to the two roundabouts has not been determined, but everyone who has a say in the project agrees that PPL's cobra head streetlight would not match the desired historic look of the square.

The township is willing to install and maintain specialty poles and lamps in the roundabouts, said Lower Paxton Township George Wolfe during a village committee meeting held in October.

Construction bids should be solicited in the near future. The project could break ground in March or April if the bids come in near the projected cost of about $4 million.
