This dedication will commemorate Tucson’s FIRSTALL SOLAR residential street light project. The installation of 43 solar-powered street lights along four corridors heavily utilized by those in the neighborhood, as well as a water harvesting runoff and collection system for natural irrigation purposes, and community artwork were a part of this neighborhood-driven, collaborative eff ort.

Funding for this project was provided by the Pima County Neighborhood Reinvestment Program, and was constructed by the City of Tucson Transportation Department.
