SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento neighborhood plans to turn off crime by turning on the lights — coming together after a string of murders, robberies and shootings.
Neighbors say they don’t feel safe walking along some midtown streets because there isn’t enough light. So the Midtown Business Association is paying SMUD to install around 12 new street lights in the area between J and K Streets, and from 21st up to 28th Streets.
“I go to Biba — that’s my neighborhood bar. It’s not that far, but people think I’m crazy, a woman alone at night, walking there in the dark. I never really worried about it. I was aware of my surroundings, but now I don’t do that. I will drive over there when I know I’m going to be there and it’s after dark,” resident Barbara Steinberg said.
The new lights are expected to be up by the end of the month.
