    Light Pole Fixtures at West Hollywood Park Have Been Uninstalled for Safety Inspection

    - Advertisement -

    The light pole fixtures throughout West Hollywood Park have been uninstalled for inspection following safety concerns, according to representatives at City Hall. Some of the outdoor light fixtures appear to have developed cracks at the base anchoring the units to the ground.

    WeHo City Hall states that “out of an abundance of caution, the city, the manufacturer and the installing contractor decided to remove the light fixtures for a thorough inspection and evaluation. No timeframe for the reinstallation of the fixtures has been provided as of the posting of this piece. Temporary supplemental lighting has been installed throughout the park to ensure it remains well lit.”

    There are 41 light posts, but the City does not anticipate needing to replace the entire light post. Currently, the main focus is on the base anchoring units.

    Six light pole fixtures were also removed from El Tovar Place next the Aquatics and Recreation Center. Community members may notice orange City of West Hollywood cones screwed onto the ground where the fixtures were uninstalled for safety reasons.

    Two light fixture poles were broken during the installation of the OUTLOUD festival, which was part of the WeHo Pride festivities this past June 2023.
    The City of West Hollywood has recently purchased the street lights within the City from Southern California Edison. Please report all street light outages to Public Works by calling 323-848-6375 or via their online portal by clicking here.
