Rancho Vistoso Boulevard Overhead Lighting Study – Update

Monrad Engineering Company presented a report at the February 16 General Board session on existing lighting conditions and considerations for the Board of Directors to evaluate and move forward on the study. Inspection of the circuit breaker boxes and ground level pull boxes found an array of mechanical/electrical problems as well as rodent infestation and most boxes packed with dirt. The inspection found 17 nonfunctional lights throughout the line. Monrad noted the current induction lighting is old technology, creating poor beam control and pronounced glare. The Board directed Monrad Engineering to address the current failed fixtures, plus clean out the boxes and upgrade the cabling to those pull boxes. In addition, Board approved to develop a photometric computer model that identifies the best LED lighting fixture and set up a 20 light demonstration project for residents to evaluate.
