Holiday Rooftop Lights in Downtown

Tue, Nov 08, 2011

The Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) is looking to coordinate bulk rate pricing for rooftop lights/services that downtown merchants or building owners will have the option to purchase (directly from local electric companies). ADHDA will serve only as a coordinator between merchants/building owners and contractors for rooftop installations and maintenance. Some merchants/building owners may choose to do the lighting themselves. Whether they want to contract with a local electric company is up to them. ADHDA would like to be able to provide downtown merchants and property owners with quotes for this work. We are currently reaching out to the local electric companies to determine whether they are interested in assisting with the holiday rooftop lights downtown.

In previous years, the Christmas Club (aka the Greater Astoria Historic Holidays) has maintained the majority of the rooftop lights in Downtown Astoria. This maintenance has included installation and replacement of burnt out or missing lights. Last year, the Christmas Club made sure that the rooftop lights were in good shape by contracting with Clatsop Electric to put them up and replace lights and attachments. As of this year, they will no longer be providing this service and have turned the coordination of the above over to ADHDA.

As soon as more information becomes available, we will let you know. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please contact Downtown Coordinator Blaire Buergler at 503.791.7940 or
