A highly visible symbol that lets travelers know they are entering Vestavia Hills has a new look at night.

The Vestavia Hills National Night Out Committee, with City Leaders and members of the Sibyl Temple Foundation held a symbolic lighting ceremony at the Sibyl Temple Tuesday night.

The temple is located on Highway 31 at Shades Crest.

The lights at the Sibyl Temple were changed to blue, serving as a symbol of community unity, promote awareness and respect for those lost on public roadways.

The committee also announced its upcoming National Night Out on October 1, 2013, from 6:00pm to 8:30 pm, at the Vestavia Hills United Methodist Church.

Also, the Vestavia Hills Police Department is launching "Operation Blue Shield", which is designed to combat distracted driving and promote a safety program for teen drivers.

After Oct. 1, 2013, the blue temple lights may be used as a symbol of respect for anyone tragically lost on city roadways and recognition for national holidays or significant days of recognition and reflection.
