These fixtures are a big step forward compared to the city's thinking only a decade ago.  I hope we continue that trend by embracing the advances in the technology that make the warmer-colored, more inviting LEDs more practical and attractive.

Automatic dimming LED street lights are becoming a thing, and it looks like they are saving large amounts of electricity. That's power much better used in that Tesla, an actual positive thing for the environment. One could further well argue if any street lighting is needed at all given the apparent limited access nature of the road.
