Designers for the Heritage Park renovation offered several styles of lighting for the commission's review; the verdict was the bell-shaped fixture with the S-curve on the arm — as long as it's black.

The commission on Wednesday afternoon voted to approve the bell-style light poles by Kim Lighting.

"Personally, that looked like the best combination of old and new," Chairwoman Justyna Carlson said.

Commissioners agreed, dismissing several other options as not up to snuff.

Zumba Dancing in the Streets is adding a beer tent this year.

"DeFazio's worked," he said. "What's not working is the price point ... We're going to change it up to a cheaper price point."

Lanfair said it was harder for customers to spend $15 to $20 a meal. The new offerings will be closer to $7 to $8 with promotions like "Taco
