The Lamplighter – the best local newspaper!

The LampLighter is Cooper-Young’s neighborhood newspaper. Our monthly publication strives to help our community become a better place to work, live, learn and play. We try to report the important stories. We want to tell our readers who their neighbors are, what changes are occurring in the neighborhood, when public meetings that affect our community are held and where new businesses are locating.

We hope that having this information will encourage our community to get involved and start making CY the best community it can be.
