Lights On in the West Ward
Help make the West Ward a safer, more walkable, and brighter neighborhood!
WHAT IS IT?
Lights on promotes safety and walkability in the neighborhood by encouraging residents to keep their front porch lights on from dusk to dawn on a daily basis. Side porches or entrances that face the street should be lit up, too!
HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED?
It’s simple! Sign up at one of our events. Get a free LED bulb and light sensor that automatically turns your light on and off when the daylight changes. Screw in the new sensor to your existing outdoor light fixture and change out your current bulb with the new, energy efficient LED one, flip your light switch to ON, and you’re ready to go! Remember to replace the bulb when it burns so we can keep the program going.
WHO IS IT OPEN TO?
All residents of the West Ward neighborhood in Easton. That neighborhood is from 6th Street to 15th Street, and Elm Street to the Bushkill Creek.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Get a 60W LED Bulb and Light Sensor FREE OF CHARGE from the West Ward Community Initiative. The provided LED bulb will last for approximately 11,000 hours or roughly 2 years when used daily from dusk to dawn. The estimated energy cost to your electric bill is approximately $5.40 per year; that’s less than 50¢ a month!
