A series of break-ins in the Denham Springs Antique District brought attention to a need for additional street lighting, not only to deter criminal activity, but also to make the Antique District more “night friendly” for evening events. The team responded by initiating and facilitating the installation of 9 additional street lights on North Range Ave. between Railroad Ave and Centerville St. The difference in the visibility during evening hours is significant and impactful. The team cut the ribbon on the project during the Brew Fest in Antique District, highlighting the impact of the project.
