I suppose so.  Thanks.

Personally, I’m against it.  But maybe they can at least  turn the brightness down.

Last night I drove down 10th street for the first time in a couple of weeks.  It strike me that the streetlights were much brighter than they were before. Can anyone confirm this?
For those of you who live on 10th, what do you think?  I find the glare annoying and I would hate to have that outside my window at night.  I just hope they don’t try to do it on my street.

Thanks,
Tom on 12th
