New Neighborhood Street Lights | Tree Pruning

Hello Neighbors,

As some of you may have already noticed, the City of Gaithersburg and Pepco have been recently been working to install additional street lamps throughout our neighborhood.┬áThe lights should be fully installed in the next week or so; and then it might be several more weeks before they are “powered up” by Pepco and become fully functional.

This is part of a $134,000 infill lighting project that the City of Gaithersburg approved back in 2014. When originally built, our neighborhood’s street lights were too far apart by modern standards. The City of Gaithersburg has funded this project at the request of the HOA to address that issue. The new lights will match the existing lights, and the additional light posts should make our neighborhood lighter at night, and safer as a result.

In addition to the additional lights, the City of Gaithersburg will also be pruning trees throughout the neighborhood as well in an effort to improve visibility and safety.

Thank you,
Glenn Watts
Board of Directors, Washingtonian Woods HOA
