Off-Campus Street Light Repairs Jan. 15 - Aug. 11
Time: n/a
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Do you live in University Park and off-campus, and have nearby street lights that are flickering or out? We might be able to help you.

With the Lights Help Project, our purpose is to make University Park safer by repairing street lights, making it more difficult for knuckleheads to get away with committing crimes. We have a representative walk around the neighborhood 4-5 nights per week and mark out or flickering lights by wrapping a pink ribbon around the pole they're attached to. A report is then filed to Ohio Edison, and they typically fix the malfunctioning light within three days.

We also notify the City of Akron when something is obstructing lights, such as overgrown trees. They tend to remove the obstruction(s) in a couple of weeks.

You can be a part of this. We are always looking for volunteers to report whenever a light is malfunctioning near their homes. All the information we need is the approximate address and whether it's flickering, out, or if something is obstructing it. A representative will come out and look at the light and make sure the problem is fixed ASAP.

If you see something that needs looked at, contact us at lightshelp@gmail.com or call us at (330) 212-0241.
