The City has been working with Georgia Power to install additional decorative pedestrian scale lights, as well as LED flood lights attached to street poles, so that the wooden pole lights and overhead wiring can be removed. The final plan was approved and an agreement signed for the additional decorative poles. Currently working with Georgia Power on finalizing the request and time schedule for installation first quarter of 2019.

The City has been working with Georgia Power over the last quarter to develop a plan for additional decorative pedestrian scale lights, as well as LED flood lights attached to street poles, so that the wooden pole lights and overhead wiring can be removed. The final plan has been sent to the City and once approved it will take approximately 8 weeks for the decorative poles to be ready for installation. Also we have installed additional trash receptacles and wooden bollards along the sidewalk to restrict vehicles from entering the park area.

The Bee Road Walking Trail was officially opened May 31 with a sign unveiling ceremony. The City is looking to complete a few remaining items this year prior to closing out the project to include: remove the wooden pole lights in the field areas and replace with LED flood lights attached to the street light poles, add a couple more decorative pedestrian scale lights, and an additional trash receptacle towards the rear of the walkway.
