“Light Up Downtown” Commemorative Sponsorship Program

Tree_Lighting_ProgramIf you’ve visited the Champs Elysees or other well-lit boulevards around the world, you know that the beauty of tree lighting is unequalled for ambiance and a sense of well-being in commercial, urban settings.  Downtown SLO is proud to have joined that list!

This is your chance to demonstrate support of the program, Downtown SLO, the community and, at the same time, commemorate your loved one, civic organization or other designee with a lighted tree sponsorship.  Only a few trees remain available in the Downtown area along Higuera Street between Morro and Garden Streets. Each sponsored tree will exhibit a forged bronze, personalized plaque securely affixed to the tree grate in recognition of its sponsor.

Each tree has been outfitted with the highest quality LED, professional outdoor lighting products with an estimated 25-year life expectancy.  Thoma Electric, a highly reputable electrical engineering/construction firm in our area, developed a state-of-the-art plan in conjunction with the City of San Luis Obispo’s Downtown Maintenance and Beautification Project.

This is a ONE TIME commitment.  Your tree will be outfitted and maintained, including utility costs, throughout its lighted lifetime with no additional payment.  We also offer a convenient payment plan and a multi-tree discount.

Executive Director Dominic Tartaglia would like to meet personally with you to discuss the opportunity to be one of the elite sponsors in this wonderful program.
