Streetlights are required to be installed by developers in new developments; however, many older developments do not have streetlights. For existing developments or areas without streetlights, the County's streetlight policy governs.
Getting Streetlights Installed
If residents are interested in having streetlights installed in their neighborhood, they must call 757-890-3531 for details. Streetlights can only be installed at certain locations (such as intersections) and the cost of installation plus 5 years of operating costs must be borne by the residents requesting such streetlights.
