Concord City Council to decide on Main Street holiday lights color


CONCORD - Even though the holiday season is still more than a few weeks away – the Concord City Councilors are already thinking about Christmas lighting.

The debate? What color should the city purchase when it is time for the holidays – color lights or white lights?

Everyone has a natural preference when it comes to lights, but when cost comes into the picture – it is a topic of holiday debate.

If the trees are draped with white lights it could cost the city nearly $300,000.

The color lights would cost $420,000 but would stay up and change color based on the time of year.

“White would be more appropriate for the city. It’s the better choice anyways so there is no contest for me,” said Janine Lep, a Concord business owner.

In January, the council decided the holiday lighting design would include up-lights for trees. When the council decides which color lights, they will extend to the south end of Concord’s Main Street.
