Great streets must work both day and night: public lighting has a decisive impact on the vitality and sustainability of walkable neighborhoods, particularly in enhancing the value of street-level retail. New LED technology, coupled with informed lighting design, gives developers, owners, and public agencies a powerful new place-making tool, and is also leading the adoption of smart city technology. But in order to maximize its benefits- reducing energy use, increasing retail sales and property values, and improving safety – decision makers need more information and better design guidelines.

At this event you will meet our panel of world-class lighting designers and others involved in public lighting, and see examples of new LEDs street lamps. You’ll see how recent projects like St. Louis’ Citygarden (winner of ULI’s 2011 Open Space Award) provide solid data on the positive impact of lighting in urban revitalization. You’ll learn how to improve lighting practice inside your organization and with adjacent properties, neighbors and regulators. You’ll learn how new lighting technologies and design improve sustainability, public health, and quality of life in our cities.
