Union County Illuminates Community Spirit with New Cutting-Edge LED Lighting System

The Union County Board of County Commissioners proudly unveils a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, which will illuminate the Union County Courthouse. As part of Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados’ 2023 theme of “Building a Stronger Union County,” this new “Union County Shines” initiative, will dynamically change the lights to mark significant occasions, holidays, organization themes, and showcasing our community accomplishments.

“I am excited to end the year with this stunning new addition our historic County Courthouse, which will not only serve as a source of community pride but also enhance the overall ambiance of the area, creating a sense of togetherness among residents,” said Commissioner Chairman Sergio Granados. “The installation of this state-of-the-art LED lighting system signifies our commitment to modernity and community engagement. The County Courthouse, was the perfect location for the lights, as is serves as the County seat and hosts numerous flag raisings and cultural events throughout the year. It stands as a symbol of celebration and with the new lights, I believe it will continue to shine on the diverse and vibrant spirit of Union County.”

The first set of colors to kick off the system will be red and green in light of the upcoming Christmas holiday. The Courthouse will be able to illuminate for different occasions, for example a vibrant, rainbow of colors during Pride Month, a calming blue for World Autism Awareness Month,  cultural celebrations or the victorious colors of a local winning sports team. There is a number of things that the courthouse will be a canvas upon which it paints the stories and celebrations that make Union County unique.

The newly installed LED lighting system is a testament to Union County’s commitment to bringing a sense of unity and celebration among its residents. The system, managed entirely through a user-friendly mobile app, allows for the customization of lighting colors, transitions, and effects. This app-based control ensures flexibility and adaptability, making it easy to synchronize the Courthouse’s appearance with various events and causes.
