Discussion: City Hall Parking Garage Lighting

 

Background:

The City Hall Parking Garage has had several light bulbs replaced as they burn out.  The original light fixtures are still in use, and they are being retrofitted with more efficient LED lightbulbs.  The original bulbs are 150 watt, metal halide bulbs.  The replacement LED bulbs only require 18 watts of electricity to operate at similar light level outputs.  A potential challenge with the current light fixture is the textured glass dome that goes over the bulb.  The glass dome dispurses the light from the LEDs in a different manner than from the metal halide bulbs. 

 

Currently the City is also upgrading the security cameras covering the garage.  The project will be underway this month and includes the addition of cameras and license plate readers to the garage.  The cameras will cover all portions of the garage and footage will be stored for 30 days.

 

This item will be a discussion over the lighting levels and general ideas to increase the light levels within the garage.
