After discussion and input from the community, BDC will be hanging new holiday lighting at the Bloomfield Bridge sign island. This display will keep the spirit of the holidays alive in Bloomfield, yet will be more affordable to maintain year after year. Installation of the decorations will take place on or around November 21.
Our holiday light fundraising efforts raised $2,562.27, all of which will be used to purchase and install lighting at the sign island. The cost of replacement lights for the entire business district is estimated at $19,000, and the yearly cost to hang and light them currently ranges between $3,500-$5,000 each year.
The BDC is grateful for all the support that we have received for the project. We look forward to a new tradition of decorating the sign island to welcome all to our neighborhood with a bit of holiday cheer.
