Street lights are installed by the developer of a neighborhood according to City standards outlined by ordinance.
Generally, one street light should be installed at each street intersection and additional lights should be installed at other locations along a residential street so that they are not farther than 600 feet apart nor closer than 150 feet apart.
It is important to note that street lights are not intended to illuminate the fronts of buildings; in fact, they are designed not to do so (by directing the lighting downward). They are also not intended to illuminate the entire roadway or sidewalk. Instead, they are intended to help motorists and pedestrians navigate a neighborhood in the dark by pointing out where the intersections (and cul-de-sacs) are and, in the case of midblock lights, drawing you along the roadway towards the next intersection.
If you believe our neighborhood does not meet these standards, please call Public Works at (972) 924-4510 and ask to speak with the Streets Division.
If the lights in your neighborhood do not meet City standards, the City will not install any additional lights, However, your homeowner’s association (HOA) may have additional lights installed, as long as they meet the spacing requirements outlined in City ordinance and the HOA pays for the additional lights.
