Requests for Residential Street Lights
Requests for residential street lights may be submitted to the Charlotte County Lighting District. Upon receipt of a request, an inspection will be conducted of the area to determine if the proposed location meets all four criteria set forth by the Board of County Commissioners.
The following four criteria must
ALL be present before a request for a street light can be granted.
- The proposed street light must be at least 300 feet from an existing residential street light
- A direct source of electrical power is readily available at the proposed location
- The proposed street light will benefit at least three dwellings in a cluster (across the street, next door, etc.) A cluster is determined by taking four lots on each side of the street and three dwellings being within those lots
- The requester must be the owner of the property and live in the immediate vicinity of the proposed street light location.
Requests for street lights are received through the online form (below). A Charlotte County staff member will contact the requester after a field inspection has been completed to notify the requester if the proposed location meets all four criteria. Field inspections are conducted in the order that requests are received. If all four criteria are met, the Charlotte County Lighting District will request that
Florida Power & Light
Lee County Electric Cooperative
install the residential street light.
If the above criteria are not met, you may request a security light directly from FPL by calling 941.639.1106 and paying their required monthly fee.
