Options debated for new Rossford street lights

ROSSFORD, OH (Rossford Record Journal) - Rossford citizens are being asked for their input on three options for new street lights in the downtown area.

City Administrator Ed Ciecka unveiled the three designs at the August 10 meeting of Rossford City Council.

The city has received a federal stimulus grant of $263,000 through the Toledo Area Metropolitan Council of Governments (TMACOG), and the new lighting must be installed by February 2010.

Mr. Ciecka encouraged residents to express their opinions on the street light designs.
According to Mr. Ciecka, there are four goals for the new street lighting project:

  • to improve the ambiance of the downtown corridor during the day,
  • to illuminate the corridor at night,
  • to distinguish the corridor from residential areas of town, and
  • to develop a consensus on going forward with a conceptual master plan for the downtown.

Tucker Fredericksen and Nicole Miller of the engineering firm Mannik and Smith are assisting with a master plan.
