Sturgis considers downtown lighting project

A proposed lighting project in downtown Sturgis has been brought back to the forefront.

Sturgis Community Development Specialist Jeff Coney recently presented details for the proposed project to the Sturgis City Commission.

The Sturgis Downtown Development Authority and some interested downtown business owners have been investigating a project to light downtown Sturgis buildings over the last few years.

Through investigating the proposal, the DDA looked into several options to support the project with grant funding, leading to an expansion of the scope of the project around a theme of “The Electric City.”

The core of the project encompasses more than 2,900 linear feet of LED lighting highlighting the skyline of the downtown along Chicago Road.

The creation of an “Electric Alley” behind Five Lakes Coffee is also being considered, providing new outdoor seating areas, lighting attractions between the neighboring buildings and a public art installation.
