Econolite Joins with AOC7 Association in Local Long Beach Neighborhood Partners Program

Traffic cabinet wrap artwork featured at July 22nd unveiling of “Art on 10th Street” event

Anaheim, Calif., August 3, 2017 – Econolite today announced that it was selected by the City of Long Beach’s AOC7 Neighborhood Association to help to continue delivering on its mission to improve the overall quality of life within the community and enhance public safety. AOC7 stands for Anaheim, Orange, Cherry & 7th St. These four streets represent the borders of the community (2nd, 4th & 6th Council Districts).

As part of phase one of the Neighborhood Partners Program (NPP) grant that AOC7 received, the association unveiled new artwork on 10th Street as part of a community beautification campaign, using traffic control cabinets as the medium.

“The Art on 10th St. event was a tremendous success, representing the level of accomplishment we can reach by joining residents and businesses to improve our communities,” said Mary Simmons, a founding board member of AOC7. “In addition to the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 6th Council Offices and our amazing volunteers, I want to thank Econolite for helping us make a lasting improvement in our community with the incredible artwork wrap on the traffic cabinets.”

Econolite was selected to provide traffic cabinet wraps using AOC7-chosen artwork. Working with its partner, Clean Slate Group (Bozeman, MT), Econolite installed four custom traffic cabinet wraps. The little to no-maintenance anti-graffiti wraps are ideal for supporting beautification programs such as NPP. The wraps are chemical and UV-resistant and only require simple cleaners to remove spray paint, adhesives, and markers.

“We are excited and honored to work with community leaders and neighborhood associations like AOC7 in their mission to build stronger beautiful communities,” said Econolite VP of Marketing Persephone Oliver. “It’s amazing what AOC7 has been able to accomplish – from literacy programs to neighborhood beautification. Econolite looks forward to continued work with AOC7 and the great improvements they are making in the City of Long Beach, and we look forward to working with other community enrichment programs across the U.S.”
