Let’s make sure that all colonias have access to public light!

Buena_Fe_bus_cant_see_us_in_darkness_stock_no_petition.jpgToday, over 1,200 colonias in the Valley lack public streetlights. The insecurity caused by the lack of public light is uniting colonia leaders, community organizations and allies to desire a safer environment for our Valley colonias. The Public Light Campaign is about our human dignity, security for our kids, preventing crime and accidents, but most importantly providing a healthy environment for all colonia residents.

Petition Text:

We, the undersigned, believe that all colonias in Hidalgo and Cameron Counties, including colonias in the county and in the cities, should have public lights.

Petition will be delivered to:

Hidalgo County Judge
Members of the Commissioners Court of Hidalgo County

Cameron County Judge
Members of the Commissioners Court of Cameron County

City Officials of Hidalgo and Cameron Counties

    Pueblo de Palmas in Penitas Tx. I live here along with many families with young children. It’s very dark without streetlights and I think it would upgrade this area tremedously. The fresh air is wonderful and to be able to stroll after dark would be a highlight for myself and I’m sure many others in my neighborhood. I love my neighborhood altho it is underdeveloped, it is a family community and lighting would only help in securinge each other.

    I know many beautiful youngsters out on the miles, five- ten and Moorefield-Bentsen Palm Drive who would love to have lights; plus those of us who visit and serve them (school buses, delivery cars and trucks, medical providers, businesses, lawn maintenance people, etc.)would not have to crash so often.
