On October 14, 2021, Colorado Springs Utilities removed four historic lampposts from the medians in the 1200 and 1300 blocks of Wood Avenue. ONEN immediately contacted CSU to return the lampposts. They are now in a known and safe place as we continue to work with the city towards their return to Wood Avenue.
Sign up here and join us for a January 16 (Sunday) Zoom meeting for the purpose of sharing information about the removal of the lampposts, the history of these beautiful lights, listening to concerns about what has happened, and discussing next steps to restore the lampposts to their original locations.
For an understanding of the history of the lights, read the in-depth analysis prepared by Jon Thomas here.
