We are merchants, residents and landlords
We are children who love excitement
We are the not-so-young, seeking old-fashioned holiday cheer
We are parents, wanting to share the joy
We are shoppers wanting to enjoy the chores!
From around Thanksgiving through the entire winter, the new LED Lights will bring happiness to Greenwich Avenue several downtown side streets. They will be very energy-efficient and will be reused each winter.
During the daylight hours, Greenwich Green & Clean’s small army of volunteers has for almost 30 years created beautiful hanging baskets to decorate our streets, but from five p.m. on, the nights can be very dark and dismal as they were in 2014.
Greenwich taxes are comparatively low because of the generosity of public/private partnerships enable us to enjoy “luxuries” such as museums, hospitals, and musical events. Privately funded schools remove millions of dollars from our tax commitments.
The good news is that for the first time in Town history, the trees in font of the Senior/Arts center, the Havemeyer building and Greenwich Common will ALL be lit by Town crews.
Public/private partnerships enable us to enjoy “non-essential luxuries” such as museums, hospitals, musical events or even private schools, all of which makes Greenwich a unique town blessed with low Taxes. However, our very small, overworked Tree Department might be dealing with a major storm which could take priority over stringing any lights.
The good news is that the Tree crews have promised to hang lights on the trees in front of the Senior/Arts center, Greenwich Common and the Havemeyer Building. In the past, the Chamber of Commerce did not light these very central but non-commercial areas.
These trees can all be lit during the days by bucket trucks which do not have to be in the streets. Overtime costs for labor in the dark hours of the night will thus be avoided. It is a sad fact that Depression is at its most virulent during holidays. We all need light and cheer in the mid-winter.
