Cleveland’s “Safe Smart CLE Initiative” is a massive project that will call for the replacement of 61,000 street lights throughout the city, but some believe more input and thought is needed.
City leaders said the 25 million dollar project will also include the installation of up to 1000 video cameras at an additional cost of 6 to 7 million dollars.
Cleveland Chief Operating Officer Darnell Brown told News 5 the project could get started as early as this fall, with tests on video systems continuing this summer.
Brown believes the LED project will improve public safety, reduce electric costs 35 to 40%, make maintenance response much more efficient and integrate computer controlled lighting and video systems
