II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project would provide for the installation of 16 solar-powered LED exterior light fixtures around the 3 1/2 acre lot. The lights will have 20 foot tall poles and 30 inch diameter raised concrete bases. This type of installation will eliminate the need for trenching and electrical connections. It will also light the grounds making them less attractive to after-hours trespassers and make them safer for people attending evening programs and staff during the winter months.
17. Project Justification: The site has minimal site lighting in the parking lots and between the buildings. The museum and 3 small sheds are on a hill. The workshop, 3 storage buildings, and the Ramada are down the hill at the side of the museum building. The museum is located in a rural setting south of the town of Overton and set off the highway by a winding roadway. At night, the area surrounding the museum is very dark, being removed from other businesses and from the main highway. Security lighting is important for people walking from the parking areas to the museum to avoid falls as elevations change from roadways to sidewalks and on stairs. Security lighting also increases the safety of property such as parked cars, outbuildings and the museum and its contents. Lighting along roadways helps reduce accidents involving vehicles with other vehicles or pedestrians. In 2014 a break-in and attempted burglary occurred in the workshop. Several large pieces of equipment and many small tools were taken and hidden on the adjacent property, and fortunately recovered. The double door into the workshop was broken and had to be replaced. In the darkest months of the winter, staff walks in the dark to the back of the museum to the staff parking area and after evening events, people find the way to their cars with flashlights.
18. Project Background Information: This project or a portion thereof was previously recommended in the FCA report dated 03/21/2002 and 11/04/2009. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey date of 01/30/2014. It was requested in 2013 with ID No. 3135 and a request was begun but not completed in 2015 with ID No. 5230.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Lack of security lighting can lead to accidents for which the state may be found liable. Lack of lighting also may lead to criminal activity relating to parked vehicles, museum visitors, and the museum out-buildings and their contents.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): The Lost City Museum is located in a rural setting south of the town of Overton and set off the highway by a winding roadway. At night, the area surrounding the museum is very dark, being removed from other businesses and from the main highway. Security lighting is important for people walking from the parking areas to the museum to avoid falls as elevations change from roadways to sidewalks and on stairs. Security lighting also increases the safety of property such as parked cars, out buildings and the museum and its contents. Lighting along roadways helps reduce accidents involving vehicles with other vehicles and pedestrians.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues

23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Unknown
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 6/30/2018
