Street Light Survey Gets Results

Streetlightby Sally Maulsby

Thanks to the many Bolton Hill residents who helped MRIA with their recent Lighting Survey to inventory our neighborhood street lights. The survey identified 18 street lights that were out or needed attention. Councilman Eric Costello has been notified and we should soon see more glowing lights on our streets.

If you notice a street light is out, please Contact Obie Chinemere in Councilman Costello’s office and give him the location. Office: 410-396-4816, Cell: 410-446-7962, Email:

You can also report non-working street lights to 311. When reporting a lighting problem to 311, make sure to note the tracking number of the report, which can be used to follow up with the Councilman’s office if it’s not fixed. Be as specific as possible when describing locations to Obie or 311 to ensure an adequate response.

The lighting committee and Councilman Costello’s office have been considering what can be done to improve the lighting at several neighborhood intersections and Sumpter Park.
