Subject:
Public hearing regarding a proposed street light reduction program and order to approve the list of proposed lights scheduled for removal.  

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
Summary:
The Town currently has 614 street lights. The first stage of this program proposes to eliminate 174 of them. The Town targeted street lights that were not over an intersection or over pedestrian amenities. At this time, the Town did not include street lights that were part of recent subdivision plans. To eliminate these lights would likely require action by the Planning Board and/or Town Council. These lights may be addressed in the future.

Attached are two documents that identify the proposed street lights to be eliminated. The streetlight elimination list has the street and pole number of the street lights that are proposed to be eliminated. The streetlight elimination map displays all of the Town’s street lights, with the proposed lights to be eliminated in blue and the remaining lights in yellow.  There is also a street light layer on the on-line mapping portion of this website.

The Town has placed a green sign on all the poles that are targeted for elimination.

We have attached 2 documents that incorporate all public comments received as of May 24, 2010.
