Tempe City Hall becomes a sustainable rainbow of color thanks to new lights

Post Date:03/27/2019 8:30 AM

When the light bulbs donning the top of Tempe City Hall were in need of replacing, in true Tempe style, the city didn't just reach for plain white bulbs. Instead, the City of Tempe looked for sustainable and glorious options. 

Tempe City Hall is now decorated by 817 beautiful LED bulbs that not only are more energy efficient, they can glow in any color of the rainbow. 

In honor of Pride celebrations, Tempe City Hall will wear a rainbow of colors from  7 p.m. until 7 a.m. every day in April. In the future, the bulbs could glow purple for Domestic Violence Month, green for St. Patrick's Day or red, white and blue for Independence Day. 

The project took one week to install on the inverted pyramid that is Tempe City Hall. The bulbs are expected to last many years.  

"These lights allow the building that is the seat of our government to reflect Tempe's core values of inclusivity and equality and to celebrate our community in creative and colorful ways," Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell said.
