City approves lighting contract for Newhall

In this Nov. 2013 photo, Arturo and Ana Dirzo take a photo in front of the 23-foot Christmas tree in front of the Old Town Newhall Library after last year's "Light Up Main Street" event.

Santa Clarita City Council members voted Tuesday night to once again deck Newhall come holiday time.

The council awarded a one-year, $128,045 contract with two, one-year renewal options in the annual amount of $74,305 to Mobile Illumination for the “Main Street Holiday Decoration Program.”

The city approved spending $100,000 to decorate Main Street last year “in an effort to create a unique holiday destination that would help attract shoppers to Old Town Newhall,” according to the council agenda, and this year is expected to include many of the same features.

A main element of the decorating program will be a 23-foot-tall tree, lit and decorated in front of the Main Street entrance to the Newhall Library.

Two skylines will also be installed over Main Street — one near Eighth Street and the other near Sixth Street.

The trunks and canopies of trees along Main Street between Lyons Avenue and Sixth Street will also be decked out in lights, according to the council agenda.

The schedule outlined in the council agenda has the decorations being installed in October, with a “holiday lighting event” scheduled for Nov. 15.

In November and December, the lights will be turned on from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. each evening.

In January, the main tree and skylines will be removed, though year-round lighting is expected to remain in the canopies of the trees on Main Street.
