Mayor Hogsett speaks at announcement on June 9, 2016

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –Mayor Joe Hogsett wants to bring a little more light to Indianapolis, and today he announced his plan for doing just that.

It’s part of what he’s calling Operation Night Light – an initiative to install lights in urban areas that don’t have them.

In the first phase of the Operation Night Light initiative, 100 new streetlights will be installed in the areas that need them most. Hogsett specifically mentioned areas near schools and churches. The mayor’s call center has been receiving suggestions for locations, and they will continue to take people suggestions throughout the next month.

The first phase will require no additional tax dollars thanks to a partnership with Indianapolis Power & Light.

“No longer will we allow criminals to lurk in the dark shadows of our neighborhoods,” Hogsett said.

When asked when these 100 streetlights will be installed, his response was, “Sooner rather than later.”
