The Proposal
A group of Kensington residents has proposed that residents tax themselves to save the neighborhood’s historic street lights from being replaced with generic ones.
Why They’re at Risk
The city plans to move the neighborhood’s electric lines underground and replace street lights as a part of that. But it can’t pay for the more expensive historic lights, residents have been told they must raise their own money if they want to save them.
The Bigger Picture
The effort highlights one of the many small ways that the city’s budget woes are threatening the unique fabrics of the city neighborhoods and leaving residents to stitch them back together.
