Guest Speaker: George Marquisos, Chicago Infrastructure Trust (CIT)

Led by the Chicago Infrastructure Trust, the City of Chicago has kicked off one of the largest municipal lighting modernization programs in the country. The Smart Lighting Project is an outdoor lighting modernization initiative designed to improve the quality and reliability of Chicago’s outdoor lighting. In addition to a large scale conversion of the City’s existing High Pressure Sodium lighting to LED technology, the project will include a lighting management system and targeted repair and/or replacement of poles and wiring to enhance system reliability. The project seeks to improve safety and quality-of-life in neighborhoods across Chicago by replacing nearly all of the city’s outdated and inefficient High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps. Additionally, the project anticipates improving the City’s responsiveness to outages with a lighting control network that will provide real-time updates when outages occur.

Join us as Chicago Infrastructure Trust Managing Director George Marquisos takes us through the design, bid, and build process and gives a general overview of the project.

Food and Drinks will be provided. Presentation will begin promptly at 6:30pm.

Free Parking will be available in the Focal Point parking lot. Check back later for final details.
