Are you interested in owning an iconic piece of Tacoma’s Lincoln International Business District? If so, dozens of bright red ornamental street lamps that once lined the neighborhood’s sidewalks are being offered up for donation by the City of Tacoma.
“Several community members have told me they were interested in the fixtures,” Debbie Bingham, the International Program Development Specialist in the City of Tacoma’s Community and Economic Development Department, told the Tacoma Daily Index this week. “This is one of the reasons we put them up for surplus — to see if someone can reuse them and not simply recycle them.” Bingham noted the light fixtures are over 20 years old, yet have no historical significance other than “possible sentimental significance to the community.”
In following with the City’s policy for processing surplus property, the street lamps are available to government agencies now, but will be available to non-profit organizations beginning on Mon., May 4, and the general public beginning on Mon., May 11.
