Background and Discussion:
As part of the proposed improvements within Sims Bayou Regional Park, a pedestrian bridge is included to enhance trail movements within the park. The service outlet location statement is needed to establish electrical service from CenterPoint Energy to power lighting along the bridge.


Expected Impact:
Approval of the service outlet location statement will allow CenterPoint Energy to provide electrical service for lighting along the pedestrian bridge, which is needed to enhance trail movements and safety along the bridge.

Alternative Options:
Lighting along bridges requires a power source, which is typically obtained through CenterPoint Energy. Alternative options include solar power, which is not consistently reliable, or not to install lighting along the bridge.
