Mayor Gary Christenson joined Ward 7 Councillor Chris Simonelli and they surveyed the new LED lighting recently installed at Lincoln Commons on Cross Street. The project was initiated by Councillor Simonelli, who upon listening to his constituents realized that there was an energy efficient way to make the park safer and brighter at night. The 32 new globes were installed utilizing LED lighting, which will save the city money as well.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mayor Gary Christenson, Public Facilities Director Eric Rubin, City Electrician Frank Kelly, DPW Director Bob Knox, Controller Chuck Ranaghan, the Malden Police Department, and National Grid for collaborating on this project,” said Councillor Simonelli. “The lights in the park have not only made a positive difference for residents, but also for our environment.”
