Description

This project provides for the installation and upgrading of streetlights countywide with an emphasis on residential fill in areas, high crime areas, pedestrian generator locations, and high accident locations, as well as the conversion of existing streetlights to a more energy-efficient technology. This project also provides for the replacement of streetlights that are knocked down, damaged, or have reached the end of service life. The March 2010 Report of the Infrastructure Maintenance Task Force, identified streetlights in need of lifecycle replacement. Streetlights that pose safety concerns and are no longer functioning to the specifications of original installation are also replaced under this project. In FY20, the County will complete the upgrading of approximately 25,000 streetlight fixtures to light-emitting diodes (LED) through an energy savings performance contract.

Justification

A County Council resolution dated June 25, 1968, requires Montgomery County to provide for the installation of streetlights in those subdivisions that were platted prior to February 1, 1969, when the installation of streetlights was not a requirement of subdivision development. This project provides funds for these streetlight installations, as well as for lighting of the public right-of-way when the existing lighting is substandard to the extent that public safety is compromised. County residents regularly ask for the addition of streetlights to help improve safety and reduce crime within their communities. New streetlight plans are developed in conformance with established County streetlight standards and are normally implemented under contract with the pertinent local utility company.
