The City of Innsbruck, a partner city of New Orleans, requested the donation of a genuine New Orleans street lamp in the spring of 2011 from the Mayor's office.
CenterAustria organized a group of "UNO Friends of Innsbruck" to make contributions towards donation of such a street lamp to the City of Innsbruck. Generous faculty and administrators associated for a long period of time with the UNO International Summer School in Innsbruck were the principal contributors in this effort.
This original street lamp was sent by the Bevolo Company in the French Quarter to Innsbruck in December and is now going up in a model environmentally friendly public housing project in Innsbruck, where all sister cities of New Orleans have donated street lamps.
Some of the donors recently visited Bevolo's in the French Quarter for a photo op.
