City of St. Louis Begins Installation of New LED Street Lights
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 14, 2017 - To improve nighttime visibility and safety, the City of St. Louis Street Department has begun installing new LED street lights along major corridors throughout the City. The new lights provide more uniform lighting distribution, eliminating dark areas on the roadway between poles.

The City has secured a $1 million loan from the Missouri Department of Economic Development-Division of Energy, Energy Loan Program to purchase and replace nearly 5,000 light fixtures. The estimated annual savings from using high-efficiency LEDs is expected to produce more than $150,000 annually, allowing the City to pay back the loan in less than eight years.

In accordance with the City's Sustainability Plan, launched by Mayor Francis Slay, the new fixtures are expected to generate a minimum of 40 percent energy savings and up to 75 percent savings on street lighting maintenance.

"Nearly two years ago we began swapping out the old standard high-pressure sodium light bulbs for new LEDs as the bulbs burned out, but by replacing the entire fixture, we can save money, provide better lighting, and reduce our carbon footprint," Traffic Commissioner Deanna Venker said. "We're concentrating the first round of LED fixture installations on our high-volume arterial routes, starting with those in the City's PIER neighborhoods."

In the coming years, the City's Street Department will apply for additional loan funding to cover a mix of arterial and residential routes.

ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 5, 2017 - U City in Bloom will hold its Spring Plant Sale, April 28 - 30, at the Heman Park Community Center, located at 975 Pennsylvania.

The event, held annually on the last weekend of April, offers St. Louis area gardeners the opportunity not just to buy plants but to ask for advice from experienced gardeners and even credentialed horticultural experts. It's also a great chance to socialize with fellow-lovers of all things green. All proceeds go toward helping U City in Bloom create and maintain public gardens in University City.

If you've decided to "Go Native," this is the sale for you. Perennials donated from U. City gardens will be available in abundance, as well as some vegetables. Bright and beautiful annuals from the finest wholesalers will also be on sale.

The weekend starts with a Preview Party, Friday evening, April 28, from 5 PM - 7:30 PM. Tickets are $20. This is a great opportunity to shop ahead of the crowd while sipping a glass of wine or special cocktail and enjoying a spread of delectable appetizers. The public sale begins on Saturday, April 29, from 9 AM - 1 PM; and continues on Sunday, April 30, from 11 AM - 1 PM.

We will have a Plant Advice Table and a Roaming Expert - Especially helpful if you need advice on native plant selections. For additional information, call the U City in Bloom events line: 314-973-6062.
