Most of the pedestrian lights in Wheat Ridge (except for the ones on 38th Ave. from Sheridan Blvd. to Harlan St.) are owned by Xcel. A few years back Xcel decided that flags, banners, lights, etc…could not be hung on the Xcel pedestrian lights. That has been a real thorn in my side and others since the pedestrian lights are in the public right-of-way and should be used for holidays and special events (flags, banners, lights, etc…).
Monday night (4/23/2015), City Council will be voting on a joint agreement which will allow flags, banners, lights to be hung on the Xcel pedestrian lights. Please see item #3 of the City Council. I will be supporting this agreement and making the Motion for approval. It’s good public policy and a win-win!!
