NEVADA CITY, Calif. March 7, 2017 – If you live anywhere near Nevada City then you are probably familiar with the terrazzo lights across Commercial Street; a very popular string of lights that zigzag from one side of the street to the other.
Historic towns like Savannah, Georgia, use terrazzo lights to embellish the pride and sense of place that ultimately enhances the overall experience of being downtown. We want to do the same thing in Nevada City, permanently.
While controversial to a few, theses lights have been overwhelmingly supported by the public. We removed these lights last October after a yearlong test pilot was completed. Since then the Nevada City City Council has unanimously approved a permanent installment.
It is the objective of the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and surrounding businesses and residents to get these lights installed permanently. But in order to do this we have a few steps we need to take in this process.
We can’t do this alone and many hands will make this affordable for all of us. Please help us light up our historic downtown by putting in permanent LED lighting. These lights create a sense of wellbeing, are popular with locals and tourists alike, and reduce crime in the area.
So, this is where you come in: A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to raise the $3,838 to purchase and install the lights!
Please check out the link, contribute what you can and know that every dollar counts, so please spread the word!
As soon as the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce reach our goal we will order the lights, assemble the parts and begin installation before spring is upon us!
Help Us Permanently Light Nevada City!!!
