Hi Firstly thank you for everything that you for the Lakewood community. I am writing on behalf of my 13 year old daughter. She volunteers for a program that takes care of special needs children. On Friday night after shabbos begins, she picks up a child from his home walks with him to a program where they have fun play games and give the families much needed rest. She then drops him back off at home and walks home. This entails her crossing the tracks between whispering pines lane and twin oaks multiple times. She tells me that each Friday night it is so pitch black, and so scary for her and the boy that she watches to walk by. She’s asking if there’s any way that more lighting can be put up since it is a place that many people walk through all the time. She feels it would be much safer with more lighting.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Thank your daughter for the wonderful work she is doing.
I have asked Public Works to look into adding some lighting there.
UPDATE: Good morning,
Public Works will be adding some new lighting to the area this week. We are looking for a way to bring power to the area so we can set up a camera.
