DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Public Lighting Authority has scheduled a series of community meetings to update residents on the city's plan to fix and turn on thousands of broken streetlights in their neighborhoods.
The first of three meetings is Wednesday at Christ the King Parish on Grand River Avenue.
Another meeting is scheduled Thursday at WOW Church and Life Center on East Seven Mile Road, while the third will be held at the North Rosedale Park Community House on Scarsdale Street.
Each meeting begins at 7 p.m.
The lighting authority currently is installing LED lights in two demonstration areas. Lights are expected to be updated in all city neighborhoods within 18 months.
The authority says it plans to make sure an overhead light is at every street corner in Detroit.
