The city policy regarding the installation of street lighting on residential streets is done through a petition process.
Investigations to justify consideration for the installation of street lighting are done only for an entire block.
They are made upon receipt of a petition signed by a minimum of 51% of the residents of property abutting on the entire block in question.
If justification is warranted, the street lighting will be installed under the following provisions:
Street lights will be installed on the entire length of the block.
The number, size, type and location of street lights to be installed will be determined by the City of Norfolk.
Although it is recognized that a certain amount of illumination will spill onto private properties as a result of the installation of the street lights, no shielding or shading of any type will be authorized in order to prevent this from occurring.
