Streetlight Policy

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.

Report a Streetlight Outage

To report a streetlight outage, call Dominion Energy Virginia at (866) 366-4357 or visit their website.

Residents should contact Dominion Energy directly if the outage is a public streetlight. For a neighborhood light on private property, residents must ask their Home Owners Association to contact Dominion Energy. 

If you are unsure about who to report a streetlight outage to, please contact Development Services at (757) 890-3531.  

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.
