Roanoke County Applications for New Street Lights
Please note due to the current budget constraints, county staff will not be able to review applications for new street lights until further notice. Please check back for updates.

Street Light Requests - Policy and Procedure

The Street Light Request Policy and Procedure sets the evaluation procedure by which all requests for street lighting will be processed. The policy is used to evaluate all requests to ensure the safety of vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Although consideration is given to the crime rate of the area, it is not a major factor for determining the installation of a street light.

Street lights requested solely for protection of private property (i.e. dusk to dawn lights) should be made directly to American Electric Power and the applicant shall assume all costs.
