The New Canaan Chamber of Commerce has launched Phase III of the Village Lampost Program in order to revitalize New Canaan with new lampposts throughout town.
With 75 already installed on Elm and Forest streets, the third phase of the project was to complete Main Street as well. Outlets near the top of the posts will also power New Canaan's downtown holiday lighting each December.
Several individuals and organizations contributed $4,000 for a lamp, which was adorned with a permanent brass plaque recognizing their donation. An anonymous donor wished to have a lamppost in honor of the ABC Program.
