Through the Neighbourhood Renewal Program, Building Great Neighbourhoods offers an option for neighbourhoods to upgrade from standard galvanized street lights to decorative street lights, with optional features including colour, pole styles and pole arm types.

About the Program

During Neighbourhood Renewal, street lights with standard galvanized poles are replaced at no cost to the homeowners. If a neighbourhood opts for decorative street lights, the property owners are responsible to pay 100% of the cost over and above the cost of replacing the street lights with standard galvanized poles. Please note that decorative street lights must be installed for the entire neighbourhood.

Decorative street lighting upgrades are subject to the approval of a Local Improvement Bylaw. This is a two-step process where community preference is identified through an Expression of Interest and then decided by a Local Improvement process.
