This holiday season, you may have noticed that light-projected snowflakes have replaced the multi-color holiday lights that typically hang from the Veterans Memorial Building’s 122-foot tower, located at the corner of Culver Boulevard and Overland Avenue. The change is the result of the City’s commitment to keeping our community safe for all, including City staff.
Recently, the City engaged a registered structural engineer to evaluate employee safety while hanging the lights. Completed on December 12, the engineer’s report found that the current safety measures are not sufficient for preventing serious injury or death to city staff. The City will evaluate the cost, timeframe and skills required to ensure a safe installation before determining whether the traditional lights will return in the future.
We know our community will miss the traditional lights (we will too!), but we hope you enjoy the new decorations and have a happy and safe holiday season.
