ROCKFORD — The Rockford Park District is asking citizens to help secure a new LED lighting system for the Riverview Ice House.
The Madison Street rink is one of 33 selected as quarter-finalists for the “Light Like the Pros” promotion, sponsored by Eaton’s Ephesus Lighting and the American Hockey League.
The Park District says the 43-year-old Riverview Ice House is “in need of major repairs and upgrades.”
“Adding efficient lighting would be a great enhancement to the facility and help us be more sustainable and also likely save on operational expenses due to non-energy efficient lighting,” said Scott Burfoot, RPD Ice Facilities General Manager.
Citizens can simply click to vote by visiting the icehouse’s page at lightlikethepros.com/vote. You can vote every 24 hours through Feb. 2.
“A lighting upgrade at Riverview Ice House would dramatically enhance the experience for all that use the facility including our players. We hope everyone will continue to vote to get Riverview Ice House in the top ten,” said Mike Peck, Director of Business Operations for Rockford IceHogs.
Riverview Ice House is the official off-site practice facility of the Rockford IceHogs and the location Jr. IceHogs Youth Hockey program. R.
