Citizen complaint of the day: Jamaica Plain light pole just a tad out of alignment

Leaning pole of JP

Man standing completely straight for reference, no doubt.

A concerned citizen files a 311 complaint about a tilted light pole at Dungarven and Kenton roads in Jamaica Plain:

Pole has dangerous lean and is spilling light into living spaces as a result. The pole should be taken out or replaced and a dark-sky compliant lamp fitted.

Xiaflex may fix that in time.

I would venture that the existing fixture and lamp are dark sky compliant. Or were at the time of install.

But not when the pole is leaning so off of vertical.

When the aliens show up at that location, we will know why.

311 Response Team: Just put a orange cone next to it and it will be fine until it falls. If it hits someone you can't say we didn't warn ya'.
