NEWS-LEDGER — MAY 29, 2013 —

A tall structure at the Port of West Sacramento will soon sport a blue band of light near the top – part of a general effort to spruce up the facility and increase public awareness about it.

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon recently quipped that a lot of West Sacramento residents don’t know there is a port, even though some of them live in a neighborhood called “Southport.” The facility is actually near the geographical center of the city, near Harbor and Industrial boulevards.

For just about $20,000, the port is contracting with Fluoresco Lighting and Signs to put up the LED lights with blue acrylic facing. The ten-inch wide lights will be mounted near the top of the 200-foot grain elevator.

Electricity costs will be part of the operation cost for the port, which is now leased to a private operator.

The blue band is expected to be lit at night beginning by July 1, a city official told the News-Ledger.
