Commissioners, Mayor Join PSEG and Hopeworks Unveil Lighting Project

(Camden, NJ) – On Thursday, the Board of Commissioners joined Camden City Mayor Victor Carstarphen and representatives from PSEG and Hopeworks to unveil a recently completed

project aimed at improving city safety, while supporting some of the city’s young adults in their burgeoning careers.

In August, the city of Camden launched a project to audit the streetlights in the Whitman Park area. The project was in partnership with Hopeworks, a nonprofit organization that helps young adults between ages 17 and 26 transition into long-term living wage careers. Members of the organization’s GIS (Geographic Information Systems) team mapped the neighborhood and tracked where streetlights are, assessed the conditions and determined whether the lights worked or not. The data recorded was added to an interactive map and shared with Camden’s Department of Public Works and PSEG.
