City of San Antonio Council Decides on LED Lights for Holiday Season
Aug 19, 2011 It has been reported that the City Council of San Antonio has approved the plan for LED lights to be used along the River Walk this holiday season.
“It’s about enhancing the No. 1 tourist attraction in the state,” said deputy city manager A.J. Rodriguez, adding that the plan received no opposition at the meeting.
The plan includes replacing 85,000 incandescent multicolored lights with 1.76 million LED lights. The LED lights will be wrapped around tree trunks and will be used to illuminate the 19 bridges in downtown.
It has been said, that the City will hire Boerne-based Preferred Landscape & Lighting to execute the plan. Although, at the request of the San Antonio Conservation Society, the bridge portion of the plan will be reviewed by the Historic and Design Review Commission and Public Art San Antonio.
The city also paid local artist Bill FitzGibbons $18,000 for designing, supervising and programming the LED lights, River Walk proposal. Rather than go through the RFP bidding process, the city issued a discretionary contract because it was on a time crunch, Rodriguez said.
