SUBJECT: Thank You for Your Responses to our Campus Lighting Survey
Facilities Management would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide
feedback to our Campus Lighting survey. As mentioned in the survey, around a
dozen people from Facilities Management, Housing and Dining Services and Vice
Chancellor for Administration Frank Bruno went on the annual campus night
lighting walk. We took with us comments from the survey and paid close
attention to areas we heard multiple concerns about. There were some areas
identified where we found some extra lights would indeed make a positive
difference. Here are some areas we heard comments on and identified the problem
and areas we plan on adding lights to in the upcoming months:
1. Areas around Kittredge Pond. The lack of lighting in this area was due to
construction in the area. A splice made by the contractor was not waterproof
causing the breaker to trip. This has since been fixed, and special attention
will be paid to any lighting affected by construction in the future.
2. Crosswalk just north of Kittredge West. There is a portion of the
walkway which was not sufficiently lit. A light will be added here.
3. Add light at southwest corner of Regent building.
4. The corner of 18th and Colorado. This crosswalk is well lit on one
side, but will receive an additional light on the Norlin side of the street.
5. Add lighting at crosswalk on north side of Macky, just west of Sewall
6. Additional lighting to the bridge on Stadium Trail along Boulder Creek.
Again, thank you for your feedback. Joe Branchaw, our campus electrical
engineer, is working on design of these lighting improvements and
implementation of these will take place in the next 3-4 months. We are
hoping these improvements will be noticeable and will help people feel comfortable
walking on campus at night time.
