J. O’Connell & Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that through our services the Cities of Albany, Schenectady and Troy were awarded $1,000,000 in support of their Breathing Lights project. This project will focus on urban blight by illuminating 500 available homes in the three cities for two months at the end of 2016. Utilizing green lighting mechanisms the light’s intensity and pace will create a breathing effect and bring attention to buildings that once housed families in vibrant neighborhoods. The Project will culminate in a regional summit addressing the issue of building vacancy.
This funding was secured through the Bloomberg Philanthropies.
