Snow is already falling on the high country, and while Christmas is still a long ways off, the town of Granby is about to start looking a lot more like the holiday season.

The Granby Main Street Design Committee has contracted with the holiday lighting company Christmas Décor of Steamboat Springs to install lighting throughout the community in two phases.

Dustin Lindahl, owner and operator of Christmas Décor, was in town Monday and Tuesday to set up phase one of Granby’s new light displays. The lights put up in phase one will remain up year-round in Granby for at least the next three years.

Phase one features light poles on Main St. wrapped in LED mini lights emitting a white twinkle lighting, aspen trees near the car wash at the west entrance to Granby and the large pine tree in the courtyard of Granby Dental. Lindahl explained small, white twinkling lights are becoming common year-round accents to mountain communities throughout Colorado.

Phase two of the lighting project will be completed by Nov. 20, just in time for the winter ski season. Phase two will feature LED-lit greenery in the Granby Municipal parking lot as well as lit greenery on various light poles on Agate Avenue. Phase two will also feature additions to the large pine tree near Granby Dental. In Nov. Christmas Décor will install LED tube lights that simulate falling snow on the large tree.

The design plan was developed by the Granby Main Street Design Committee. The seven person committee includes Michele Snow, Kathy Hulley, Patty Peterson, Jeanie Kemp, Melissa Johnson, Tom Pierro and Rod Lock.

The Design Committee expressed its thanks to the Granby Board of Trustees for approving the project.
