Your feedback wanted on improving the streetlights

May 27, 2016 8:07 am by

A neighbor wants your feedback on this:

I think the time has come to make some minimal, but important improvements to some of the street lights in the neighborhood. I could be in the minority here, but I find that the amount of spillover light into surrounding properties, backyards, bedrooms, etc. is excessive!

I think if the neighborhood organized itself, we could petition Dominion to install directional shields (see attached image for an example) on many of the streetlights that are in our alleys and streets so that they illuminate our sidewalks and streets but not the full interior of our houses.

There are some obvious safety concerns that would need to be considered, but I think most of that could be addressed by less intrusive lighting fixtures installed by individual homeowners such as motion sensor lights or front/back porch lights.
