Streetlight Improvement Project

Streetlight Improvement Project

In 2016, Council approved a pilot project to change all of the street lights in the Pinewood Area to LED lights. With the success of this project and through grants provided by FortisBC, Council has approved Policy #07-03 to change all of the streetlights to LED lights over the next two years. The new lights will be either LED54 watt (equivalent to 100 watt) or LED72 watt (equivalent to 150 watt) with a 3000K (Kelvin) rating. Once completed, there will be a $32,000 in energy savings and reduced maintenance due to the longer life of the LED lights.

As per the Street Light Policy, the City is planning “to remove excess lighting on low pedestrian roadways, dead end streets, alleys and rural roads”. To ensure the removal of the lights will not pose any safety issues, the City will cover the ones slates for removal a minimum of four weeks prior to complete removal.

A map is on the reverse side of this notice that shows the phases in which the LED lights are to be installed.
