LED lighting demonstration on display at Cerritos Sports Complex through January 15

January 2, 2018

A street lighting demonstration is currently available at the Cerritos Sports Complex through Monday, January 15. The display is located in the area southeast of the Cerritos Sports Complex building. Signs are posted to indicate the display area and to identify different lighting options. The community is invited to view the display and vote on a preferred lighting option to replace current residential streetlights throughout the City.

The City is exploring replacing High Pressure Sodium Vapor (HPSV) streetlights that currently exist in all residential tracts and arterial streets with newer Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. The options available vary in color temperature and light levels. Conversion to the new LED technology will result in a savings to the City due to reduced energy usage. The majority of the costs to convert the streetlights will be covered by Southern California Edison through an incentive program offered by the California Public Utilities Commission.

The public can submit votes at City Hall by completing a form and placing it in a suggestion box. Voting can also be completed through an online survey that can be accessed on the City's website at

The community may have an additional opportunity to view the demonstration and vote in early spring, when a similar display may be set up in a residential area yet to be determined. Upon conclusion of the public input period, the findings will be presented to the City Council for further direction.
