Streetlight Citizen Petition Program

Please note that due to funding limitation, petitions for new streetlights installation cannot be accepted at this time. However, streetlight petitions to upgrade existing streetlights will be accepted.

This program provides for the installation of streetlights on public roadways through a citizen petition process.

Key Benefits of Streetlights

Program Summary

The county pays the utility companies for the operation of streetlights. Subject to the availability of funds, the county may also pay for the installation of new citizen petitioned streetlights at approved locations. Periodically, when funds are available, petition requests from individual property owners and homeowner associations for new streetlight installations will be accepted by the county, and evaluated with other citizen petition requests received countywide for possible funding consideration. However, at the current time, there are no funds available for new streetlight installations and the county is not accepting citizen petition requests for new streetlight installations. Communities may choose to make a non-reimbursable contribution for the installation of streetlights, and the county will pay the operation and maintenance costs for these streetlights.
