MUNICIPAL SMART CITY STREET LIGHT CONVERSION AND EVOLVING TECHNOLOGY GUIDEBOOK

The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) carrying out federal requirements for cooperative transportation planning and programming within the metropolitan area surrounding the Albany-Schenectady and Saratoga Springs urbanized areas. The study was proposed by the City of Saratoga Springs to create a guide for converting high pressure sodium street lights to LED smart technology. It is funded through CDTC’s Smart Communities Program which was launched in 2018. The project has a budget of $20,000 for consultant services and $5,000 of in-kind contributions from Saratoga Springs staff. The proposed project is related to the New Visions’ commitment to advancing technology to improve safety, operations, and environmental quality. This proposed project will identify available LED smart technology, the features available, and how those features help advance both the City of Saratoga Springs safety and sustainability goals and CDTC’s New Visions core principles. Letters of interest will be due at 5:00 PM on Friday February 22, 2019 at the Capital District Transportation Committee offices (Attn: Jen Ceponis), One Park Place, Main Floor, Albany, NY 12205. One (1) hard copy of the submission and one (1) electronic copy on a CD or USB drive are required. Jennifer Ceponis from the CDTC staff will serve as the contact for proposals and administrative questions. Her telephone number is (518) 458-2161.
