The original lampposts and neutral ground project began in 1915 under Mayor Charles Lauve. A 1916 ordinance prohibited chickens from walking on the boulevards, and "Do Not Hitch" appears on each lamppost. On February 22, 2005 a ceremony commemorated the restored lampposts on their ninetieth birthday.
