St-George Square is about to become a little brighter. New Lighting systems are coming to the downtown core of Guelph next week. The aim by the city is to make the square seem a little more inviting and safer for downtown visitors. A total of 56 low voltage light emitting diode (LED) spot lights will be installed to ten new pedestrian light poles and eight existing street light poles along the northwest and southwest plazas and is said to cost about$76,000. The new lighting will improve energy efficiency and avoid construction in the downtown to replace underground infrastructure for standard lighting. The installation will be completed by June 2, and will not disrupt any access to downtown businesses.
