DALTON -- About 10 residents of Pinecrest Drive and Westview Road successfully petitioned the Board of Selectmen to install six or seven street lights in the neighborhood.
Selectmen unanimously agreed with the residents’ contention that lighting would improve safety on the two streets.
Selectman Stuart Sargent then amended the favorable motion to say other neighborhoods could make the same request.
"If we do it for this neighborhood, then we should do it with all the neighborhoods without lighting," he said. "Then we’ve got to fix your sidewalks."
No time table for the lights was set.
